Berkeley Christian Counselors was started in 1977 in response to a growing need in the church and local community for quality Christian counseling. A committee consisting of lay people from First Presbyterian Church of Berkeley assembled a trained group of Christian counselors. More than 25 counseling interns have been supervised and trained at Berkeley Christian Counselors.
