We provide a unique, Gospel-centered approach to counseling, coaching, and training for the specific needs of each client.

Gospel-centered Counseling | Coaching | Training

Counseling is about healing.  Often it is about resolving some issue in the past in order to make the present better. We believe lasting change starts in the heart as we apply the Gospel to all areas of our lives.

Coaching is about growth.  We partner with clients who are stuck in an area of life and/or have a goal they want to accomplish and help them move forward from there.

Training is about gaining knowledge, insights and wisdom and then understanding how to apply it to your life. We offer seminars and workshops in counseling, coaching, and leadership. We also offer a variety of training programs.

“Today was worth our 18 years of marriage. You, Ryan, gave us a gift and God spoke truth that we both needed to hear and learn from. I cannot tell you how invaluable your ministry is to us and others.”



“Michael helped me cut through my doubt and distractions and craft a practical plan with simple steps toward my goal: getting employed with sufficient income and opportunity for advancement.  We did it in less than a year.  Michael guided me through task completion and time management, encouraging me but also challenging me at the right times.  He was just what I needed in that station of life.”
