The River's Edge Biblical Counseling & Life Coaching

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
- Psalm 46:1
...casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you...
-1 Peter 5:7


Biblical Counseling

Biblical Counseling is about dealing with events that happen to us -- past or present -- and learning to apply God's solutions to them. All of us experience difficult things in our lives that we can't seem to move past. Sometimes it is something from our past that resurfaces and blind sides us with its ability to stop us dead in our tracks. Or, it may be an issue or series of events from the past that you just can't seem to work through in order to move on with your life.


Here at The Village Chapel, we  believe that the Bible, as God's Word, has within it's pages everything needed in order to deal with our lives -- past or present. Sometimes situations arise when we need a bit more help and support and this is where our Counseling Ministry comes into play.

The fast pace of a hurried generation presents us with many challenges. The difficulties we face in our marriages, parenting our children, surviving in a blended family, working inside and outside of our homes, and struggling with depression, can all be overwhelming. But, God has answers for these stresses and we offer Biblical answers through our counseling ministry.

We have a staff person, Dr. R. Louise Lindsey, Director of Counseling & Discipleship, who is trained in Biblical Counseling and Christian Life Coaching. She is available to counsel with women one-to-one on a short term or long-term basis. If you would like to know more about her ministry to women check out her website at: www.dorcashearts.com

You can also contact her at: 607-699-3355 or 607-727-6397.

Our senior pastor, Pastor Ken, is available to counsel with members (primarily men) who need short-term counseling (1-3 sessions).

Premarital counseling and marriage counseling is available with Pastor Ken and Dr. Lindsey.

Specialized Counseling Support Groups offered periodically include:

  • Single Parenting,
  • Divorce Care,
  • Grief Share,
  • Post Abortion Trauma, and
  • Addictive Behaviors

If you would like further information about our these groups or our counseling ministries, please call  (607) 699-3355.
