In an effort to meet the needs of our community, we have expanded our existing caring ministry to include professional counseling for members of our Grace community with mental health concerns that go beyond what we currently offer. Katinka Rife, LCSW, has come on staff and will be available on a part-time basis for those who are interested in receiving Biblical counseling by a licensed professional. There is no charge for the initial intake session, but for counseling of issues that require several sessions, an honorarium fee of $70 will apply per session. A sliding scale can be arranged for those who indicate a financial need. Interested parties can contact the church office or can contact Katinka directly at 732-245-0661.
BIO: Katinka has been a part of Grace since 1995. She has spent her time raising 3 amazing children, has been a leader in Women’s Ministry, Children’s Ministry and Stephen Ministry. Her heart to serve the people of Grace led her to pursue a Master of Social Work from Monmouth University, obtain her clinical license, and hone her skills in Biblical and Christian counseling.
