About Us

The Mission of Gulf Coast Christian Counseling is to restore hope and renew life. We recognize the need for specialized therapy to help people cope and overcome the challenges life brings. At certain junctures along the journey we may encounter problems within ourselves or in relationships with others. Things just break down and our efforts at fixing them seem to fail. We can help. Our services include help for individuals, couples, families, businesses and churches. Our doors are open to clients from all religious, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds.
