Pastoral Counseling


About Oasis

Oasis is a place of peace and safety in the midst of trouble or difficulty. Rhonda Failoni's education, experience and heart led her to a career in Pastoral Counseling. She desires to walk alongside those looking for a refuge from their struggles.

This ministry is an integrated approach that combines God's truth from scripture and counseling techniques.

“The essence of pastoral counseling is helping troubled people bring their woundedness, struggles, doubts, and anxieties into dynamic healing contact with the God who is known by his people as the wonderful counselor." David Benner

Why Pastoral Counseling?

A Pastoral Counselor helps people grow, problem solve and heal through exploring God's perspective on an issue and applying biblical principles, the power of God and the support of the church to a given need.

Pastoral Counseling differs from clinical counseling in that clinical counseling relies on psychological testing and other therapies.

Who Can Benefit?

Everyone has a story to tell and sometimes we find ourselves stuck in our journey. Finding a safe place to tell one's story is vital for writing the next chapter.

Do you need a place of refuge from the effects of fear, worries, stress, emotional hurt, forgiveness and anger? Are you struggling with guilt, fear, regret, divorce, retirement, grief or loss? Are you part of a military family, a missionary, or an expat in transition? Oasis is a place to experience grace in the midst of life circumstances, so that one can begin to find healing and hope again.

No matter what season of life you find yourself in, you may need some help along the way.
