We all need help sometimes. It may seem like there is no hope for the future or for a relationship with a loved one, but one thing that never changes is that there is always hope in Jesus. Our counselors are mature Christians trained to help you find your way through the storm.

At Foothills Church, we provide several groups to help in times of hardship, however, we recognize that sometimes life’s circumstances require additional attention and care. During those times, we encourage people to seek additional help from a counselor.

We offer Christ-centered counsel for individuals, married couples, and families with one of our biblical counselors. **Call us at (619) 442-7728 and ask for the counseling office, or email  . Foothills Counseling services are free for the first 4 visits, each session thereafter is $40/session.

**Due to high demand, we reserve our Foothills Counseling resources to regular Foothills attendees (3 months or longer of weekly in-person attendance). We also highly recommend joining a Foothills Home Group as this is an excellent opportunity to get to know other like-minded Christians and receive additional support. If you require immediate counseling, we highly recommend New Day Women's Center in La Mesa, Rhombus Counseling in La Mesa, and Family Focus Christian Counseling Center in El Cajon.
