Emotional health is a critical component of living life with Christ. GCCC provides support for members of our community going through difficult times via several means:
We recognize the value in processing life with a trained professional. We encourage you to check out websites, arrange for a phone consultation (usually free), and schedule an appointment. Sometimes it takes a few sessions to gauge whether a counselor is a good fit for you. We recommend going with the counselor you feel most comfortable with, who has availability that works with your schedule, and who is most accessible to your home/work in order to have consistent, regular appointments. There is no one-size-fits all model. Limited financial support for counseling may be available through the Benevolence Fund. For more information, see the Benevolence Fund page.
