What is Christian Counseling

Christian counseling is a therapy centering on the disciplines of faith and psychology based on Biblical teaching to provide an approach to mental and emotional health. When turbulent life events and their resulting impact on life occure, integrating and strengthening your faith may be the missing piece in finding proper treatment. A Christian counseling can help you to navigate life’s challenges in ways that respect your faith.

Though we believe that the Bible is the devine and inspired Word of God, ever true and never waivering, we are not here to force any belief on you. Nor is there any attempt to influence denomination choice.

Spirituality extends beyond religious beliefs. Spirituality is a part of everyone’s life as some level, regardless of their religious denomination or lack thereof. It is either the understanding or perhaps the journey to discovery that there is something bigger than ourselves in the universe. Spirituality can be part of anyone’s life, regardless of their religious denomination.

Let us help you in your journey to find true inner peace.
