Counseling & Care

We're here for you

Let Us Help

Counseling

One of the ways the gospel brings renewal to our lives is through
counseling for individuals, marriages, or families who are struggling or
hurting. If you are in need of counseling, we would love to connect you
to quality counseling.

Individual

Individual (one-on-one) counseling has multiple benefits and can be helpful for many conditions or areas of struggle, including depression, anxiety, addiction, trauma, and more.

Marriage

Marriage can be complicated. But God desires the best for you and your partner. If you’re marriage is hurting, we strongly encourage you to consider meeting with a Christian counselor.

Family

Family counseling is a great way to help family members process and resolve conflicts, as well as understand and improve communication methods.

Wedding

Would you like one of the pastors from Redeemer to officiate your wedding? Complete the wedding interest form and we’ll be in touch soon.

Premarital or
pre-engagement counseling

Redeemer values healthy marriages and wants to help engaged and pre-engaged couples prepare for the wonderful challenge of marriage.

We’re Family
