ARK offers services from a soundly Christian viewpoint. Our staff is committed to Jesus Christ and His church. We seek to integrate biblical values into our own lives and the work we do with our participants. We incorporate faith in counseling by combining professional techniques and biblical principles, which allows individuals to not just be taught but apply biblical perspectives into their circumstances. We identify and respect your personal beliefs while enhancing your spiritual, emotional, relational, and mental health. Faith-based and Christian counseling can increase your authentic self and connect you to a deeper spiritual meaning in your everyday experience.
We do not require that our participants believe or practice the Christian faith, but it’s important that our participants realize that our staff do. Whatever your personal beliefs are in regard to faith, we will respect and honor those beliefs. We approach matters of any faith with respect and without judgement. All members of our staff are in agreement with our Statement of Faith, which is part of our Bylaws, and members of various churches.
The ARK began in 2014 with two founders, Emma-Linda Ojo-Adebayo and Mariah Popoola. Since then, ARK has been steadily growing, welcoming professionals from a variety of specializations and backgrounds to our team. We’re proud of everyone who dedicates their time and talent to helping in this endeavor!
