About Us

Who We Are

Lutheran Counseling Network is a nonprofit organization of dedicated professional psychotherapists providing services since 1981. All LCN counselors have a masters or doctoral degree. Our professional staff observes a strict ethical code of professional conduct.

What We Do

LCN is an extension of the church's ministry to the community. We provide therapy for individuals, couples and families, addressing such areas as depression, anxiety, recovery from trauma, behavioral problems, parenting, sexuality andspirituality.

What We Charge

We charge a standard fee, and insurance companies may reimburse a portion of the fee. Many of our clients pay a subsidized fee adjusted according to family income. This is made possible by the generous donations of the churches we serve.

Mission Statement

By providing psychotherapy to people in need and education for congregations and pastors, Lutheran Counseling Network is an instrument of God’s grace which strengthens and brings healing to individuals, couples and families so that they might in turn be instruments of God’s grace.

Values

  • Quality: LCN staff are people of character, who are professionally trained clinicians with emotional maturity, integrity, and a commitment to growing in their own Christian faith.
  • Church: Lutheran Counseling Network is an affiliated Social Ministry Organization of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. We value being a part of the church’s ministry of God’s love in Jesus Christ which reconciles alienated people to each other.
  • Accessibility: We value professional decisions and practices that enable clients to access our ministry easily, through our network of referral sources, and through our varied schedules, multiple locations and adjusted fee schedule. We are committed to ministry to all persons, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, disability, education or faith, and across the spectrum of income levels.
  • Service: We value our sense of call or service expressed through our giving of our “self” in the practice of therapy, and by being integrated, by way of physical presence.
