• Understand. Heal. Grow.
    We Can Do This Together

    Stressed? Don’t know where to turn?

    Tired of feeling stuck, wondering how you got here and not sure how to get out? Are you have difficulty letting go of the past?

    Have you noticed a change in your child’s behaviors at home or at school? Are you concerned about them but don’t know where to go next?

    Imagine coming to a place where you are warmly welcomed, valued and listened to. Imagine how your life would be different as you are encouraged and find hope to move forward. Now imagine that this place also honors your Christian faith values.

    Northwest Ohio Christian Counseling was created to provide just such an environment where individuals could address all 4 spheres of life – physical, emotional, mental and spiritual – through all stages of life. We recognize the importance of working with the whole person, not just symptoms.

    You might be initially hesitant to seek out help and support for personal matters, but when you do, you will feel confident that you are taking a courageous first step toward getting to a better place and becoming a better you.
