NEW HEIGHTS COUNSELING

Making more and better disciples through Christ-centered care and counsel.

New Heights Counseling will exist to offer counseling that is –
Christ-centered, whole-person oriented, and relationally rooted.

CHRIST-CENTERED

We believe that the Person of Christ is central to our lives and to understanding ourselves, our stories, and our struggles – sin and suffering. We believe that Scripture is central in connecting people to the gospel.

About Us

WHOLE-PERSON

We are made in the image of God, and as such, we consider how our stories are impacted by spiritual, social, physical, and emotional influences.

Our Work

RELATIONALLY ROOTED

We acknowledge that the church community – relationships within the body of Christ –  is central to our spiritual health and well being.

Our Offices

We serve those struggling and suffering with life’s hardships and we cultivate a culture of discipleship and soul care within the body of Christ.

New Heights Counseling uses a Christ-centered counseling approach where the Bible is the foundation for understanding ourselves and our struggles. The Bible informs basic questions such as – Who are we? What motivates us? How do we understand our relational and personal struggles? How does change occur? Our philosophy of counseling is rooted in God’s Word. We affirm that the Bible is our authority and greatest source of wisdom for all of life – including the various struggles that bring a person into the counseling room.

Our goal is to meaningfully bring the gospel into the counseling room, helping counselees see how the gospel intersects and practically impacts the struggles they are facing. We counsel from a biblical worldview – viewing our identity, our problems, and our hope through the lens of scripture.

But even more than the pressing need for more support, we recognize that there is a great need for counselors who offer help from a biblical worldview.
