We believe there is a strong connection between mind, body, and spirit. Therefore, exploring your values and beliefs pertaining to faith and religion can positively impact your mental health.
Nearly 75% of Americans report their approach to life is influenced by their spiritual belief system. For these people, it makes sense to incorporate faith into the therapeutic experience. Faith based counseling combines scientifically proven counseling techniques and modalities with a faith-based foundation. Counselors will take note of cultural norms, religious communities, and overall value systems.
Spiritual beliefs can play an important role in the healing process.
We understand that a person’s belief system can greatly impact their view of important life factors, including topics of values, community, and healing. Ultimately, a person’s values greatly impacts their decision making and behaviors. Through faith based counseling, your counselor will facilitate conversations to help you understand how your faith impacts your overall worldview and mental health. Your counselor can then introduce helpful techniques and interventions, all implemented through a spiritual lens.
We are not here to judge you.
It is not a counselor’s job to determine what religion or value systems a person chooses to adhere to. Your counselor will also never shame you if your actions do not always match your belief system. Instead, we understand that you are the best person to determine how you would like your spiritual beliefs to play a role in your therapeutic experience and we are happy to meet you where you’re at.
What Faith-Based Counseling looks like in practice:
If a client requests faith based counseling, we will do our best to pair you with a counselor who shares your belief system. If there is not a counselor available who shares your beliefs, we are committed to pairing you with a therapist who is educated about your faith and accepts your beliefs to ensure best possible outcomes in therapy. It’s our goal to meet your needs and customize your experience to allow optimal healing and growth. We are here for you!
