"To give light to those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death, To guide our feet into the way of peace." Luke 1:79
DO YOU STRUGGLE WITH YOUR FAITH?
Do you struggle with making decisions that align with your spiritual values? Are there times when you feel confused on what you are doing and what you believe God wants you to do?
Are you experiencing difficulty adhering to biblical scripture in your marriage? Have you been questioning your faith and don't know what to do about it? Do you find it difficult to navigate the differences between your spiritual beliefs and others? Are you struggling with your past hurts and understanding how to let them go to move forward?
Many people, like yourself, struggle in learning how to navigate their lives that may or may not be incongruent with their spiritual or religious beliefs. Sometimes we need someone to help guide us with our thought process and re-align to our core beliefs. However, it may be more complex than that and you may feel lost in the process. You may be trying to live your life in accordance with your spiritual or religious beliefs, but at times you question if your actions will be acceptable with God.
Christian Counseling is a specialized form of counseling that integrates Christian faith and biblical principles with psychological techniques and theories. Christian counseling acknowledges the importance of spirituality and faith in the therapeutic process. Christian counseling recognizes the importance of healthy and loving relationships.
Christian counseling look to eternity sharing the hope that there is life after death. Life challenges and stressors can hurt you deeply, yet there will be everlasting peace in Heaven. Through suffering, you can find comfort in Jesus Christ and His love for you. Christian counseling looks for the root of unhealthy coping strategies and behaviors. Our counselors communicate to their clients that, by the cross, they are already forgiven for the sins that are the root of every problem in life, and work together with you from there.

Addressing Your Concerns about Christian Counseling
WHAT IF MY THERAPIST DOES NOT UNDERSTAND MY RELIGION?
Yes, of course it would be great if your therapist understands the culture, doctrine, and theology within your religion. Our therapists are here to listen to your story and gain a deeper understanding of your religious and spiritual experiences. They are prepared to learn and in conjunction with learning from you, they will do their own research to become more immersed in your religion.
I LIKE THE IDEA OF CHRISTIAN COUNSELING, BUT NOT SURE HOW IT CAN HELP ME WITH MY PROBLEMS?
In Christian counseling, faith plays an important role in the healing process. When you are in the midst of your troubles, challenges, and life events like death of a loved one or pet, the loss of a job, declining health, financial problems, relationship issues, a strong and resilience faith may be what is missing from your life. The ultimate goal of Christian counseling is to help Christians identify behaviors that are inconsistent with God's teachings, so they can become more accepting of God's will, even when it's not your will. Our Christian counselors believe that the Bible is the ultimate guide on how Christians should think and behave.
WILL THE THERAPIST IMPOSE THEIR RELIGIOUS BELIEFS ON ME?
Definitely not. Our team of counselors understand that everyone has their own unique spiritual experiences and journey. They are ready to walk alongside your journey without imposing their values onto you. They will be your sounding board while you process your situation and help you live your life accordance with your own spiritual values and beliefs.
