Selah was used in the Psalms encouraging the reader to take a moment to pause, and reflect. Often in a world of busyness, we forget, or don't desire to take that moment to pause and reflect on the course of our life, or learning experiences. However, in order to reach to the next stage, and grow, this is often an imperative step. In order to feel the most joyous of moments, we also must feel the most difficult of moments. Here at Selah Counseling, we provide a safe space for healing and learning to take place. Located in Parker, Colorado, Selah Counseling is a convenient location for those in the Denver Metro area, Castle Rock/Castle Pines, and Aurora.
