What is Christian Counseling?

Christian Marriage and Family Counseling Salem OregonTo me it means that I am essentially grounded by my faith, and I employ psychological knowledge as it respects or aligns with Biblical principles. I recognize that the source of a client’s difficulties may be oriented either more spiritually or psychologically; prayer, faith, and the application of sound psychological science can all be used in the process of healing and growing. All truth is God’s truth, both in understanding one’s internal as well as external environments. Healing is not simply the elimination of symptoms, but also the strengthening of resilience to the realities of living in a fallen world.

 

Although I use a Christian approach, I am completely non-denominational and offer my services to all who are trying to improve their personal lives and their relationships. I seek to incorporate both pastoral and clinical aspects of the therapeutic process, emphasizing those to which each client best relates. I recognize that while my faith informs and motivates me as a Christian, every client’s convictions and choices are rightfully and personally theirs — and are to be respected. When appropriate, referrals to other agencies or specialists may be provided to promote the best of care for each individual client.
