Good Counsel, (formerly known as Bear Valley Counseling) began in 1981 as an outreach of Bear Valley Church in Lakewood, Colorado. Its mission stemmed from the belief that the local Church must address current cultural dynamics and the real-life experiences of people in the Church and its surrounding community. Our approach aligns with our Mission and Statement of Faith.
The counseling center incorporated in 1999 with the support of Bear Valley Church who provided office space, support, and encouragement to help the mission of the counseling center grow to reach those in need.
Under the leadership of LuAnn Turner, LCSW, and current Director, Chuck Fallon, LPC, many amazing area counselors, graduates of Colorado Christian University and Denver Seminary, have helped people throughout the years. We are honored to have served along-side them and our current staff, people who are spiritually dedicated and professionally trained to give good, Godly counsel.
Thanks to our many donors, specifically Bear Valley Church and many faithful individuals, we are able to assign reduced rate packages (as they are available) to those in need in our community.
We enjoy a connection with many area churches and Pastors who refer people in their community to Good Counsel. We treat those in our care with grace and integrity, echoing the same Biblical values that they hear and see modeled in their faith community.
