Spirit of Peace Clinical Counseling

In an effort to expand our offerings to help our parishioners, especially during the time of bereavement, we searched for a counseling group to assist us. We talked with other parishes and Spirit of Peace was a common recommendation. We are pleased to formally welcome the counselors to St. Joan of Arc, and we are grateful for the good they have already accomplished here.

At Spirit of Peace Clinical Counseling (SOPCC), we are dedicated to helping people restore hope, peace, and balance in their lives. As licensed professional Christian clinicians we strive to provide compassionate, confidential, and individualized counseling services to enhance and integrate the emotional, physical, social, and spiritual well-being of the individual, couple, or family. We help our clients regain a sense of balance in their daily living and learn to lead more meaningful lives.
