We are a group of licensed professionals who seek to maintain the highest professional standards in our fields and whose Christian faith is central to our lives and practices.

Founded in 1994, we are grateful to serve Birmingham and the surrounding areas, offering counseling for individuals, couples, and families.


A first session typically begins by meeting the counselor and going over a few aspects related to confidentiality. The counselor will want to know what brings you to the office and will often try to gain a better sense of additional contexts. Depending on the situation, you may begin to develop initial hopes or goals for your time together, to provide greater clarity on the focus of your counseling.

Our counselors work to provide a supportive and caring environment. Issues or dynamics can then be explored and addressed towards facilitating the needed or desired change.
