About Discovery

Discovery was founded in 2002 with a mission of partnering with local churches to provide professional, faith-based counseling to our community. To accomplish this, we forged strategic partnerships with local churches and ministries.

Our unique relationships with churches and ministries of Central Florida allow us to also provide a spiritual emphasis in our counseling.  Throughout the counseling process, we encourage our clients’ spiritual development and growth within the context of healthy Christian community.
