Christian Counseling in Franklin MA

How Did Christian Counseling Begin?

The patience and practice of Christian guidance and counseling have been with us for a long time, smoothing over troubled minds and perhaps offering insight and renewal of purpose to our lives. When thinking about the origins of Christian counseling you might consider the following proverb:

The purpose in a man’s heart is like deep water, but a man of understanding will draw it out” – Proverbs 20:5

It makes good sense that through solid counsel we may better understand the path we have before us. If you want to achieve a you that is fully defined by you it can be necessary to speak with someone practiced in the art of listening.

What Are Some Goals of Christian Counseling?

As you might expect, our goals are your goals. Our Christian counselors can offer unique awareness and vision when it comes to helping you achieve your goals. By looking at the world through two very powerful lens; one of Christian moral teachings, and the other of behavioral and emotional psychology, we can paint a fuller picture of who you are. From there, a course of action and organized execution of plan can take place. Let us help you explore the large variety of challenges that can pop up daily.

Here are a host of difficult issues you may be experiencing. If you think some of these are troubling you, you may benefit from Christian counseling and therapy.

  • Overcoming marital challenges
  • New parents; coping with change and new responsibilities
  • Guidance and support in mental health conditions
  • Support in grief and loss; recovering and healing
  • Regaining life; healing from drug and alcohol abuse
  • Fortify your faith and find meaning in your relationship with God

Talking with a Christian counselor or therapist, one-on-one, will help you speak and think at ease when discussing private and complex matters relating to faith and spirituality. Part of a healthy spiritual life is finding common ground with those around you. If your faith is strong then talk about it with someone who can offer pensive and calm advice. Do you feel uncertain or lost? That’s okay, talking to a counselor will spark a sense of shared belief and renewed attention to your mental and spiritual needs.

g process and wait list during these times of Covid. I chose Jane Eagles to work with because I wanted a mature therapist with lots of experience. She was able to tune right into my situation and my goals for the sessions. She raised great questions for me to consider and always took time to reiterate the main takeaways of our time together. I appreciated her wisdom and clarity as well as her sense of humor.

Opened a New World of Healing

I can't speak any more highly of Thriveworks. Mikkah has truly been such an important person in my life since ...Read more

I started coming to therapy. I was skeptical at first, knowing that "the first therapist you see may not be the right 'fit' for you," but I was lucky enough to have immediately clicked with Mikkah. It took a bit of time for me to really open up and start to dig deep in my own emotion, but Mikkah was so patient and made me feel so comfortable. She truly has helped me identify a lot of different things I was feeling, but couldn't understand why. I originally came to therapy for adult ADD, recommended by my PCP, but I used therapy as a healthy outlet to start talking about things I have experienced that has caused my mental clarity to fog. Mikkah has truly been such a savior in my life and I can't express my gratitude I have for her. She is extremely professional but makes me feel so comfortable talking about literally anything - almost like we've been best friends for years, even though I just met her a few short months ago. I am so happy with how my therapy is going and I always leave a session feeling better than how I went in. Thank you Thriveworks and thank you especially to Mikkah! You are incredible!!
