OUR CHRISTIAN COUNSELING PHILOSOPHY AND
HOW IT MAY DIFFER FROM OTHER COUNSELING SERVICES
Christian Counseling approaches human problems from the perspective that only Christ can fully heal the deepest hurts.
Our goal is always to help our clients find God's peace of heart and mind for themselves as individuals, and then to help them build a marriage that will bring personal fulfillment, present a good model for the children and bring glory to God. We address many of the same issues and use many of the same methods used by traditional counselors such as psycho dynamic, behavioral, cognitive, inner-child, socio-cultural, etc., however we add the spiritual dynamics generatedf from a solid biblical foundation.
We believe the Holy Spirit is really "The Counselor," and that God uses human counselors to help individuals, hear for themselves, the voice of the Holy Spirit. The human counselor is the "watchman" who opens the gate so the sheep can hear the voice of the Good Shepherd. (John 10:3)
We believe that personal happiness and fulfillment comes not from pursuing one's own self-interests, but from pursuing God's will for one's life. This can be discovered as one develops a personal relationship with Christ as directed by Scripture and realized through the Holy Spirit. The role of the Christian Counselor is to be an instrument in the hand of God to help facilitate this process
In order to define the issues needing attention we may use a relationship assessment instrument to help define areas of strength as well as areas needing focused attention. There is an additional cost of $35 for each assessment, however, the results of these assessments help to eliminate early discovery sessions thus reducing the number of sessions required overall TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT toTo make an appointment call (845) 561-9498.
