Everyone has defining moments in their lives – challenging circumstances, relational pain, transitional seasons, sickness and more. How we respond during these difficult times has a direct impact on our future. We want to help you move forward. We want to provide encouragement and help you make wise decisions in some of life’s most crucial times.

Listen to advice and accept instruction, and in the end you will be wise.
Proverbs 19:20 

Nobody’s life is perfect. Life is full of ups, downs, and many transitions in-between. Most of the time when we experience challenging situations, we can lean on friends, family members, or our LifeGroup. Sometimes, however, problems become more complex and we need the guidance of professionals.

Whether you are feeling overwhelmed, are going through a life transition, or are struggling in a relationship, we want to help connect you with a competent Christian counselor. Each counselor, therapist, psychologist, and psychiatrist whom we recommend has been carefully screened by NorthStar for his or her professional expertise, quality of care, and genuine Christian values.
