Northshore Community Church

You're not alone. Help starts here.

Life can be hard, but you don't have to do it alone. We all experience seasons of challenge, relational upsets, or sorrow. Whatever the circumstances, Northshore offers help to get you through difficult seasons, or if you just want to grow. We welcome you to explore our current groups, one-to-one helps, and other resources. Our desire is to assist you in navigating painful seasons, getting unstuck, and moving toward joy and freedom.

Ways We Help

Group Support

Northshore offers a number of support and recovery groups to provide care and help you navigate life. These are safe, confidential places of care which can be powerful as you navigate relationships, seek to find comfort, and grow. During this season, we've moved our groups online. Check out the groups currently being offered below.

One-to-One Care

Sometimes we benefit from the help of a person who walks with us in our hard season. Northshore has one-to-one care people available to meet with you during a season of difficulty in your life. This is confidential care at an individual level. For more information, contact us at 425-216-4435.

Counselors and other Professional Helps

Counseling can be helpful when life is going well but you want help examining your heart and mind for blind spots and opportunities for growth. You can also begin counseling if you notice a cycle of deterioration or suffering that you need help navigating. Some experiences in our lives call for a higher level of care, and using specialized or trained professionals can bring helpful insight and support. If you are seeking the help of counselors, psychiatrists, or other professionals and are looking for possible options, please contact us.

RECOVERY & SUPPORT FAQ'S

When should I go to counseling?

You can see a counselor or other mental health professional just like you see a physician for your physical health: for occasional check-ups, or more regularly during a less healthy season.

Shouldn’t I be able to deal with my problems through friends and family or by reading my Bible?

There are multiple avenues that God uses for support and healing when we suffer. Healthy relationships and knowing God through the Scriptures are necessities for care, change and growth.

When it comes to mental health, we believe that it is wise and good to seek those who are trained and skilled in this specific work. God has gifted and called certain individuals to advance His kingdom through this effort.
