Mount Olivet Counseling Service is a ministry of:

  • Healing: anxiety, depression, guilt, anger and pain;
  • Supporting: through difficult times and circumstances;
  • Guiding: thorough decisions and choices, looking at options, alternatives and possibilities;
  • Reconciling: of the self to the self, to God and to others.

Mount Olivet is one of comparatively few churches in America which provide professional counseling services to deal with the tensions, pressures, changing attitudes, and stresses of today's living. Our services help people work through their problems through the use of counseling, psychotherapy and/or medication in a Christian setting.  Our therapists include, a Clinical psychologist, three Marriage and Family Therapists, who specialize in children and adolescents, couples and families, and a variety of group therapies, and a Pastoral Counselor.  We also have a consulting Psychiatrist and a Medical Internist who provide medication management and assessment.
All counseling is confidential as defined by law.

Individual/Group Counseling
Mount Olivet's counseling ministry is not only to assist in problem solving, but to build a preventive program for personal, family, or marital problems and to offer the assurance of sustaining helpfulness in the family of God.

We are imperfect beings living in a complex world. Stress, tension and change add to the complexity. It takes courage and maturity to acknowledge a problem and do something about it. Most problems can be resolved if we are willing to work on them. Our professional staff is available to work with you.
