How it started…


Counseling Care opened October 2003. We opened as a Christian counseling clinic in the East metro. Since our inception we have created a safe, non-judgmental environment for every client.

We believe that every story matters and the world is a better place when families are strengthened. We have been honored to walk alongside individuals, couples and families, observing and experiencing their most transformational stories.

Our belief as a clinic has consistently been to care for each individual in a professional and caring setting. We know that coming in for counseling begins before coming in the door. Our support staff are trained in a caring environment so that when each individual calls to schedule an appointment they will feel welcomed by a supportive and compassionate professional. Following the phone intake, you will be connected with one of our 20 plus counselors that best fits your needs. Our desire is that you will experience loving and supportive life transformation.
