When you suffer mentally, your spiritual self suffers too. As Christians, we look to God and his teachings when life becomes difficult. He gives us strength, guides our happiness, and supports our growth every single day. When you are suffering, you can turn to him and find comfort in his undying love.
“It is God who arms me with strength and keeps my way secure.” –Psalm 18:32

How Can Christian Counseling Help Me? Who Needs It?
Life gets busy and overwhelming. So busy and overwhelming that sometimes we put our faith on the backburner. Ironically, this is when we should lean on our faith to guide us in the right direction. However that is easier said than done. You know just as well as I do that sometimes difficult times can steer us even farther away from our faith than we would like to admit to ourselves.
At Thriveworks Alexandria, our team of Christian counselors understands that you might be going through a hard time and need help reconnecting with your faith as well as tackling any mental health problems you might be experiencing. Our counselors and therapists are well-equipped to help you work through the struggles standing in your way. To be more specific, Christian counseling can help you…
- Better cope with the loss of a loved one
- Work through self-esteem issues
- Understand and manage a mental illness
- Make informed parenting decisions
- Better deal with stress

Should I Pursue Christian Counseling?

If you are of the Christian faith, a Christian counselor might be the right fit for you as they have the professional skills, training, and experience as well as the Christian faith and background to best help you!
Many people feel intimidated or scared about asking for help.
