Have you ever thought of your life as a story? It can have ups and downs and several twists and turns along the way. What do you do when the next pages ahead are uncertain? Who do you turn to when solutions aren’t clear? At Cornerstone, we would love to help you walk through whatever chapter you are in.
Your Story Matters
Cornerstone is led by a passionate team of counselors who each have a heart to serve and provide both individuals and families with high-quality care.
When we opened our doors in 2012, we had one desire that drove us. We wanted to become a place where each and every person who entered our doors, no matter how big or small their problems were, would feel cared for, safe, and important.
We believe that faith plays an integral role in the lives of our clients, regardless of the specifics of what they believe. As Christian counselors, we believe our faith guides us in the counseling process with each person we see. Please know, however, that we work with people from all backgrounds, including religious and non-religious belief systems.
We do not seek to impose our beliefs upon others, but we do recognize that our beliefs impact and shape our work with clients. Ultimately, it is our goal to see our clients living out balanced and healthy lives – emotionally, spiritually, and physically. Whether you are seeking individual, couples, marriage, teen, child, or family counseling, you will find that the counselors at Cornerstone are sympathetic to the role faith plays in your life.

“After losing my wife to cancer, I knew I needed someone to guide me through the grief process. The counselors at Cornerstone patiently walked with me for a period of months and provided compassionate wisdom. There was never any rush to get to the end but helped me work through it at my own pace. I'm now back with them again as I sort out the life as a single dad of a teen. I've been extremely satisfied with the services provided by these caring professionals.”Steve
