What Life Problems Can Christian Counseling Help With?

The Christian counselors at Thriveworks Alexandria, VA (Franconia) will look at your unique needs before designing your treatment plan. That said, they will incorporate effective counseling techniques as well as your Christian faith and scripture into your Christian counseling experience. Here are a few problems a Christian counselor can help you address:

  1. Mental illness, such as depression: Depression is ruthless. In addition to despair, depression can come with a loss of interest in once beloved activities, changes in weight and appetite, sleep disturbances, lack of motivation, and other harmful symptoms. The good news that we can offer is that a Christian counselor can help you to work through your depression (or another mental illness) and learn to better manage it.
  2. Self-esteem: Another common problem that many of us deal with is a low self-esteem. Self-esteem refers to the sense of value one sees in him or herself. When an individual has a low self-esteem, they’re at a heightened risk of entering a depressive state, isolating themselves from others, and suffering in other ways too. Therefore, it’s important to seek out self-esteem help as soon as possible. A Christian counselor at Thriveworks Alexandria (Franconia) can help you to look at why you have a low self-esteem and how you can build that back up.
  3. Relationship issues: We all struggle with relationship issues, whether they are with our significant other, family members, or friends. These issues can range from parenting problems to jealousy, infidelity, financial disagreements, or mere differences in opinion. In any case, it can be difficult to navigate these challenges and keep your relationships intact. If you need help working through a relationship issue, the Christian counselors at Thriveworks Alexandria (Franconia) have got you covered.

Do these common life issues sound all too familiar to you? If you are struggling with an item on this list or another challenge altogether, you should not feel ashamed. Remember: God is always there. And we’re always here for you, too. You should be proud of your strength in reaching out for the help that will put you back on the right path.

patient parent

Lolita is a very thoughtful therapist. She also has a good understanding of children as she worked with my son at the ages of 15 & 16. She was an advocate for him, and she was eager to work with him in goal-setting, which my husband and I appreciate very much. We may continue to seek our her assistance in the future should our needs change. Thank you for all of your help.

Can’t thank you enough

★★★★★
I was skeptical at first to open up to a complete stranger and express my problems and thoughts but Gelila made me feel completely comfortable within the first couple of sessions. She is very kind, a good listener, and extremely helpful. I have been talking to her for a couple of months and I feel instantly relieved of stress after our sessions. I can’t thank her enough for helping me out through tough times.

Rebecca Fry is amazing

★★★★★
Rebecca has been my therapist for almost a decade and I can not recommend her enough. She is thoughtful and caring, while also great at challenging and giving direct recommendations on how to deal with issues. She even stayed with me after I moved out of the area and worked to figure out a remote option. She has worked with me through many issues and remained a valuable resource I can rely on.

Rebecca is incredible!

★★★★★
I can't speak highly enough of Rebecca Fry - she is compassionate, patient, attentive, and encouraging. She is celebratory of growth and honest in her feedback without ever being critical or judgmental. For someone who was fearful of entering therapy, she embraced me with warmth and understanding. She has helped me tremendously by equipping me with practical coping mechanisms that are manageable and realistic but challenge unhealthy habits when necessary. On top of her professionalism - Rebecca is so easy to relate to and never makes me feel like I have anything to be ashamed of. She cares deeply for her patients and wants to help them lead healthier lives. She is an absolute treasure and I can't recommend her highly enough!!
