Temple Builders, LLC was founded to give people the chance to receive quality Christ-based behavioral health support that empowers them to “renew their minds1,” “take capture their thoughts2,” “clean their hearts3,” and “honor their bodies as temples4.” Temple Builders, LLC is able to do this by providing behavioral health services for the whole “Temple” which includes our clients’ mental, physical, spiritual, and emotional states. We believe in the teaming approach to provide holistic treatment. Thus, we make sure that our clients and their health care team’s opinions are considered in every step of our services. As a practice, our professionals collaborate with their clients and other health care professionals who are imperative to their clients’ treatments.
We pride ourselves on making each client’s first step in this journey easy and comfortable. This journey, with us, begins with a 15-minute telephone consultation. During this consultation, clients will be given the opportunity to briefly convey their life challenges, ask any questions they may have about future services, and are provided with the next steps for scheduling their first appointment.
Our Core Values
As we support our clients, we are guided by our core values. These remind us of our dedication to our profession and our passion to guide others in living better, healthier lives.
