Why would I go to a Christian counseling center?

At LCC, there is someone who will listen, whatever your situation. As trained counselors, we have experience in other settings. However, we have joined LCC because we take seriously our obligation as Christians to carry one another’s burdens. We feel a deep compassion for people who are struggling and we want to respond to them in love without being judgmental. We are led to use our talents and gifts to help others who are in need to become their best. We challenge people to set clear standards for themselves, to guide their lives and their families in an era of value confusion. We believe in healing and growing, no matter how broken and distressed your circumstances appear. Whatever your religious affiliation, race, or nationality, LCC wants you to feel welcome. We will ask you about your spiritual needs and will comply completely with your desires.

How do I make an appointment? What should I bring with me?
