Therapeutic & Counseling Resources

We are so grateful to hear that you are pursuing deeper healing in your life with Jesus through counseling. This journey to find a counselor can seem daunting, so it’s our hope to provide you with a few recommendations to help you begin your search.

Below you will find a list of counselors and therapists who are recommended by Bridgetown Church. To the best of our knowledge, each of these counselors are followers of Jesus and strive to holistically address emotional and spiritual health.

This list is simply a recommendation, not a prescription. Many of our pastors at Bridgetown Church are familiar and acquainted with some of the people listed, though we are not familiar with all. That being said, we are hopeful that this list will serve as a good starting point for you.

Please let us know if there are other ways we can help you as you walk this journey! We are confident that He who began a good work in you will be faithful to complete it.
