Our Foundational Philosophy

Part of the Process of
Healing and Reconciliation

We were created to live free of conflict or pain. However, we live in a post-Edenic world in which:
* Illness, death, and grief are normal progressions of life

* Misunderstandings grow into arguments and conflicts. Sometimes relationships terminate.

* We are sinned against — sometimes horribly. And as sinners, we also sin against others.

* Events sometimes take place that shake our confidence in God’s blueprint for our lives.

“‘I know the plans I have for you,’
declares the Lord,
‘plans to give you hope and a future.'”
— Jeremiah 29:11 NIV

Christian Counseling is NOT —
a sermon or lecture
a “guilt trip”
a “quick fix”
“Take two Bible verses
and call me in the morning”

Christian Counseling IS —
* Working together toward agreed-upon goals
* Addressing issues from a perspective rooted in a Biblical world view
* Balancing compassion and grace with truth.
* Inviting God directly into the counseling process.
