I suppose this is nothing new. Saint Paul tells us, “We know that the whole creation has been groaning in labor pains until now" (Romans 8). Tolstoy puts it this way: "Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way" (Anna Karenina). Even Woody Allen says, "To love is to suffer" (Love and Death).

No matter how you describe it, many questions follow: Where is sympathy and comfort when I cry out for help? Is my pain shared by another, or am I the only one who feels it? Does anyone, even God, understand?

We are the counselors at Ontario Counseling Center and we are on this journey with you. We may not have all the answers, but we both know from experience that suffering is best overcome with the help of another. Rest assured, help is on the way.

At Ontario Counseling Center we view counseling as a means of turning grief and despair into hope and healing. While life sometimes brings disappointment and brokenness, the counselors at Ontario Counseling Center believe this is not the end of the story. Whether you need a listening ear or practical tools to turn life around, we are uniquely trained and qualified to help.

But don't take our word for it. Here what some of our clients have said about the help they received at Ontario Counseling Center:

"We'll never forget what you did for our marriage." - OCC client

"I know I have told you before, but it bears repeating… that you have helped us so much with our marriage and were instrumental in saving it. Without your help, I don’t know if we would still be together." - OCC client

"There for a while I didn’t think we were going to make it. Somewhere along the way, we broke through some of the ice… Now, when I come home from work, I see that she has come back to me… You must have seen something in us that we didn’t see. I’m glad you didn’t give up on us. - OCC client

"My husband and I reconnected… I do not feel alone anymore. - OCC client

We would love for your story to become like theirs...
There is a deep pain that cuts across the heart of humanity. To each man and woman, boy and girl, there is a pain as unique as one’s DNA, captured in an individual experience that cannot in its entirety be shared by another. Yet, there is a universality of suffering that binds us together. Across the lifespan we face a multitude of experiences that leave us wondering where to turn -- grief at the loss of a parent or child, broken relationships and marriages, the discomfort of chronic pain or disability and the financial distress of job loss or underemployment.
