Work with a Christian Counselor in Cumming, GA—Christian Counselors and Therapists

When times get tough, we often feel lost and struggle to find something to grasp onto to pull ourselves out of the rut. For those who practice building strong Christian values, it can be powerful to turn to your fellow worshipers for the support and guidance you need. Christianity can provide someone with happiness, fulfillment, and stability. However, sometimes the challenges we face can be harder to tackle on our own than we think.

Faith is unseen but felt, faith is strength when we feel we have none, faith is hope when all seems lost. –Catherine Pulsifer

At Thriveworks Cumming Counseling, we believe that therapy should have a holistic approach to care, taking the mind, body, and spirit into consideration. That’s why we offer Christian counseling! We have ministry-professional counselors that practice with a biblical foundation. This service combines your faith and the principles of counseling to improve your overall mental health and relationships while also building a stronger bond with you and God. To schedule an appointment with one of our counselors, call our office at (770) 224-7008 or book online.

Can Christian Counseling Help Me?

During difficult times, it is important that we turn to God to ask for support and guidance. Although, that does not mean that we can’t turn to counseling when we need a little extra help. Asking for help does not make you or your faith weak. Turning to Christian counseling will help you build a stronger relationship with yourself and God in a judgment-free zone.

Our Thriveworks Cumming Christian counselors can help you with many different regions of life. They are here to assist you with working towards an overall better state of being in your personal life, in turn creating stronger bonds with your most important relationships.

Whatever journey you are facing, our highly trained therapists can give you the tools necessary to work through your problems with a caring, Christian approach. Our goal is to help our clients become more connected with themselves through Christ. Trust that there is no shame in seeking professional help and there’s no need to worry about feeling rejected for “not having enough faith.” Every person, including devout Christians, struggle with these issues and need some guidance along the way.

How Does Christian Counseling Work?

Turning to one’s Christian faith or spirituality has proven to help them overcome obstacles in their life. Here at Thriveworks Cumming Counseling, we believe that it is important to consider one’s faith and religion when designing a unique treatment plan for them. Our Christian coaches will take your faith, wants, and needs into consideration when crafting the best approach for your care. They are not only experienced but have the skill set necessary to combine your faith with the principles of psychology. Your counselor will use a combination of:

  1. Prayer
  2. Biblical teachings
  3. Education and support
  4. Therapeutic techniques to help you make decisions
  5. Coping mechanisms for serious life events

The use of the combination of these areas will help you build up your spiritual and mental health. Working with our Christian counselors will help deepen your connection in your faith, morals, and values. If you are struggling and you are of the Christian faith, consider working with one of our Christian coaches at Thriveworks Cumming Counseling. Studies show that those who practice a strong religious faith live happier and longer than others. This is just another reason why we offer Christian Counseling opportunities here. We want you to know just how devoted we are to helping you live a happy and healthy life.

Family Saver

★★★★★
Every family goes through seasons were they may need help in navigating challenging emotional or stressful situations. Depending on the circumstances, thinking you can handle it on your own may prove to be too much and not the right approach. Our family experienced one of these seasons and the team at Thrivewoks offered on point guidance and perspective that our family was not able to see from the middle of the storm. Teenage years present many emotional and developmental changes that can often require outside the family support. Dr. Tim Giannoni and Counselor Tony Reynolds provide prompt, compassionate and effective care for our teenager and whole family. The storm is clearing largely due to techniques and consistent meetings that allow our teenager to have his place to go to talk and work through the many emotional peaks and valleys that come with these years of life. We cannot thank our team at Thriveworks enough for caring for our son and family!!!

Raising a teenage boy

★★★★★
The ups and downs of raising a teenage boy can feel very daunting at times. Although most days are fine, others can be quite challenging, and it's comforting to know that Dr. Giannoni is there to help and offer support. Our experience with Thriveworks has been excellent, and we are happy to offer our highest review and recommendation for anyone looking to make parenting just a bit easier. Thank you for your continued support.

Prospective and Compassion.

★★★★★
I cannot express how much Dr. Wilson helped me when I was at a very low point in my life. Her compassion and perspective brought insight that helped me through that tough period in my life. Her education and training enabled her to catch important warning signs that a lesser trained therapist might have missed. Today I'm in a much better place largely due to her counseling on how to deal with life issues.
