Trinity Counseling Center

Are you looking for a non-judgmental and objective perspective? 

Have you felt stuck with no new ideas on what to do next? Would you welcome the chance to “hear yourself think” and gain some new strategies to do things differently? Want to have encouragement and guidance from a distinctively Christian viewpoint? Looking for ways to improve and enhance your personal relationships: spouse, child, friend or co-worker?

At times, we desire change, but lack the energy or motivation to get started. Psalm 51:12 asks God to “grant me a willing spirit to sustain me.” Or to paraphrase God, help me want to – “want to’”. So, if you are tired of sitting on “good intentions” and are ready to move on, let Trinity Christian Counseling propel you to the next phase.

In the counseling session, you’ll set goals, describe your desired outcome, and discover your role in making those changes. You’ll identify new approaches and strategies you may have overlooked. 


Some target areas include:

Relationships: premarital, marital, divorce prevention, interpersonal relationships; parent, teen and family 
Parenting education: transition to parenthood, parenting through the life cycle, step-parenting
Grief and loss issues: loss of a loved one, divorce recovery, job loss, health issues
Life challenges: depression, anxiety,elevated stress, financial tensions
