  • I love my counselor. She tells me things I’ve always known and things I’ve never heard before. I’m learning how to be a better person.

  • GracePointe Counseling Center is a life saver for me. From the first second I walked in, I knew it was the right place for me. The music they were playing in the waiting room was my favorite song and the people working in the office smiled and were glad to see me. They told me they would take care of the insurance stuff and I shouldn’t have any problems with my coverage. What a relief that was. It showed me they cared about me and would work for me. My counselor was amazing! He pretty much just listened and got to know me. He didn’t care that I was broke and angry at my ex and couldn’t pay all my bills. We just talked about a couple things I could and then we would talk about how it worked next week. We have been doing that for almost a year now. I am very happy.

  • I LOVE that they are open most nights and evenings. I never miss my appointments. They have changed my life.

  • When my dad was very sick and we all knew he was going to die soon, I called and made an appointment with GracePointe Counseling. I wanted to talk to someone who was a Christian. The counselor I saw told me he had lost his father recently. We talked about that and how he handled it. He told me a story about someone else he knew who had a near death experience. He shared two books with me about death and heaven and how it was all part of God’s plan. He really helped me a lot.

  • Five years ago my husband and I went for a few sessions with one of the Psychologists at GracePointe. He was one of the wisest people I have ever met. We were struggling with a very difficult decision we had to make about a family member who was living with us at the time. He didn’t ever tell us what to do, but he helped us think about the situation in a way that was bigger than the situation itself. We considered points that were true, but we had never thought about before. We were able to make a tough choice and we had confidence in doing so. I recommend GracePointe and especially my Psychologist for anyone faced with the hard choices of life.

If you wish to succeed in life, make perseverance your bosom friend, experience your wise counselor, caution your elder brother, and hope your guardian genius.
