Operating Philosophy

At Micah Counseling Services, we believe that relationships are the heartbeat of life. When our connection with others is healthy, we flourish. When it’s broken, we flounder. Our purpose is to help individuals, couples, families, and groups create and sustain relationships that are healthy, nurturing, and empowering. Ultimately, we make it our purpose to build communities of meaning and a world of peace.
