Work with a Christian Counselor in Chesapeake, VA—Christian Counseling and Therapy

Here at Thriveworks Chesapeake Counseling, we believe that there are many factors that should be taken into account when helping someone in counseling. For example, if one’s religion is an important part of their identity, we think that it should be incorporated into their mental health treatment. That’s why we offer a range of services, including (but not limited to) Christian Counseling.

Faith tells me that no matter what lies ahead of me, God is already there.

Christian Counseling at Thriveworks Chesapeake is often integrative. In other words, our Christian Counselors combine Christian scripture, prayer, and science-backed therapeutic techniques to best help their clients. For example, one session might focus heavily on one’s relationship with God and involve prayer work. In the next session, the client and counselor might talk about one’s Christian faith ever so briefly.

Christianity brings stability, happiness, and strength to our lives. It can lend support during particularly difficult times and make the joyous times that much better. Now, when you do enter those difficult times, it is important that we tune into our faith and trust that God is right there beside us. On the same note, this does not mean that you are too strong for counseling or that counseling is not necessary. In fact, it will instead ready you for the relationship you will build with a Christian Counselor.

What would you say if I told you that you can start living a happier, more successful life today? That’s right, even if you’re struggling with a severe mental health condition or another problem, you can start making changes right now that will enable you to live better. Even in the case of…

  • Addiction

Whatever it is, you can learn to work through your problems with a caring Christian Counselor at Thriveworks Chesapeake, VA. Rest assured, if you choose to work with one of our providers, you do not have to feel shame or guilt for receiving counseling. Unfortunately, many people of faith do feel ashamed to admit that they are experiencing a problem and that they might need some help. And they fear being rejected by their community for “not having enough faith.” But the reality is that every single person, even devout Christians, struggle and need a little bit of help along the way.
