At Crossroads Christian Counseling people receive compassionate and competent counseling from a Biblically based worldview. However, regardless of a persons spiritual journey, Crossroads is committed to treating everyone with love, respect, and dignity. I am proud to be affiliated with Crossroads and I consider counseling others a sacred trust and responsibility.
