Let's Talk Counseling give you hope and a future. (Jeremiah. 29:11b)

Is Counseling for You?

Talking with a counselor is basically sitting down and discussing an issue or question about your life, your family, or perhaps something that's happening at work.  It could be a problem about a change in your life that you can't figure out.  No issue is too large or too small.  Our counselors are here for you.

What's the Difference - Christian vs. Secular Counseling?

As a general rule, both Christian counseling and secular counseling share the same desire to help people overcome their problems, find meaning and joy in life, and become healthy and well-adjusted individuals, both mentally and emotionally.

As Christian counselors, the strategy is to help clients substitute biblical truth for potential misconceptions as they go about their day-to-day lives.  Attention will be given to mental, emotional, as well as spiritual well-being.
