 What is pastoral counseling?


     Professional pastoral counseling has been our forte since our office opened in 1989.  Pastoral counseling is counseling performed by clergy in their role as pastoral care givers.  Our counselors have specialized training in both theology and mental health through which we seek to help the whole person - mentally and spiritually.

     Pastoral counseling is helpful in relationship problems such as marriage and family dysfunction, as well as non-illness related individual problems such as deep grief, low self-esteem, severe stress, anger management, spiritual questions, and co-dependency.
