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.
