Welcome to GRO

Growth Resources Online (GRO) is your single source for mental, emotional, relational, and spiritual health and wellbeing


Growth Resources Counseling Center first opened its doors in 1990 to help people who were facing personal, relational, or work-related challenges.

 That was 32 years ago now, and we continue to provide professional counseling, psychotherapy, and coaching services to our individual clients.

In addition, we’re in the process of opening up our library of courses (an outgrowth of our private practice) and making them available to you through Growth Resources Online (GRO).
