Many of the most painful seasons of my life have come when I feel most alone. Satan has effectively deceived me into thinking that no one understands me. No one cares. Even God has abandoned me. It is in those seasons that I most need people - friends, family, pastors, teachers, and yes, counselors - to remind me of the truth that God is with me; that God has placed His children all around me to care for me. Redemption Counseling exists for that very purpose; It exists to walk with you when you are going through those darkest seasons of your life, especially those prolonged, darkest seasons. You are not alone. Our gospel counselors live out 2nd Corinthians, 1:3-4 during every session: "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.”
In other words, as we walk with you through those dark seasons in your life, you will not only find an empathetic ear to listen and walk with you, more importantly, you will find an all-powerful, loving God who is is with you. With King David, you will learn to say; to take comfort in: "Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me” (Ps. 23:4).
We are currently providing compassionate, gospel-centered, redemptively focused counseling to:
- Individual men and women
- Couples (marriage and premarital)
