True Life is not a church, but rather an independent, cross-denominational, non-profit ministry committed to serving the body of Christ and community by providing various training opportunities and personal, one-on-one discipleship done in a counseling setting. The staff at True Life is trained in sharing biblically-based, Christ-centered answers with hurting people.

People come to True Life for personal and spiritual help in resolving behavioral, emotional, marital and parenting problems. True Life provides a safe, accepting, and caring environment where the individual or couple can explore their particular needs. With guidance and assistance from a trained staff person, individuals can discover freedom through a Jesus-centered answer. Our desire is to help individuals experience a dynamic relationship with Jesus and others…moment by moment. In this time of discipleship, the Holy Spirit is recognized as the agent of change.

True Life understands that not everyone is available to visit our office for in-person counseling, whether that be due to distance, work, or home obligations.  Due to this we are happy to offer Cyber Counseling.

Our Cyber Counseling utilizes secure servers via Zoom.  Zoom offers the ability for the counselor and counselee to “meet” face to face as well as the ability to share documents, PowerPoints, and associated media used during the counseling process. All you’ll need is a computer or tablet device that supports live video and an email account where you can receive handouts.

We are available for marital counseling to help couples form a Biblical foundation concerning God’s plan for marriage with Christ as the centerpiece. In marriage counseling we trust God and His Word to reveal underlying issues needing healing and restoration, and we’ll help you see how God’s grace makes you and your spouse better together.

Counseling for Teen Girls (Ages 13-18)

The teenage years can be challenging for both teens and their parents. Adolescents face many struggles such as peer pressure, hormonal changes, academic expectations, and parental pressure, all while trying to discover their own unique identity and find worth and significance as a person. At True Life, we offer a safe place for your teen to talk through their struggles and emotions while learning how to navigate problems in a healthy, Biblical way.

How Does Teen Discipleship Counseling Work?

When you decide to bring your teen in for counseling, the first appointment scheduled will be between the counselor and the parent(s) or legal guardian. This gives the counselor a chance to hear the issues from the perspective of the parent and ensure comfort with the counselor and counseling process. At the second session, the counselor begins meeting independently with the teen, and the parent attends as needed. The conversations between the teen and counselor are private and confidential; however, the counselor will periodically provide general updates on issues covered in the sessions. We recommend all parents go through the discipleship counseling process allowing both teen and parent to relate the same concepts to life situations that arise as counseling progresses.
