Why Counseling?

Counseling can be helpful for people of all ages, for various reasons, and during any season of life. Our counselors will work with you to address any number of issues, and each counselor is committed to helping within a Christian framework.

Whether you are seeking treatment for a diagnosed mental illness or needing help with relational or personal growth, family concerns, or the stressors of daily life, our goal is to help individuals, couples, and families work toward solutions.


Below is a list of needs or concerns that may lead one to seek professional counseling and/or marriage and family therapy:

  • Discover and develop new skills relating to better management of relationships and stress
  • Explore and develop meaningful personal goals and values
  • Work toward the resolution of lingering issues
  • Improve communication skills
  • Transition through the life cycle, and in some cases, decide what’s next
  • Explore career development
  • Live with purpose & mission, focusing upon spiritual growth
  • Better balance the demands of life
  • Rediscover creativity
  • Persevere through seasons of life
  • Consider new perspectives
  • Develop better coping skills for overall wellness
  • Fill in a gap between knowledge, skills, confidence or resources
  • Explore work & life imbalances and unintended consequences
  • Work through life course corrections due to setback(s)
  • Increase self-awareness
  • Identify core strengths and how best to utilize them
  • Reduce complications and simplify life
  • Be better organized and more self-managing
  • Learn to manage symptoms of anxiety or depression
  • Develop a healthy understanding and management of a diagnosed mental disorder
  • Identify and focus upon what really matters

A counselor can provide astute listening, serve as a sounding board, challenge blind spots, and offer fresh perspectives while maintaining professional boundaries.

It is important to remember that counseling is a cooperative relationship between both the counselor and the client(s). For best outcomes, it is important to commit to being an active participant both inside and outside the counseling sessions.

Counseling can have benefits and risks. Counseling often leads to better relationships, solutions to specific problems, and significant reductions in feelings of distress. However, because counseling sometimes involves discussing unpleasant aspects of life, you may also experience feelings like sadness, guilt, anger, frustration, and loneliness. Each person is unique.

It is our desire to be used by God as we encounter hurting people who find themselves at times overwhelmed by unforeseen life circumstances.
