Our Mission

Our mission is to come alongside of people in their journey toward physical, social, emotional, intellectual and spiritual health by applying faith-based principles of Grace and Truth through education and counseling.

Our Method (Approach)

Whether counseling or coaching, our experienced counselors believe that everyone’s journey encompasses growth of the whole person. Our goal is to help our clients achieve their goals of personal wholeness, interpersonal competence, mental stability and spiritual maturity. Although we may have different models of counseling, we strive to have a meaningful relationship with each person. From crisis intervention to Christian spiritual growth, we consistently provide the highest quality service to the people of our communities.


Our clinical staff are professionally licensed by the Wisconsin Department of Regulation and Licensing. Most insurance carriers reimburse us for our counseling services. Coaching is not insurance reimbursable. Some clients prefer to utilize our cash options if they have very high deductibles or co-pays. We hold to the highest levels of confidentiality as we serve our clients.
