Oaks Counseling is nonprofit organization focused on bringing emotional support to cross-cultural humanitarian aid workers and missionaries by providing counseling, debriefing and intensives during furloughs and home assignments. While a worker is on a field 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 ministry provided by trained pastoral counselors and lay leaders. It is our desire to see missionaries abundantly supported on the field to continue the call on them to minister God's love in the nations.
