Psychotherapy Services

We all experience problems and stress. Sometimes these can be overwhelming and interfere with our personal and family life. At Genesis Center we offer professional psychotherapy services by a trained staff with a focus on Christ-centered relationships. Areas of specialization include:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety & Stress
  • Family Issues
  • Marital Issues
  • Anger Management
  • Parenting Skills
  • Trauma and PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder)
  • Grief and Loss
  • Substance Abuse/Dependence 

There is no fee for the initial interview. Ongoing psychotherapy is offered to all regardless of income. We will work with you to establish a fee schedule that you can afford. No one is refused services due to lack of funds.


Spiritual Growth

We offer a variety of opportunities to grow in your faith. Worship opportunities, Bible Classes, prayer walking, and service opportunities are all available to help you grow in your relationship with Christ.


Community Outreach

Genesis Center is a community service ministry of Saint Thomas Lutheran Church. In these times our community has many needs. We constantly assess and reassess the needs of individuals and work to provide what assistance is available. Please call Genesis Center for more information
