Our Mission

Berkeley Christian Counselors is a fee-for-service counseling center that provides professional counseling services to clients in the Bay Area and throughout California. Our clients are diverse in many ways, including age, race, gender, sexual orientation, faith, work and personal background.

We help clients address a range of issues including low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, loneliness, relational challenges, marital conflicts, trauma, addiction, grief and more.  

We also offer premarital counseling as well as therapeutic and educational groups on a wide array of spiritual, emotional, and psychological issues.

As a training institute, we provide on-going consultation for Christian licensed counselors as well as supervision for Associates and Trainees working toward licensure.

Our History

Berkeley Christian Counselors began in 1977 in response to a growing need in the church and local community for quality Christian counseling. What started as a Christian Lay Counseling service has now become a professional counseling center and training institute for clinicians.
