The Center for Counseling

Counseling and Education Staff

The Ecumenical Center is a non-profit 501 C3 supported by a professional staff. We use a team approach, drawing upon the unique talents of professionals from the counseling, theological and medical disciplines. Our collaborations allow us to renew a person’s mind, body and spirit.

Our counselors have graduate degrees and are certified or licensed as professional therapists by the American Association of Pastoral Counselors or a state licensing board.
