ABOUT THIS PAGE
This page contains a list of Christian mental health professionals and counselors that we recommend. It's important to know that seeking help from one of them does not replace our need to develop our own "spiritual immune system." Healthy spiritual formation comes from studying your Bible, developing good habits like daily Personal Worship, remaining connected with a loving community of fellow Christians, and receiving God's wisdom and guidance from your pastors. There are times when we need more specialized help, however, and turning to one of these trusted professionals would be a wise choice.
ADOLESCENTS AND TEENS
If you are seeking counseling services for an adolescent or teenager, please contact Mrs. Sandy Ives, our Director of Family Ministries, via email at email@example.com. She will assist you in locating a provider of those specialized services.
During our series on the Psalms, Pastor Matt Lomenick delivered a message that directly addressed mental health and wellness. The message concluded with a panel discussion made up of our pastors (each of whom shared their own stories) and some of the professionals listed below.
