34 years of integrating biblical truth and psychology

Welcome to GRO

Growth Resources Online (GRO) is your all-in-one source for spiritual, mental, emotional, and relational health and wellbeing

Our private practice, Growth Resources Counseling Center, is now in its 34th year of providing professional counseling, psychotherapy, and coaching services to our individual clients.

But in order to meet an ever-growing need for counseling and coaching from a biblical perspective, we’ve expanded our practice to include online courses.

What this means is that you also now have access to the same effective tools, insights, and strategies that have proven to be successful with hundreds of clients inside our library of courses!
