The church should be a place where people feel safe and can heal. We want to create a culture where therapy is accepted and ingrained in our education. We want to be a culture where healing is something people experience together in community, as emotional healing is critical to spiritual growth.
We believe that within a trusting relationship, our counselors will be able to help our clients identify the pain areas that need the most work. As licensed professionals, we are committed to the highest standards of therapeutic practice and adhere to state ethical codes. Our counselors will draw upon their clinical training and formal education to address each unique need.
All are welcome. Let’s get started.
We will filter everything we do in mental health through ultimate truth, which we know is Jesus Christ. However, we are also sensitive to perspectives of other belief systems. All are welcome, regardless of a person’s faith identity.
