Sunrise Counseling exists to provide Christ-centered, hope-filled, and collaborative counseling that is affordable, accessible, effective, and comprehensive by promoting wellness, wholeness, education, and consultation.
But the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn, which shines brighter and brighter until full day.
Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope: Because of the Lord's great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, 'The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.
As the light of the sunrise breaks slowly over the horizon, it dispels the dark of night a bit at a time until your sight is clear and view is bright. Oftentimes, you are not aware of the moment when the sun is full and the darkness has lifted, but the process of day occurred gradually as you slowly acclimated to the day.
It is by this process of lightening and awareness that counseling provides hope for the next sunrise.
"I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen, not only because I see it but because by it I see everything else."
- C. S. Lewis
A Bit About Therapy
ITS ALL ABOUT THE RELATIONSHIP
As Webb (2017) noted in her book on theology and psychological disorder, "A theology of psychological disorder begins, then, at the cross. It begins with a crucified God who knows our suffering, who knows our distress, and who knows our estrangement” (p. 144). This is the Gospel - that we have a sin problem that is worse then we realized, but that God's love is greater than we could imagine, demonstrated by Jesus's birth, life, death, and resurrection on our behalf (Rom 5). Therapy is designed to walk through life with you - acknowledging the contextual, situational, relational, biological, emotional, and social impact and devastation from sin - but to walk nonetheless, knowing that we have hope in a future with our risen Savior who desires relationship with us and has experienced what we have experienced, and has conquered sin and death (Jer 29:11; Heb 4:15; 1 Cor 15:55-57).
With specializations in couple's therapy, adolescence, trauma, and addictions, services are designed to employ evidence-based treatments that honor and promote the dignity of the person as designed in the image of God to live life well - whole and complete - for the glory of God.

By working collaboratively to improve your relationship, couple's therapy supports improvements in individual and family wellness by strengthening your relationship and joint identity.
Hope for Wholeness, Wellness, and Life
Individual therapy focuses on recognizing opportunities for growth and change in your life, working collaboratively to establish and achieve goals towards wholeness, wellness, and life.
Family Counseling & Consultation
