Our counseling ministry focuses on the healing of emotional brokenness and overcoming dysfunctional behavioral patterns that plague so many relationships today.  We have a passion for helping individuals achieve the emotional and spiritual health necessary to bring about the kind of balance to their lives that affords them the ability to reach their full potential individually and within the marriage/family system dynamic.
