Life gets messy and sometimes we need support. Hard things happen like losing a loved one, suffering from depression, dealing with an addition, experiencing job loss, family tensions, marital conflict and parenting struggles. That’s ok. In fact, it’s normal.
God is with us in our pain and loves us in it. At Lake Ridge, we believe to be a healthy community of authentic Jesus followers – we need to give each other the grace to learn and seek support.
Often, it takes the wisdom of trusted people, like close friends, pastors and sometimes a qualified counsellor to walk with us. Seeking help and reaching out are signs of strength, not weakness.
We encourage you to ask for help. Whether that’s a pastor or a counsellor. It’s up to you. Below we’ve gathered a few resources of qualified counsellors and organizations in our community and surrounding area.
