Our team is comprised of psychologists and licensed counselors from diverse backgrounds, with a variety of life experiences.

All service providers are professing Christians, professionally trained and accredited in their field, practicing in accordance with state licensing laws and regulations.  As compassionate, non-judgmental professionals, we offer a multidisciplinary approach based on sound psychological principles. We respect the beliefs and values of others and welcome all those who seek help.

At times our team is augmented by counseling interns completing final requirements for state licensure. Interns allow us to provide reduced-fee counseling for those who can benefit from such services.

Interns are closely supervised and are held to the same ethical and professional standards as licensed counselors.

Our team provides counseling services to adults, adolescents, and children. In addition to individual counseling, we offer premarital counseling, couples counseling, family therapy, and psychological testing and evaluation. We also provide training to church staff members and lay leaders on such topics as effective communication; successful conflict resolution; caring for the bereaved; and issues and ethics for those in the helping professions.
