Christian Counseling and Therapy for Teens in Crisis

Our chief goal is to facilitate the restoration of a positive relationship between the teen and their family through therapy, mentoring, and through modeling the love and hope of Jesus Christ.  

We work with troubled teens that have had a disconnect somewhere along the line and have gotten off track in life. Academically, the teens we typically serve have been outstanding students in the past, or have the potential to be so, yet are not currently applying themselves; their emotional and conduct issues are getting in the way of academics.

Most of the teens that come our boarding school are struggling with selfishness, entitlement, and finding motivation primarily in the poor peer choices they are making. They are in need of restoration through a greater understanding of the value of who they are and where they fit in in their family and in the world (their purpose).
