God grant me the serenity to accept things I cannot change;
Courage to change the things I can;
And wisdom to know the difference.

Welcome to Spes Salvi Counseling Services

Our intention at Spes Salvi is that you will find a “reason for hope.” Whether you are experiencing grief related to the loss of a loved one, health issues or life transition, or are looking for ways to improve your relationships, Spes Salvi can help you through therapy.

Spes Salvi Counseling Services was established by Mary Lou Konsin, a Licensed Professional Counselor, whose goal is to provide a safe place for her clients to share their stories where they feel listened to and heard. Mary Lou feels it is a blessing to serve those who invite her into their lives. She believes that the answers to one’s struggles lie within the individual and that as facilitator her role is to assist the client in discovering their strengths and existing resources while supporting them as they identify areas of concern and develop coping strategies to life’s challenges.

At Spes Salvi the focus is on the holistic well being of the client and the importance of the mind-body connection as it relates to one’s sense of self. Mary Lou’s approach to therapy as a mental health professional is guided by her faith and commitment to the dignity of the human person as she recognizes one’s spirituality as being central to their inner healing.

Mary Lou embraces her profession as vocation as it defines not only what she does but who she is. She is available to serve you on your journey as you discover the healing power of hope and possibilities for change and growth.

God bless you.
