The Bible provides guiding principles, encouragement, wisdom, and an array of beneficial resources which God has designed for our benefit and His glory. Our counseling approach addresses the challenges we face from a perspective of hope and assurance that God’s Word will guide us to fulfillment.

We provide counseling for individuals and couples. Because the Bible addresses every human need, we can help assist individuals struggling with family, marriage, parenting, addictions, personal struggles, fear, anger, grief, relationships problems, etc.

Intent Listening

We encourage the clients to speak their mind in an appropriate fashion and to discuss their thoughts, anxieties, resentments, and fears so that your counselor will have a clear understanding of the central problems.

Team Counseling

There are times when a situation may call for a team approach. In this event, we may have more than one counselor involved in a session. Counselors share insights and opinions with one another which pertain to the specific case. Team counseling can be especially helpful in addressing marriage issues.

Assignments

Clients make more rapid progress when they are required to study or to perform specific informational or behavioral assignments which pertain to their specific problem. We tailor these assignments to the individual clients and their circumstance.

Accountability

We are interested in individuals learning how to experience the peace and joy that result from a walk of obedience to God’s Word, and we believe it is important to hold the clients accountable for doing the assignments on schedule. The assignments provide clients with opportunities to work on specific areas.
