The vision for Mayfield Counseling Centers was born in an unexpected way. By 2014, Mark had been in the counseling field for four years. As a couple, Mark and Sarah had become embedded in the counseling culture and grew to love the intensity of all there was to learn. During that time, Sarah realized her need for a mentally healthy lifestyle and began the journey of finding a counselor who would be the right fit for her personal counseling needs.
Mark and Sarah researched many local counselors, and Sarah expectantly made multiple calls. However, she received no response. After a two-week waiting period, Sarah finally received a single call. This frustrating progression of events sparked a question, “What is the current quality and accessibility of counseling in Colorado Springs?” If Sarah’s experience was typical, then many more people seeking mental health support must be experiencing similar angst. We wanted to respond to the need we saw before – and within – us.
Mark and Sarah felt called to fill the need for easy access to quality, client-centered counseling. Our belief is that every client should have access to a counseling experience that is combined with high standards of excellence and holistic care.
After careful planning, Mayfield Counseling opened its doors in July, 2015. We started with five counselors and have grown to fourteen counselors in under two years. Each of our counselors brings unique life experience and counseling expertise to Mayfield Counseling. Our staff, both therapists and supporting staff, works as a team to provide the best quality care for our clients. We respond to phone calls within 2 to 12 hours of the initial inquiry and ordinarily schedule intake appointments within the same week. We provide a safe, welcoming environment for our clients, treating them with dignity and respect as their unique stories unfold.
Throughout 2016 and into 2017, a new awareness of mental health needs in our community grew. In response to those needs, Mayfield Counseling re-incorporated into a 501C3 non-profit and rebranded as Mayfield Counseling Centers in March, 2017. Our vision—to encourage and empower clients to enjoy life and grow toward their full potential—is coupled with exceptional care as we continue seeking ways to expand our availability and presence in neighborhoods throughout our community.
Currently, Mayfield Counseling Centers are responding to the epidemic of teen and adult suicides by opening a counseling center in the Northgate/Flying Horse area of northern Colorado Springs. This new center will focus on partnering with local schools and churches, in addition to the specific neighborhood .
To enhance access and availability, Mayfield Counseling Centers North will provide walk-in appointments for teens and their families, as well as a 24/7 crisis hotline.
Our desire is that any person who walks through our doors will find clarity, hope and purpose. We stand ready to walk the journey of life with you.
