COUNSELING

Now scheduling appointments in-person and online.

Faith plays an important role in helping many of our clients thrive.

Searching for the right counselor can be hard to do alone. It’s important to many people to find a skilled therapist who is also faith friendly. Many of our ThrivePointe counselors have specific expertise in offering Christian-focused counseling for individuals, marriages, teens, and childrenIf you desire, we can support the integration of your faith values and practices into your treatment. We welcome clients from all spiritual and religious backgrounds. 

Some Christian clients want spiritual disciplines like prayer and scripture reading integrated openly in sessions. Others feel assured just to know that their Christian beliefs and worldview are respected as they share about their struggles. We welcome open dialogue with you about your preferences for how faith plays a role in helping you thrive.

Finding Your Best Balance: Psychology and Faith

The Christian faith and effective treatments rooted in psychology and neuroscience research are quite complementary!

Here are just a few of the principles in alignment with the Christian faith:

Attachment Theory

  • We need relationships that provide steady and constant love and belonging (secure base) and a safe place to land in times of stress, failure, and fear (safe haven).
  • Identity is formed in relationship to close others.
  • Safety is threatened by loss and disconnection. Isolation is traumatizing!
  • Love heals and connection with others is critical for us to thrive!

Cognitive Behavioral Theory

  • Our experience and interpretation of a situation is shaped by our thoughts, feelings, and behavior.
  • These beliefs and self-talk have a powerful impact on our emotions, physical sensations, reactions, and choices… and we have the ability to set our thoughts on what is helpful and good!
  • Our behaviors will also have an impact on feelings and thoughts. What we do shapes our beliefs, attitude, and direction.

Acceptance and Commitment Theory

  • Creating a meaningful life, while accepting that pain is an inevitable part of life.
  • Emphasizes meaning in suffering, forgiveness, awareness of self (mindfulness), values driven living, acceptance, and gratitude.

We celebrate with our clients as they make progress that is a reflection of the spiritual transformation they seek. It is such a joy to support clients on this journey and process the experience in a way that enhances joy, meaning, and connection to the deeper beliefs and values driving clients toward growth.

In Christian counseling, we can help you thrive in your faith while working through your concerns.

Your therapist will walk along side you, working with your values, to help you accomplish your goals. You can draw strength from the acceptance, support, and gentle challenge you experience in the counseling relationship. You will also work together to develop a clear path towards change with treatments that are proven to work. Take a look at the types of issues we can help you address.
