Philosophy of Practice

The core of our practice is pastoral counseling which uses sound theological understanding along with professional behavioral and clinical practice and experience. The focus is on wellness, health and healing of mind, body and soul.

Our practice is principled in meeting each person where they are in their life’s emotional, mental, personal and spiritual journey. We offer a place of professional and confidential relationship with hospitality for one’s discovery and recovery of self.

With additional professional network of collaborating counselors


We understand that there is a cost for professional counseling. We also know that therapy works and that it is a worthy investment that changes lives.

Individuals seeking therapy through the Cooperative of Congregations receive a 50% session fee discount.

For others we can offer an income-based rate schedule that makes our services more affordable.

We do not work with insurance plans. Our fees favorably compare in most instances with many insurance plans when total out-of-pocket cost is considered

We invite you to call and discuss with us about how you can be provided quality pastoral counseling.
