Starting Christian counseling

What is Christian counseling?

How does Christian counseling work?

Christian counseling works by focusing on themes of hope and healing through one's faith. At Thriveworks, your Christian counselor will discuss Christian values and relate them to your unique struggles. You can expect to discuss the following with them:

  • Your Christian identity
  • Your relationship with God
  • What the bible says about your current challenges
  • How you can overcome your struggles in a way that aligns with your faith
  • How to channel your religion in a way that helps you heal

Is Christian counseling conducted in person or online?

Christian counseling at Thriveworks is conducted both in person and via Online therapy. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How long does Christian counseling last?

Christian counseling can last for a few weeks, months, or longer. It depends on what challenges the client might be working through, the severity of those challenges, as well as other needs or preferences.

Christian Counseling in Cambridge, MA—Christian Counselors and Therapists

While it might be difficult to admit, there are instances in which sustaining one’s strong Christian values is challenging. If you’re being honest with yourself, you can probably admit this to be true, but it’s still perplexing, nonetheless. I mean, think about it: You devote so much time and energy into building a resilient relationship with God, as well as strong relationships with your loved ones, but sometimes that means moving your personal needs to the wayside. Life becomes so busy, so demanding that you forget to dedicate this important time to your faith.

While other worldviews lead us to sit in the midst of life’s joys, foreseeing the coming sorrows, Christianity empowers its people  to sit in the midst of this world’s sorrows, tasting the coming joy. –Timothy Keller

I had been unable to make an appointment with a therapist for a long time. Everyone had a three month waiting list. I took a chance and made an appointment here. I love Hannah, she’s excellent, and I’m glad I found Thriveworks. It’s too soon for me to weigh in on the additional services Thriveworks offers but it seems good!
