"I admit I refer to many different counselors depending on the needs of the patient.

I prefer to use Upward Call, however, because of their holistic approach. They use prayer, Scripture and church involvement as part of the healing plan. 

The counselors at Upward Call are faithful      to use their counseling skills to foster the emotional and spiritual wellness

of my patients. For that, they have earned

my loyalty."

"A year has passed since my last attempt at suicide. It has been a challenging year. If it had not been for Upward Call, I would not be here. Your kindness, compassion, sensitivity, understanding, and zeal for helping another hurting person achieve healing is amazing!    I am grateful that I can enjoy life with no more desire to end mine. Your help in my healing is what has also helped me with my walk with the Lord. I am much more able        to understand God’s goodness and workings in me...may you be blessed always!”


 - Elizabeth, Upward Call Client
