Kansas does not certify Biblical or Pastoral Counselors, so no we are not.
Do I need to be a Christian to see you?
No. Many of the tools and skills we use apply to all people. We do encourage each person to form a new or renewed relationship with the One True Counselor (Jesus Christ), so that you can allow Him to make the changes and not go it alone! We receive people where they are without judgment or condemnation, only with the love of Christ.

There is no lodging on the property. There is a very peaceful Bed & Breakfast just minutes away, as well as various hotels in Salina about 25 minutes away. Kanopolis Lake is a very nice lake that has some rental cabins and the ability to sit and watch the sunset together. We encourage our Salina clients to stay away from home in order to have a complete escape from the world while they are here.
