Why Biblical Counseling?

Some people know they need help dealing with difficult things in their life. Yet, they also know they want help that is Biblically-based. This is where we come in. We offer Biblically-based counseling to those who want to understand how to be pleasing to Christ as they heal, learn to walk in peace, and handle the challenges of life.


The purpose of Arise Biblical Counseling is to help individuals, couples, and families address concerns, understand their identity, and learn effective, personal, and interpersonal approaches to applying Biblical principles. Our goal is for you to heal, walk in peace, and meet life's challenges in a way pleasing to Christ. To do this, we meet with individuals or groups and offer Biblically based counseling services and confidentiality. Please note that counselors will offer Biblical counseling rather than professional mental health or psychotherapy counseling. Also, be aware that there are some limits to confidentiality, and your counselor will discuss these with you before counseling begins.


Additionally, if you feel led to support our ministry, we gratefully accept donations through the Arise Church App by hitting the "giving tab" and selecting "Counseling Sponsorship." Your generosity enables us to continue providing valuable counseling services to those in need.

We look forward to accompanying you on your journey towards spiritual and emotional well-being.
