Why choose counseling via St. Matthew Parish?
The Counselors value the God-given dignity and potential of each individual. When working with individuals, couples, and families they are sensitive to and respect the spiritual dimension of each person in the healing process.
They value our Faith, the Word of God, excellence, integrity, respect, responsibility, self-discipline, loyalty, and gratitude and these values guide the way they approach counseling with their clients.
The counselors act as a resource in the establishment and continuity of parish-based peer support programs and other parish activities. All counseling services are offered in a confidential and professional manner with the goal of helping individuals and families improve their lives and relationships by strengthening their spiritual, emotional and physical well being.

We pray that God bless the services we offer here, and bless you as you continue to grow in a deeper relationship with Christ.
