Oakhouse Counseling meets people in their scariest, most difficult moments.
You can get better. There is hope in your darkness - we will find it together.
We believe that adversity and pain can push us to grow new roots that stabilize us and make us so much stronger. As men and women in the middle of great struggles, we need to remember the longer view of our lives. We will be 'great oaks' and be a safe shelter for others we care about.
Why the Name, 'Oakhouse?'
This poem reflects why we serve people every day.
it continues to inspire us.
"Defeat may serve as well as victory
To shake the soul and let the glory out.
When the great oak is straining in the wind,
The boughs drink in new beauty and the trunk
Sends down a deeper root on the windward side.
Only the soul that knows the mighty grief
Can know the mighty rapture, Sorrows come
To stretch out spaces in the heart for joy."
