All counseling appointments, classes and meetings are offered on a DONATION basis. Donations help us continue to offer our services to others in need.
Counseling is offered for Individuals, Marriage and Couples, Families, Adolescent/Youth, Child Play Therapy, as well as Group Therapy and Spiritual Development.* Counselors provide their services based upon a foundation of unconditional love and acceptance. Counseling may address both the symptoms of client concerns, as well as deeper healing of emotional wounds. Counselors respect the rights of clients to choose the level of healing they wish to pursue.
You are welcome to attend classes and workshops. Unless noted as a limited class size, they are open to all. You can “walk in” at any time. For more info, call 503 644 2339. or link goodsamaritanministries.org/calendar/ongoing-classes/
