Cornerstone Christian Counseling in Kalamazoo, Michigan

Barry J. Brigham, MA, LLP, LPC

Barry J. Brigham, MA, LLP, LPCIt is my belief that people need truth to be emotionally and spiritually healthy.  The Bible is the primary source of truth and directs the counseling services that I provide.  My hope is that the loving compassion of Christ is evident in my counsel, whether I am visiting with a troubled married couple or an 8 year-old child who has been the victim of abuse.  The identified desire of the client is the target of the counseling sessions and my goal to help each individual, couple or family experience freedom.
