                                                                 Every single one of us goes through periods in our life where we know



                                                  we need change.

                                                                 And sometimes, despite our best efforts, we can't figure out how to get there.

                                                                 Whether you are experiencing overwhelming emotions, an ongoing pattern of 

                                                                                relationship problems, or you just keep running into

                                                                                obstacles that prevent you from reaching your goals,

                                                                                     counseling can help  



Our purpose is to provide clinically competent and truth-based counseling to restore and enhance the emotional, psychological, and spiritual health of individuals, marriages, and families.


About Christian Counseling Associates: 


Christian Counseling Associates (CCA) strives to provide professional, quality counseling within a Christian perspective. We seek to incorporate Biblical values into our own lives and into our work with clients. We do not require that our clients believe or practice the Christian faith, but it is important that our clients realize that our staff does so. 

As a group practice, our staff are trained and competent professional therapists. Within the group is a variety of experience, skills, and professional identifications. We support one another and stay familiar with important new information in the Mental Health field.

The Partners-In-Counseling Program
As a non-profit organization, the fees we charge largely go to the therapists to pay for their time and expertise, with a portion being used for day-to-day operating expenses.
We see Christian Counseling Associates not only as a therapy practice, but also as an avenue for ministry. We desire to help everyone who comes in our door. The only way this works is through monthly support from our community.
A fund called "Partners-In-Counseling" was created so that we might be able to help those who are unable to afford counseling. Donations sent by local churches, businesses, or individuals are used when individuals or families are in crisis, and also need financial assistance.
If you or your church would like to become a one-time or regular, monthly contributor to the Partners-In-Counseling Program, please contact our office at 622-6292.
