a closer look at who we are…

…and what we’re about

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 29 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).

Our Mission

Inspired and motivated by a New Testament statement, our singular mission at GRO is to create and maintain a place where your soul can prosper.

This mission defines and fuels everything we do – the courses we create, the spirit we employ as coaching professionals, and the attention and support we give our members both inside GRO’s online community and individually as needed.

The key words in the phrase that drive us are soul and prosper. Think of your soul as your whole inner self – your mind, your heart, your personality, … YOU. And prosper means to help along the way or to succeed in reaching a destination.

This is our driving passion at GRO – to be a helper along the way as your whole self succeeds in reaching dreams and destinations worthy of you.
