Lay counseling

If you need help, we are here to provide a warm, caring and confidential environment where you can explore your thoughts and feelings in order to get back on the road to feeling better about your situation and yourself. Anew Day offers services to anyone in our community in need of emotional support. If that’s you, our goal is to equip you with essential tools for handling life’s hardships.

We offer one-on-one counseling in an environment of acceptance and compassion, without judgement. Our volunteer lay-counselors have training and experience to help you with your struggles, including relationship conflict, addiction, grief, depression, etc. We counsel people aged thirteen and older. No one will be denied service based on inability to pay.


Our volunteer Lay Counselors are trained and supervised by a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. Training for lay counselors is ongoing. Our counselors come from varied backgrounds with life experiences that span the spectrum of hurts and victories.  They’ve “been there, done that”.  They are made up of a team of dedicated and loving men and women who want to make a difference. Initial training is by a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and each counselor receives ongoing weekly supervision. Our counselors are not professionals, they are “lay-counselors” who have lived through challenges and understand the need for support during difficult seasons of life. We know the tragic statistics related to emotional and relational issues permeating our culture.  We also know that with caring support, lives can truly be changed from seemingly hopeless and empty to purposeful, productive and satisfying lives.

We currently request a $5 fee for all lay counseling sessions. Please reach out to us with any financial concerns and we will do our best to address each individual need as best we can.

Due to COVID-19 related concerns and restrictions, most of our Lay Counseling is currently conducted via tele-heath. However, we do have limited availability for in-person Lay Counseling sessions at this time.
