Preventive Counseling Options (PCO) has been helping individuals and organizations make successful transitions since 1991.

We deal with many trials throughtout our lifetime.  The key is knowing what to do in order to prevent trials from overwhelming us.

Cancer is the most prominant disease of our time.  It is the most devastating simply because it implies death.  PCO help clients adopt the right attitude needed to handle the trials of life and their journey with cancer.  Your life is not defined by cancer. PCO encourage and empower clients to continue to live their abundant life.

You can choose to continue to live your life or run your business without a plan overlooking the options for success, or you can consult with PCO Counseling.  We know God's Plan for wellness and success.  Our services can help you plan the life you want to live or have the successful organization you want to manage.  PCO is committed to helping adolescents, individuals, couples, families, groups and organizations.  We encourage you to have a positive attitude, have the Hope needed to Persevere, utilizing God's Health Care Plan and your Faith in Him for a lifestyle of Nutrition and Wellness.
It's time to seek your healthy transition from hurt and pain to comfort, healing and a strong relationship with the Healer.

we give life a new meaning!
My philosophy is that God equips us to love and care for others.  It is up to us to accept his calling to become educated, encouraged and empowered to accept His purpose for our life. 

 It stands to reason that  you have visited this site because you have cancer or know someone who has cancer or some form of chronic illness.  You have two distinct options, now that you are here.  You can accept the invitation to become educated, encouraged and empowered to deal with your illness or learn how to help care for a friend or loved one who is ill.
"But it was our pain He took and our diseases were put on Him; while to us He seemed as one diseased, on whom God's punishment had come.  But it was for our sins he was wounded, and for our evil doings He was crushed:  He took the punishment by which we have peace, and by His wounds we are made well."  
(Isaiah 53:4-6)
