Welcome to Renew

Renew Christian Counseling Professionals is dedicated to providing compassionate, professional Christian counseling in the greater Cincinnati area. We are committed to walking with you on your journey towards healing and wholeness.

How we can help

Life can be hard, and we all need a little help sometimes! Talking with a therapist can help foster growth and healing in many ways. At Renew, we strive to help our clients:

Untangle complicated emotions and hurt

Gain insight into how to set healthy boundaries in relationships

Get “unstuck” and heal from the past

Manage stress and intense emotions such as depression, anxiety and intrusive, overwhelming thoughts

Cope with difficult situations and emotions

Identify and challenge unhelpful “stuck points” and patterns of self-talk

Clarify and begin working towards personal, relational and emotional goals

As a faith-based counseling center, we seek to meet each client where they are in their spiritual journey and walk gently and humbly with them through their trials. Our mission is to help clients “be transformed by the renewal of [their] mind” (Romans 12:2)

Notice of Good Faith Estimate:
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical and mental health care will cost. Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy services. You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychotherapy services. You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service. If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises.
