Christian Counseling is profoundly different from Mental Health Counseling. Christian counseling provide psychological support and counseling services to clients, combining theology and spirituality with theories of modern behavioral science. Patients who seek christian counseling counseling are looking for a counselor who understands the importance of their spiritual beliefs.  Christian Counseling applies scripture and prayer; while processing through the crisis of the day or the deep wounds of the past. It explores Jesus’ rich teachings to invest our lives to worship God and love others and ourselves well. The Bible teaches us everyone is born with a desire and an emptiness only God can fill, so I am confident I am not alone regarding these torturous thoughts on the journey to connect with God.

Mark 12:28-31

“Of all the commandments, which is the most important?” “The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.”
