Welcome to His High Places!

We specialize in Christian counseling for those at a crossroads or crisis in life.

Our inspiration:  Why Habakkuk 3:19 is so special to us.

Our Primary Goals:

  • The first goal we hope for you while here at His High Places is that you find a fuller measure of joy in the Lord regardless of your circumstances.
  • Second, we hope that you will become better equipped to overcome the obstacles you face by identifying the root(s) of the issues you bring and giving you tools to take home that enable you to experience spiritual ‘hinds feet.’

Our Methods:

  • Intensives – one or two week intensive visit because it often takes more than hourly sessions with a therapist to experience a breakthrough when you are in crisis.
  • Hourly Sessions – For local clients, we are available on a session by session basis. These sessions are typically 90 minutes long.

Our Focus – Facing the Root Issues of life:

Sexual immorality, anxiety, depression, burn out and infidelity are just some of the many areas for which we have seen healing. Our Christian counseling, restoration and spiritual redirection services have a broad range of techniques that make us uniquely qualified to minister to those looking for spiritual truth as well as those who are at a serious impasse and need the miraculous healing that is required for reconciliation and repairing of relationships.

Our Experience:


We have over thirty years of successful Christian counseling, restoration and spiritual redirection experience and have participated in repairing the breach for over 2,000 clients.  We designed our ministry from real life in order to take life and relationships to higher and God ordained heights.  We have found success in repairing and healing severe woundedness and brokenness, through Christian counseling, restoration and spiritual redirection. We offer time tested spiritual healing through principles adapted from such well respected ministries as Elijah House, Pure Desire, AACC, etc., along with HHP developed concepts leading to real and permanent healing and inner peace.  The majority of those who have come to His High Places are living in victory and still walking out the breakthrough they experienced here.

Our History:

What People Say:

Having the opportunity to be at HHP was one of the greatest blessings in my entire life. Issues that I never realized were affecting my life were dealt with. My life was changed forever more.
30 years ago God gave me the gift of salvation. I have walked around with that unopened gift in my back pocket. This week I was finally able to open that gift and receive the fullness of HIS love. My life has completely changed.

God is moving extraordinarily at HHP. Ignore that twinge of doubt in your mind and call, come. You can experience freedom from that pain, fear and anger that has trapped you. Let the coaches at HHP lead you into embracing the fullness of life God designed and desires for His children.
