Who we are

The mission of the Calvary Counseling Center is to offer Christ-centered counseling and eternal hope to the broken-hearted, homes, marriages, and families and to empower the same to seek and achieve the highest potential available in and through Christ. The authority of the Word of God, the spiritual essence of our church family and our love for the lost world are our foundations. We are professionally and spiritually committed to serve those sent to us by the Lord with Christian dedication, integrity and compassion.

The Calvary Counseling Center is a place where you can receive Biblical counseling. Dr. Ahia, along with the other counselors that work with him, believe that the Word of God is the complete and sufficient basis for bringing rest to those who are weary and burdened with spiritual, emotional, personal and professional problems/issues.
