Summer & Fall Groups at Anchorpoint

Anchorpoint Counseling Ministry will be running a number of educational and therapeutic groups this summer and fall.    Some of our groups are free, and all have scholarships available. We will not turn anyone away due to financial circumstances.

Anchorpoint’s groups reach a variety of ages and issues experienced. Some groups offered are for those struggling with mental health difficulties. Other groups will be workshops for the average individual with an interest in a particular area.
