Specializing in Hope

Our History


Oakland Hills Counseling is a Limited Liability Company that serves southeastern Michigan through Professional Counseling and Relationship Seminars. Since 2000 Oakland Hills Counseling has dedicated its services to individuals, couples, and families who have needed help to heal, to grow, and make their way through difficult circumstances. In 2008 Oakland Hills Counseling reorganized into a LLC in Troy, Michigan, and in 2013 Oakland Hills Counseling relocated to Rochester Hills, Michigan. After a long search, our team is excited to have found our new home. We chose a single story medical building that is quiet, with low patient traffic. We designed our suite to feel safe and comfortable to our clients, and maximize privacy. Over the years we have had the incredible privilege of coming alongside hundreds of people to help them restore broken marriages, work through emotional difficulties, and guide hurting children and families. Through our seminars, workshops, and public speaking we have helped thousands of individuals and couples to enrich their lives, communicate and manage conflict more effectively, and apply timeless wisdom and core principles outlined in scripture and proven effective by research—to build strong, lasting, and healthy relationships and families. We have also been able to assist interested clients on their journey to, and grow in their personal relationship with God.


“Oakland Hills Counseling exists to provide hope and healing to individuals, couples and families in a compassionate and professional environment.”

Our Values


We are dedicated to providing competent and confidential services in the context of a caring relationship.


We are committed to helping individuals, couples and families find practical solutions to the problems and challenges they face.


We help our clients achieve personal wholeness, relational stability, emotional health, and spiritual maturity.

We believe that everyone has innate value and dignity, and therefore we provide the highest quality of care for all our clients, regardless of their race, ethnicity, gender, socioeconomic status, religion or beliefs. We are careful not to impose our values onto our clients, nor do we reduce all their problems to spiritual issues. We do, however, consider the spiritual dimension as essential to overall mental health, in addition to the psychological, social and physiological aspects. As much as the client is willing, we seek to integrate each of these aspects of the whole person in the process of healing and growth. Additionally, we rely on core principles outlined in scripture and proven effective by clinical research. We recognize the Bible as the ultimate source of truth and authority in life and practice (2 Timothy 3:16, 17; Hebrews 4:12). We also affirm the life-changing power that is available through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ (Romans 12:1, 2; Galatians 5:22-25; 2 Peter 1:3-8). We make every effort to encourage our Christian clients through prayer, biblical insights, experiencing God’s love and forgiveness, and practicing spiritual disciplines.
