Purpose
North Woods Christian Counseling is committed to providing individual, marriage, and family therapy, for the purpose of transforming lives through the love of Christ.

History
North Woods was founded in 2010 by Mark Odland, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and ordained minister. Although it started as a small private practice, by God’s grace, the ministry has continued to steadily grow!  It now employs 6 therapists and 3 support staff, all working together to live out a purpose greater than themselves. Click Here to learn more about our our therapy team.

Foundational Scripture
“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind…” (Romans 12:2)

Values
North Woods Christian Counseling, LLC’s three core values are FAITH, HOPE, and LOVE.
“And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love” (1 Corinthians 13:13).

Giving Back
In gratitude to God for so many blessings, and for each client who has the courage to begin therapy, North Woods Christian Counseling has decided to give back in a different way. In order to live out our mission, and compelled by the love of Christ, we’ve built charitable giving into the fabric of the organization. Beginning July 7, 2015, North Woods began partnering with thousands of others across the world by donating at least 10% of its net income to Feed My Starving Children. Compared to the generosity of many, the donation amount is small.  And yet, considering that only $80.00 feeds a child for an entire year, every bit helps!

While we can’t solve all the worlds problems, we can all make a difference, one child at a time with the resources entrusted to us. We know from Scripture that it’s not so much the size of the donation that matters, but the love behind it… A love that can turn a boy’s small lunch of loaves and fishes into a feast that can feed thousands. God can take a gift given in faith, no matter how small, and multiply it beyond measure! If you would like to experience the joy of giving and join us in fighting hunger in Christ’s name, it’s as simple as clicking on the following link to donate now!
