Through integrating our faith and clinical training, we can offer biblically sound and psychologically skilled approaches to life’s struggles. Christian counseling must be “Christ-centered, biblically-based, and Spirit-filled to the glory of God and for the blessing and healing of His people. Christian counseling should also be characterized by agape or Christlike love that is the fruit of the Holy Spirit.”
All our therapists are Christian and have received specialized training to help you improve your marriage, address issues with your teens, free men and women of sexual addiction issues, depression, anger management, and other mental health issues that you may face.
The fundamental difference between secular and Christian counseling is Jesus. For the greatest gift of Christian counseling is Jesus Christ. He is Savior of all who will believe in Him, trusting in Him alone for the forgiveness of their sins and the restoration of their souls. Jesus is also the One who cleanses us from all the filth and stains left by those who have hurt us.
Real meaning and real hope are found in Jesus and it is to Him we look as we begin the restoration process in whatever issue we may confront. Ultimately, the highest end of Christian counseling is to assist you in establishing a deeper and growing satisfaction in all that Christ is for you, in order that you would get the joy, and God would get the glory, forever.
In Christian counseling, you get to be prayed for and have the Bible helpfully applied to your issues in Christian counseling. This is a tangible part of recognizing that long-term solutions and real healing are dependent upon, and a gift from, God.
To begin, your counselor will spend time visiting with you to thoroughly understand the situation you are facing. Each counselor may approach this differently – and may include discussing your family of origin, core beliefs, and your spiritual life. It is common for individuals to be unaware of the root of the problem because of being focused on the symptoms.
Your counselor will approach your concerns and situation in a way that is non-judgmental, safe and solution focused. Their goal is to focus on how to make your life more meaningful and enjoyable.
Above all, God is at the center of our counseling sessions.
For clients with strong spiritual beliefs who want those beliefs to be incorporated into their counseling experience, a counselor who shares the client’s same worldview is very important. This is important because spiritual beliefs often address some of the same issues that therapists address during counseling, such as emotions and patterns of thinking, behaving, and relating to one another.
