Our motto at Light Counseling is to help individuals, couples, and families find Light out of the darkness by providing evidence-based services with a distinctly Christian approach.

Our licensed clinicians are experienced professionals that provide evidence-based psychotherapy with a distinctly Christian approach. We want our staff to have an eagerness to expand and grow clinically and relationally and we aim to do this by providing ample opportunities for collaboration and training. Licensed clinicians are expected to work independently and exercise a high level of professionalism and care as they maintain a set, weekly caseload. Fit is greatly important to our team and we are interested in staff and candidates who are down-to-earth, kind, genuine, hard-working, creative, enthusiastic, emotionally healthy, and bright.
