  • Reconciling: of the self to the self, to God and to others.

Mount Olivet is one of the few churches in America which provide professional counseling services to deal with the tensions, pressures, changing attitudes, and stresses of today's living for it's members and the community. Our services help people work through their problems through the use of counseling, psychotherapy, and/or medication in a Christian setting.  Our therapists include two clinical psychologists and three marriage and family therapists, who offer therapy for children, adolescents, couples and families. A variety of therapy groups are also offered.  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.
