Broward County Christian Counseling—Counselors and Therapists in Fort Lauderdale, FL

Sometimes, practicing strong Christian values can be hard. It seems like a strange statement doesn’t it? Think about it: You work so hard on growing your relationship with God and those around you, that sometimes you forget to focus on your internal relationship with yourself. Life can get so busy that finding time for yourself seems impossible. It’s easy to lose sight of yourself in today’s busy society.

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

Could I Benefit from Christian Counseling?

When seeking help, it’s common to feel uneasy and nervous to face judgment or shame. However, it’s important to recognize that counseling is a safe, judgement-free zone to come and talk through your issues. Asking for help does not mean your relationship with God has failed; in fact, it has the ability to bring you even closer to Him. It shows your dedication to your faith, and that’s something to be proud of.

At Thriveworks Fort Lauderdale, our Christian counselors are prepared to help you with many different areas of life. Whether it’s your personal life, your career, or your relationships, our Christian counselors have you covered. They can assist with…

  • Relationship issues

Whatever is causing you trouble, the Christian counselors at Thriveworks Fort Lauderdale can provide you the guidance you long for.

What Should I Expect from a Christian Counseling Session?

Christian counseling is similar to a normal counseling session. Where it differs is with a Christian counselor; they understand your desire to walk with Christ and your longing to draw near to Him when times get rough. When speaking with a fellow Christian, you can find relief in your similarities and life choices. During a Christian counseling session, you can expect your therapist to combine Christian practices with the principles of psychology to create the ideal treatment plan for you. In Christian counseling, scripture, prayer, and biblical lessons will help you on your journey to finding relief.

It’s important to note that the goal of Christian counseling is not to condemn you for your wrongdoings or sins you aren’t proud of. The goal is to work through these obstacles to create a greater sense of fulfilment, improve your relationships, and overall become a better version of you.
