Sometimes life just happens. We face all kinds of challenges, traumas, struggles, and loss. When life overwhelms, you may find you need a counselor to help you put things back in perspective. The Bible tells us that there is wisdom in seeking counselors.

If you have a counseling need, here is a local counseling center that is Christian based. Here is a list of counseling services within the Fields of Grace area through Cherry Hill Counseling Services. They have offices conveniently located in Arlington Heights, Chicago, Deer Park, Lake Zurich, Lake Zurich Annex, McHenry, and Vernon Hills.

They offer the following:

  • Individual Therapy for Adults
  • Therapy for Children and Adolescents
  • Family Therapy
  • Marital and Premarital Therapy
  • Group Therapy
  • Health Psychology
  • Evaluative Services

If you or a loved one is in need of help, you may find this hotline list helpful. I cannot personally recommend any one specific hotline. This is simply a list of mainly Christian counseling hotlines that may prove helpful.
