Meeting the mental health needs of the city with Counseling Groups and Workshops

By Anita NK Sung, Communications Coordinator, RCS

This fall, we at Redeemer Counseling Services (RCS) will continue to realize our vision to renew the city by providing both client care and training opportunities. For clients, RCS will be starting its fall counseling groups (

These groups are on topics that address struggles that people face, such as anxiety, emotional eating, boundaries in relationships, how to live a life of sexual integrity and healing from the heartbreak of infidelity. These counseling groups are led by seasoned counselors who facilitate the groups from a gospel-centered counseling approach. Our approach, which brings the gospel into each group topic, is an experience that is rare to find in other counseling groups and is a unique opportunity to receive both professional counseling and a safe place to process the relevance of Christ in what members are experiencing.

We are also excited to share that Redeemer Counseling has grown in its training opportunities for both pastoral ministry leaders and other counseling professionals. In October, RCS will be offering its first continuing education workshop ( for counseling professionals on the topic of integrating a Christian spiritual framework to therapy. After full participation in the workshop, counseling professionals licensed in New York can receive continuing education units (CEUs) from New York State.

In November we will offer another workshop for ministry leaders on the topic of anxiety. As we grow in our training initiatives, it has been a blessing for us to share our gospel-centered approach to counseling to bring renewal and support in both the counseling and church communities.

We have so much more to share about the work that Redeemer Counseling is doing in the city and our vision to expand our ministry beyond what we can imagine! To keep informed about the ways we are growing and to receive some counseling tips, sign up for our Redeemer Counseling Update at
