Hope & Healing in a Safe Place

By providing a safe atmosphere, our Master's trained counselors develop nurturing relationships offering compassion and care.

They come alongside during difficult situations, helping to ease overwhelming or isolating feelings that rob you of satisfaction and enjoyment.  Within this trusting relationship, you can gain understanding and strength to deal with difficulties and discover new ways of being and relating that transform you and your relationships.

Our Counselors

Our counselors care about the whole person--emotions, body and spirit.  Each counselor has a personal commitment to Christ and provides faith-based perspectives only when it is desired.  The Christian faith is not imposed on anyone.
