Who we are

As far as the east is from the west,

so far has he removed our transgressions from us.

 

~ Psalm 103:12

East to West Counseling is a community of independent mental health professionals who share common core values grounded in the Christian faith.  We offer therapy for individuals, couples, and families.  Each professional has a unique set of skills allowing us to support one another and our clients in a comprehensive and collaborative partnership. 

We are holistically minded, caring for the whole person - mind, body, and spirit.  At the same time, we are trained in a number of different areas and work from a variety of evidence-based modalities and psychological therapeutic approaches. 

We are passionate about serving internationals from all nations around the globe and strive to provide culturally sensitive, compassionate care. We deeply value and respect each and every person, honoring their unique history, cultural values, and faith traditions. We welcome clients from all cultural + religious backgrounds and traditions, as well as those not rooted in any one particular belief.
