We Are Looking Forward To Meeting You.

Our Union office is a popular place.  With the rise in population in Union and surrounding areas, we have been honored to help thousands who live in the community.  But it goes beyond that.  Our licensed counselors have master’s degrees in education, philosophy and social work.  They have decades of experience, have earned Nationally Accredited Certification in substance abuse, behavior therapy and employee assistance.  Most important, they treat every client, man, woman, child, young, old,  with the same love and compassion taught by Jesus Christ, without any prejudice to ethnicity, color, religion, sex, physical appearance, income or views.  They are simple compassionate people helping their neighbor.
