About Us

Our Mission

Inspired and motivated by a New Testament statement, our singular mission at GRO is to provide resources that help your soul prosper. Think of your soul as your whole inner self – your mind, your heart, your personality . . .  YOU.  

This mission defines and fuels everything we do – the courses we create and the spirit we employ as coaching professionals. In short, our driving passion at GRO is to be a helper along the way as your whole self succeeds in reaching dreams and destinations worthy of you.

Our Journey

Growth Resources Counseling Center opened its doors in 1990 as a local resource for those facing personal, relational, or work-related challenges. That was 30 years ago now, and we continue to maintain our high standard of professional counseling and psychotherapy services to our in-office clients..

However, some while back we began considering the idea of expanding our reach to an online community. After several years of planning and preparation, we are excited to now offer our materials and services to you as Growth Resources Online (GRO).
