At GateWay of Hope, we provide counseling, coaching, and group support aimed at leading women to discover hope, pursue healing, and live in wholeness. For some, this may mean learning to set healthy boundaries in their lives, or perhaps recovering from the loss of a loved one, while for others it may mean surviving abusive or controlling relationships, or coping with family members with substance or pornography addictions.
Our counseling services are provided by licensed mental health professionals who maintain a focus on the whole person — body, mind and spirit. Our counselors work from a Christian perspective. For those who request it, we integrate God and faith into the counseling process, with a focus on faith and deepening your relationship with God.
We offer three types of Counseling:
- Mental Health Counseling for women who struggle with mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, PTSD or dissociation.
- Personal Growth Counseling for those who want help with boundaries, decision-making, relationships or loss and grief.
- Spiritual Formation Counseling is designed for women who want to focus on their relationship with God and beliefs about God, or women who have struggled with spiritual abuse or negative experiences in the church.
GateWay of Hope Coaching offers women the chance to work one-on-one with professional coaches who can help them make positive changes in their lives. Through Coaching, our clients gain a supportive, encouraging partner who can help them be accountable for and focused on a plan for moving forward.

FALL 2017 GROUPS
GateWay Groups provide women with the immeasurable comfort of talking with others facing the same issues in a safe, confidential environment. We understand that connecting with others is key to healing and coping, so we offer groups to help women in many circumstances:
Restoring Hope After Betrayal meets weekly on Monday evenings to help women talk through and learn coping strategies for this very difficult and highly confidential situation. For women whose husbands are sex addicts, porn watchers and/or having affairs. This group helps women form a supportive bond so they no longer feel alone in this difficult and painful situation. We offer two groups: Phase 1 for women who are just discovering or just admitting to their husbands’ addictions. Phase 2 for women who have journeyed together through Phase 1 and are moving to the next levels of personal growth. Monday evenings – weekly. Call Amy for more information at 913.393.GATE (4283).
Grief Recovery Program – Healing from Loss. This group helps women deal with any type of loss and gives them permission to grieve in a healthy and safe environment. There are more than 40 types of loss – from the death of a loved one to major financial changes – that produce the range of emotions known as grief. The Grief Recovery Method ® Outreach Program offered at GateWay by Crossroads Hospice, helps participants create a plan to learn how losses affect them and move toward healing through new actions. It provides a safe environment for participants to discover and complete what was left emotionally unfinished due to a death, a divorce, or other major loss. A trained and certified moderator leads each session and will give you healthy tools for grieving and a safe place to share their grief. New group begins Tuesday, September 12, 2017 6 pm.
Boundaries – When to Say YES, When to say NO to take control of your life. Using the best selling book by Dr. Henry Cloud & Dr. John Townsend you will learn that having clear boundaries is essential to a healthy, balanced lifestyle. A boundary is a personal property line that marks those things for which we are responsible. In other words, boundaries define who we are and who we are not. Join us for this 8 week book study where you will learn how to improve YOUR personal boundaries. New group begins Friday, October 20, 2017 from 11:30 am – 1:00 pm.
