Welcome! Counseling Available
Good Samaritan Ministries offers donation-based counseling services to all. Counseling services available are:
- Marriage & Family
- Children & Adolescent
- Trauma recovery
- Spiritual development
Counselors provide their services based upon a foundation of unconditional love and acceptance. Counseling may address both the symptoms of client concern, as well as deeper healing of emotional wounds.
Cost for Counseling:
Our counseling is covered by loving donations, as such, we do not bill or charge for services. We encourage those who come to counseling to consider donating to the ministry but we will never turn anyone away based on an inability to donate.
Who can apply:
Adults over 14 can submit their own applications. We do not deny services based on age, ethnicity, religious background, sexual preferences, gender or disability. Children under 14 may apply for counseling with parent/guardian consent. Guardians, use the Request for Counseling Form and indicate the child’s age and relationship to you on the form. We will contact you for more instructions when a counselor is assigned to your child’s case.
If you are unable to fill out the application for yourself due to other-ability, or limited resources please contact our office at 503-644-2339.

In the parable of the Good Samaritan from the scriptures (Luke 10), a man in desperate circumstances is found, given comfort and care and carried to a healing space. At the end of the story, Jesus admonishes His followers to “go and do likewise”.
For over forty years, the counseling ministry of Good Samaritan Ministries has come alongside the wounded, lost, broken-hearted and discouraged. Through the biblically-based counselor training program, developed and taught by GSM trained and professional counselors, the healing stories of countless people have been facilitated.
To follow Jesus’ admonition to, “go and do likewise,”, you may desire to receive the training to become a counselor at Good Samaritan Ministries.
