Real life is filled with every kind of moment, from difficult to joyful to mundane. At Chase Oaks, we’re here for all of it. We believe that taking care of one another means taking care of ourselves, too.

Our mental health is just as important as our physical and spiritual wellbeing. That’s why we created "We Get Better Together"—to destigmatize and embrace mental health conversations and resources.



The Watershed Initiative is made up of a group of Christian therapists who are passionate about serving the mental health needs of the local church. Their vision is to empower the church to be the first and best option to access mental health resources. 

We have partnered with them to provide a reliable and trustworthy counseling option. Our partnership provides discounted rates for individuals, couples, and group therapy as well as other benefits. They have a large, diverse group of therapists trained in a range of specialties who can meet your mental health needs.  

Our church believes that caring well for the whole person includes addressing mental health needs. Issues like anxiety, depression, addiction, abuse, and trauma often require more focused and specialized care than what most pastors or lay leaders are trained to provide. Thus, we see partnering with Watershed as a healthy expression of the body of Christ working together. 

Benefits for Chase Oaks Church:

A trustworthy mental health resource, featuring a diverse group of Christian therapists clinically trained in various specialties. 
20% discount off the first 5 sessions of therapy for new, self-pay clients. 
Insurance. Some therapists also take insurance, which may be a better option for you depending on your insurance coverage. When insurance is used, the partnership discounts do not apply.
