Our Counseling Center is open. Please call 850-473-4461 to schedule an appointment.

Deciding to seek counseling is a courageous decision.  When we are overwhelmed and hurting, we often do not know where to turn for help.  Olive Counseling Center is here to provide a nonjudgmental, compassionate and genuine care for the clients we see.  We are staffed with Licensed therapists and interns to provide credentialed counselors in the treatment that is provided.

Each counselor has a sincere desire to be an instrument to assist others in finding wholeness.  It is common to see people stay stuck in a situation and as a result, their heart and home begin to deteriorate.  We do not have a complete understanding of why a person is subjected to pain, but we do know without a doubt there is hope.

Counseling is confidential and our office provides a safe and comfortable environment.  As Christian providers, we are continually moving towards hope.  Hope in knowing you are loved and carried through each challenge you experience in life.  Although one may feel defeated, Jesus seeks to rebuild what is broken and give strength to the weary. 

 

Let us help you today.  Please reach out and call 850.473.4461.
