It is a faith-based approach to counseling which skillfully integrates the mental health and behavioral sciences into a Christian theological-anthropological vision of man that affirms his needs for faith, spirituality, prayer, morality, love, commitment, meaning and truth.
It is an expression of Jesus' healing ministry. Therefore the counseling experience centers around His Divine Presence and relies on His Divine Power and Grace to aid the person as he grows in spiritual and emotional health.
Today's pressures and stresses can cause us to lose touch with our spiritual center and experience a sense of alienation from God and from ourselves. For this reason our approach emphasizes the value of dealing with the issues and difficulties of life within the context of working toward greater integration with one's spiritual core. This enables a person to discover his deep resources and strengths.
For this reason special attention is given to matters of:
Faith and Spirituality
Questions about the Meaning of Life
Counseling services offered from this perspective address:
- Abuse (physical, emotional, sexual)
