About Us

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


We believe 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.


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.


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

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.
