Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope. Romans 15:13

Individualized Care

Art therapy is a healing approach adaptable to all ages and needs. Our program has helped provided an avenue for healing for children, adults and even families. The mode of treatment utilizes creative techniques that enable expression of emotions, past hurts and current struggles that are otherwise difficult to express using words.


I Can do all things through Him who strengthens me”  Philippians 4:13.

We begin our work with every client by first inviting God to lead the process.  As you continue in your work with us you will see that God is intimately involved in the healing process, whether it be through the use of scripture in sessions and for homework, or relying on the Holy Spirit to guide the work we do.  In all cases, God is at the center.


At Grace Christian Counseling we strive to create a safe, warm and healing environment.  Art Therapy is one of the unique ways we incorporate this into the healing process.  Art allows for the individual to express their emotions, pains and struggles at their own pace and in their own ways.

Grace’s Counseling Blueprint

Integrating Biblical & Clinical Care

Take off the Mask

Grace counselors act as a mirror reflecting back to you how God actually sees you. Imagine embracing how God sees you rather than putting on a mask.

Heal the Wounds

Our Christian counselors help you unpack your pain. Once you’ve located the root issues, you’ll work together to create healing for your wound.

Remove the Toxins

While it’s tempting to create another mask, our integrated Christian counseling helps you remove the toxic beliefs that are rotting you.

Replace with Truth

All truth is God’s and is critical for your transformation. To be all that you can be, it’s vital you understand who you were created to be.

Grief Counseling

Losing someone you love hurts really bad. How do you keep going when your heart has been ripped from your chest? At first, you’ll likely find support all around. But after a few weeks, the calls, visits, and food stop, and now, you’re alone. You don’t have to journey through grief alone. Grace’s Christian counselors are trained to guide you through this difficult season.

Trauma Counseling

Just over half of us will experience at least one traumatic event in our lives. Trauma can occur through any event that causes you psychological or emotional harm. Some common events are chronic abuse, sexual violence, being bullied, or abandonment. Our Christian counselors use clinically-informed therapies to help you confront your trauma with coping skills you need to break free.

Sexual Addiction Counseling

Do you feel trapped by always thinking about sex? Does your preoccupation with sex interfere with your daily life? Are you putting yourself or others in danger to fulfill your sexual urges? Grace Christian counselors use evidence-based therapies centered around Christ to help you regain your life from the guilt, shame, and disconnection in sexual addiction.

Spiritual Abuse/Church Hurt Counseling

How do you regain clarity about who God is, your identity, and trust for the people of God after being spiritually abused? Churches are supposed to be communities built around deep love for and trust in one another, especially the leadership. Our counselors are ready to help you navigate through your spiritual pain so that you can be free in God and the church.

Spiritual Warfare Counseling

As Christian counselors we understand that there is more going on than just what meets the eye. Since we apply the best and most current clinically-informed therapies from a biblical worldview, we do not neglect the spiritual component of your identity. We are all involved in a spiritual war, and Grace Christian counselors are ready to equip you with the spiritual weapons you need to succeed.

Anxiety & Depression Counseling

Anxiety and depression distort how we feel, think, and handle mundane activities such as sleep, nutrition, and work for extended periods of time. Both are among the most effectively treated mental disorders with routine therapy being one of the most effective treatment options.
