The Christian Counseling Center of Dalton is a professional ministry devoted to providing spiritually sensitive, medically responsible, and psychologically qualified counseling and psychiatric services to the people of Dalton and Northwest Georgia. Our generation has been described as facing a time of personal and social uprootedness. That we live in a very mobile age is generally acknowledged. That we sustain some very disturbing personal and family consequences is not always understood much less shared with others. Often we do not know to whom to turn.
The services of the Christian Counseling Center of Dalton are designed to respond to such concerns and to aid individuals in solving their problems of growth, living, and working in a manner consistent with the Christian faith. We feel that each individual is capable of dealing more constructively with his/her own problems given the opportunity to understand more clearly himself/herself, his/her relationships, and his/her circumstances. The Center is interested in participating with persons who wish to increase their personal growth and interpersonal effectiveness through the opportunity of the counseling process.
