This page and the content that it contains is by no means a "cure-all" for everyone. The books, music, and reading suggestions are simply that, suggestions. We realize that each person heals at different times and in different ways and that no one way is sufficient for all. Also, please respect your privacy and do note that anything that is posted on this page can be seen by all. You are not required to disclose information if you are or have been a client. We want Agape Christian Counseling Services and all media outlets associated with the company to be a safe place to express yourself, interact with community, gain support and prayers and to get ideas for living a mentally and spiritually healthier life. We at Agape Christian Counseling Services view our services as a ministry for those who are hurting emotionally. Our comprehensive treatment addresses the spiritual, emotional, and physical effects an issue has upon a person. We provide personalized treatment based upon individual needs while also respecting religious and personal values. The client determines when, how, and if biblical principles enter into therapy. Fees It is our belief and passion that every person deserves quality counseling, regardless of their financial resources or insurance coverage. As a result, we operate on a sliding fee scale. Most insurance plans are accepted. Specialized Training Counselors at Agape Christian Counseling Services seek to provide the best possible care for our clients, and thus are active in pursuing additional specialized education and credentialing. Although specializations vary, our counselors are trained and certified in such areas as Gestalt Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, suicide and crisis, reactive attachment disorder, sexual dysfunction, and substance abuse. Locations We have 10 locations for the convenience of our clients: Olivette (main), South County, West County, Lake St. Louis, St. Charles, Hazelwood, Hillsboro, & Columbia, IL, Alton, IL, & Edwardsville, IL For more information please visit our website: http://www.agapechristiancounselingservices.org/locations/
Mission: In Scripture, the term agape refers to the unconditional and voluntary love of God for us and our call to love one another. At Agape Christian Counseling Services, you are invited to be honest about your past, your current life, and the way you see your future. This level of honesty is often unwelcome or unsafe in day-to-day life. However, your safety is of utmost importance in therapy. A safe space is created to be objective, confidential, and stable in order for you to work through life’s challenges.
At agape, we often take several days before we respond to current events on social media. This is not entirely unintentional. We always try to do our best to make sure that our responses are well considered and clearly articulate our thoughts and feelings on contemporary issues. We also do not want our voice to be lost in the den of clamoring voices fueled by emotion, rather than tempered with reason. Our delayed response by no means indicates that we don’t care. On the contrary, our entire purpose is to facilitate growth and healing and change. We walk alongside people daily, who are tormented with grief, anxiety, fear, injustice, and tragedy of all sorts.

We abhor injustice and abuse of power, at any level. We grieve over the tragic loss of innocent lives. It is very clear that among the myriad of wrongs and evils that plague our society as a whole, that there is profound and irrefutable evidence of social and racial injustice. We know that the seeds of every evil lie in every human heart and that clearly people are capable of all kinds of evil. Be it murder, theft, violence, gossip, malice, selfishness, or any other of the many ills that pervade human kind.
Addressing racial inequality, particularly as pertaining to the law, is necessary and way overdue. As much as we would like to believe that things have been improving in that area, and in some ways we believe that it has, it has been way too ... (continue reading at the link below)
