What We Do

Our Christian Counseling Practice


Our experience enables us to offer effective outpatient, individualized, psychological care. We use various mental health treatments including incorporating individuals Christian-faith.  We treat a number of mental health disorders, and provide a neutral ground to individuals, families, and couples.   Although we are a Christian organization we welcome everyone.

Our Treatment Focus


Our focus is to help individuals heal, energize, and become aware of their inner strengths. We achieve this by providing a neutral safe space, listening to your concerns, and customizing a treatment plan. 

Our Client Promise


We promise to be there for you every step of your journey. Our goal is to help you grow from your struggles, heal from your pain, and move forward to where you want to be in your life. 

Our Therapy

Depression & Anxiety


Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Through counseling and treatment, we are able to help you recover motivation, perspective, and joy that you once had in your life. 


Trauma & PTSD


Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger post traumatic events. We can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of grief and healing. 




Relationship counseling can be beneficial to couples who are looking to strengthen their emotional connection, in all stages of their relationship. Therapy sessions are held with both couples and is a supportive place to discuss issues and solutions to better strengthen your relationship.     

Our Services


Online/Video Counseling

It can be difficult to come to the office for individual counseling.  Using SecureVideo a HIPAA complainant software we are able to offer counseling via laptop, tablet or smartphone. 

Face-to-face Counseling

Counseling takes place when a counselor sees an individual in a private and confidential setting.  

Christian Counseling

Christian Counseling and secular counseling share the same desire to help people overcome their problems and find meaning and joy in their life.  The distinction between the two is that Christian Counseling incorporates faith and biblical prinicples.

Self-Care for Women of Color

Women come together monthly and are deliberate in efforts to take care of ourselves  mental, spiritual, and physical well-being.

Self Care should be practiced daily and so we will learn ways to develop habits of care.  We will consider simple daily practices we can incorporate to be in love with our mind, body and spirit.
We will also explore blockages in our thinking and believing which hinder our practices.

If life feels overwhelming, unpredictable and difficult an exploration of self might be the key to improved mood and reduced anxiety.

Sessions consist of meditation, chair yoga, journal writing and discussion. Space is limited to 10 people.
