Professional Services: Biblical Counseling

There are many challenges and problems in today's complex society. That's why we believe God's Word, the Bible, is so important. Whether you are wrestling with your marriage, a parenting concern, depression, or anger, the Bible has answers.

Calvary's Professional Services: Biblical Counseling and Training Center provides counseling to those seeking God's answers to the questions and problems in their lives. We believe that Scripture is God-breathed (2 Timothy 3:16). It is living, insightful, effective, and active (Hebrews 4:12). God's Word can help you change (Romans 12:2; Psalms 119:11).  

Our counseling specialties include:

  • Individual, Family and Parenting
  • Child, Adolescent and Teen
  • Marital and Divorce
  • Financial
  • Communication and Conflict Resolution
  • Depression, Stress, Anxiety, and Anger Management
  • Chemical and Relational Dependency
  • Physical, Sexual, and Emotional Abuse

  • PTSD and Various Traumas
  • Mentoring and Accountablility
  • Life Coaching Skills

The Center is committed to providing professional, ethical, and confidential services. We serve the greater Kansas City area through our offices on the campus of Calvary Bible College and Theological Seminary. Our counselors are available by appointment, during weekdays and evenings.  You can expect:

Are the counselors qualified?

All of the counselors, whether professors, pastors, or lay-counselors, are trained in biblical counseling.  Most have college and/or graduate degrees in counseling and carry certification or licensure (LPC).  This ensures a staff that is legally and biblically qualified to provide counsel from Scripture. Counselors are equipped to systematically help you by unlocking the timeless truths of the Bible and applying them against the most painful and disappointing challenges of life. Certifiying organizations include the Association of Certified Biblical Counselors, the American Academy of Biblical Counselors, and the International Association of Biblical Counselors. All of the counselors have received background check approval.

What does counseling cost?

Sessions are affordable and a sliding scale is used according to the household income.  Some scholarships are available to help qualified families and individuals.
