Counseling


We all know that trials and tribulations will come. There are times when trials seem to come one right after the other or even worse, multiple trials all at once.

In Ecclesiastes 4:9-10, Solomon wrote "Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. For if they fall, the one will lift up his companion; but woe to him who is alone when he falls; for he has no one to help him up”.



You are not alone! The Impact Christian Counseling Ministry desires to walk alongside you through trying times and help you gain the victory in Jesus Christ. Be it spiritual, personal, familial, or professional storms, we are here, qualified and equipped, to help.


We can work with you via phone, Skype, or in person at our location or yours. Our fees are nominal and reduced rates are available. Remember, faith without works is dead. Take the next step toward improving your situation.
