The goal of Christian counselors is to use faith-based principles and psychological instruction to help people better manage and/or resolve any issues in their lives. More specifically, these mental health professionals not only assess, diagnose, and treat mental illnesses, they also teach clients coping skills, so they can better adjust to any changes that may occur in their lives.
The truth is, when you are in the midst of troubling life events like the death of a loved one or pet, the loss of a job, declining health, financial problems, and/or relationship issues, a strong and resilient faith may be just what is missing from your life.
Christian counseling prioritizes your faith as an important part of the healing process. Christian counseling can address many issues that may arise in your life, and in working with a faith-based therapist, you can heal while also turning towards your faith in a time of need. In therapy, you will work with your therapist on identifying the problems that you’d like to address and discussing your desired outcomes.
