CARE Department

Healthy individuals and strong families are a priority here at Capo Beach Church and that’s why our CARE Department provides pastoral counseling, substance abuse counseling, and individual counseling for children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families. Perhaps you’re ready to address an addiction. Maybe you’d like to work through the challenges you’re facing in your marriage. Or you might have decided to finally talk with someone about the depression or anxiety  you’re facing. We’re here to support, encourage, and equip you with tools for a healthy life and family.

Below you'll find a number of our CARE staff members. Call x219 or contact Vee for more information or to schedule an appointment with one of our CARE Department staff members.
