Oaks Counseling is nonprofit organization focused on bringing emotional support to cross-cultural humanitarian aid workers and missionaries through clinical counseling, debriefing and intensives during furloughs and home assignments. While a worker is on a cross-cultural assignment, online psychotherapy and critical incident debriefing is available through licensed psychologists, counselors, social workers and MFTs in our network.
Oaks Counseling also cares for the spiritual needs of missionaries through providing independent member-care, pastoral counseling and prayer provided by trained pastoral counselors and lay leaders. It is our desire to see missionaries abundantly supported to continue to minister God's love in the nations.
