Family Christian Counseling  Center 

          Phoenix and Chandler



The Center serves families from a faith based perspective that respects personal faith tradition. We offer a wide range of counseling services for all ages and stages of life.

Children's Therapy

We believe that childhood should be a time for healthy growth and development with a happy family. For many children and teens, it is a time of great emotional stress. Children react to stress in many ways including withdrawal and acting out behaviors at home and school. Our philosophy is to help children and families learn the life skills necessary to be successful.

Marriage Therapy

Marriage counseling seeks to identify areas of conflict and communication in a marriage and facilitate healthy ways of resolving them. If problems in a marriage aren’t identified or dealt with in a timely manner, they can grow out of control and bring devastation and possibly an end to the marriage. There is no such thing as a perfect marriage.

Equine Therapy

Equine therapy is a collaborative approach consisting of a client/clients, mental health professional, equine specialist and one or more horses. There is no riding involved, rather the interaction is with horses on the ground. The Family Christian Counseling Center offers this treatment modality which is an experiential form of psychotherapy where horses are involved in the sessions.

Adult Therapy

Individual psychotherapy for adults offers a compassionate approach to therapy, which encourages clients to explore how limiting beliefs and trauma are held in the body—often below the level of conscious awareness. Counselors have extensive post- graduate training in Self Regulation Therapy, a gentle approach that enables the nervous system to integrate overwhelming events and bring balance to the nervous system.

Our counselors have expertise in therapies that are both effective as well as creative and pleasurable. We understand how difficult it is for any child, individual, or family to seek help. Our lobby is a warm place to have a cup of tea and wait for your appointment in a lovely restored territorial style building in north central Phoenix. We also have a satellite office on Dobson Road in Chandler.
