ABOUT US

Bakersfield is a diverse, warm and charitable community. We are also a community with many working lower income people and families, some who are barely getting by. When difficulty comes their way, counseling is a valuable resource they simply cannot afford.

At Wellspring, counseling services are provided on a household income basis. Also, many services and groups are provided for through donor scholarship or from Wellspring directly. It is our heart to come along side of people with the care and support they desire, regardless of financial limitations.

As Christian Counselors, the Wellspring counseling staff are all trained Biblical ministers. We also look to the findings and science of psychology to help us understand our clients and their needs, as well as develop effective counseling tools.

We are not psychotherapists.
