COUNSELING SERVICES AT VALLEY MILLS! 

CLICK HERE FOR MORE DETAILS

CLICK HERE TO REQUEST A COUNSELING APPOINTMENT

Pastoral staff are always willing to provide support and spiritual guidance at no cost, but sometimes life stressors result in the need for deeper psychotherapy with certified or licensed counselors who have specific training in understanding clinical etiology and bio-physical chemical imbalances.

Board Certified Pastoral Counselor (Dr. John Nolan) offers counseling appointments to anyone from Valley Mills Christian Church OR the community for a substantially reduced rate of $25 per one-hour session during his office hours at church on Wednesdays from 2-7 pm. To schedule an appointment, please contact Dr. Nolan at 765-676-5310. We hope that this initiative will bless our community members and families, as access to supportive emotional health services can be challenging.

Social Work Assistance:  In addition to counseling sessions, the church also employs a part-time Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), Robin Paul, that may be available to assist with short-term psycho-social needs and referrals, crisis intervention, and time-limited case management assistance for navigating complex medical and benefits systems that can feel overwhelming. Social work services may be consulted by calling the church office at 317-856-3766, or by emailing robinpaul@valleymillscc.org.
