WHERE MENTAL HEALTH MEETS SPIRITUAL GROWTH
Our pastoral staff is here to walk with those who are hurting and in need of support. However, as our church grows the need for experienced counselors grows as well. We believe that people in the church struggle with the same issues as people outside the church. So, if we want to look different as a collective group of Christ followers, we need to seek help sooner.

“With Praise Professional Counseling, I was invited to share my pain and struggle. I was listened to without judgement and began to grow as a person and in my faith. I am grateful for them.”
“With Praise professional counseling I was able to work through anxiety and negative thinking patterns. Cassandra listened without judgement and provided me with activities to help conquer my negative thoughts. I was at the lowest point I had ever been, mentally, and didn’t think I would be able to overcome it. Learning how powerful my mind is, more about my personality and having someone to guide me through it really made a difference. I highly recommend Praise counseling.”
