Christian Counseling in Manassas, VA—Counselors and Therapists

Having strong faith and upholding Christian values can oftentimes be difficult. Why is that? Imagine: You practice good faith daily, always remember to pray before a meal or when you go to bed, and when times get difficult, you easily come up with a plan of action by listening to God. If only it was that easy! Life gets busy and sometimes you forget to spend alone time with your faith to reconnect. That’s okay though, you are not alone.

Every day you need to get a full dose of the Word and meditate on scripture, and if you discipline yourself and remain consistent, your faith will grow and mature, and remember that God, the Word, and your faith is a recipe for success. – Stephanie Williams

When you start to waiver from your spiritual path, whether it be from lack of time or struggling with something in your personal life, it’s important to remember that it is never too late to pick up where you left off. In times of need, crisis, or life changes, looking to God for help is a large part of Christianity. Luckily, Thriveworks Manassas Counseling offers Christian counseling services to help you along your journey with Christ and through times of need. If you are ready to strengthen your relationship with God and make meaningful progress with your mental wellbeing, call (571) 589-3907 to schedule an appointment with one of our Christian coaches.  

How Does Christian Counseling Work?

Much like traditional counseling or therapy, Christian counseling aims to support you through any mental health challenges you may be facing. However, much like the name implies, working with a Christian counselor means that you will work with someone who shares your same desire to walk with Christ, grow your faith, and turn to Him when times get tough.

During your session with a Christian coach, a series of assessments will be taken to better understand what your needs, goals, and concerns are. Your counselor will then use the assessment to come up with a unique plan of action that is specific to what you would like to achieve. Additionally, they will combine the practices of Christianity and the principles of psychology for a holistic approach to care. Here at Thriveworks Manassas Counseling, we understand how important it is to not just treat the person, but the mind and spirit as well.

When you are ready to start working with a Christian counselor in Prince William County, a variety of methods may be used including:

  1. Reading scripture: To practice good Christianity, it is important to understand and learn from the lessons presented to us in the bible. During your sessions with a counselor, you may read different scriptures and learn how to imply the lessons to the challenges you are facing in your personal life.
  2. Prayer: It is essential to use prayer in your daily life. Your coach will help guide you during prayer and give you the tools to better craft how you speak to God.
  3. Therapeutic tools: We can only grow so much in our faith when our mental health isn’t at its best. That’s why our counselors will work with you to give you the skillset you need to overcome your challenges in life. These tools may include how to manage stress, how to communicate better, and how to ask for help from your family, friends, and church when you need it.

There are so many different ways a Christian counselor can help you during your sessions aside from these three. As we mentioned before, your time with us will be uniquely crafted to meet your needs on a level that you can understand and relate to. Our goal is to help you strengthen your faith, however it best works for you.

Am I a Good Candidate for Christian Coaching?

Consider these questions: Do you wish your faith was stronger? Do you feel like you don’t know how to communicate with God? Are you struggling with something in your personal life that you need help with? If you answered yes to any of these questions, or feel like you can relate to these feelings, you may greatly benefit from Christian counseling. We can help you through many different areas including:

  • Marital or relationship issues
  • Grief and loss
  • Mental health problems such as anxiety, depression, OCD (Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder), and more
  • Feeling lost in your spiritual journey
  • Insomnia and other sleep disorders
  • Low self-esteem
  • Poor communication skills
  • Prayer guidance
  • Substance abuse and addiction
  • Unhappiness with your career

These are just a few of the areas we can help. There are so many different challenges we face through life so we must remember we don’t have to do it alone. Even if you are not sure of what the root of your concerns are, Thriveworks Manassas Counseling can help you identify those issues and help you overcome them alongside Christ.

Barbara Darby, LPC

Barbara Darby is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Virginia and holds a Masters of Science in Psychology from Nova Southeastern University. I have over 16 years of counseling experience working with adolescents, adults, couples, and families. I approach therapy using methods and techniques from Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Family Systems Theory, EMDR, Mindfulness Based Interventions, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy.

I believe counseling is a partnership to help you heal, change, and grow. This partnership is built on mutual trust and respect. My role is to provide a comfortable, safe, confidential place for us to meet, to bring the best of my professional training, and to listen to you with an open mind and open heart. I specialize in many different life challenges including life-transitions, career changes, anxiety, depression, spiritual problems, co-dependency, trauma, and addictions. I also enjoy working with military personnel, veterans and their families, as I am a military spouse myself and a veteran. I believe that counseling is a joint effort that involves both the training of the counselor and work with commitment on the part of the client. I also offer Supervision services to Residents in Professional Counseling who are working towards licensure in the state of Virginia.

Lisa

★★★★★
I started with Thriveworks and Lisa 3-4 months ago and I was nervous about telling a "stranger" my deepest issues and things I'm not always comfortable admitting myself. I have to say she has been amazing through an really tough relationship break and other things I was or am going through in life. She makes you feel comfortable and truly listens, providing support and options for situations which allow me to be able to look at situations differently. She has made an incredible improvement on my life and I always look forward to meeting with her. It has become a breath of fresh air for me. She is amazing and I consider her a friend. You can't go wrong.

Lisa Cornelius- My wonderful experience with her.

★★★★★
I worked with Lisa Cornelius for more than 6 months and she really is amazing. She helped me through my struggles by giving me strategies that could help me involve my well being. She is honest and she will connect with your situation by putting herself in your shoes. I've never connected with a therapist like I have with her. She really knows what she is doing. I highly recommend her!

Counseling appreciation

★★★★★
A note of thanks to my counselor Lisa Cornelius. I have seen her for 2 years now and through our sessions an finding that I am a good person who has needs and a future that I never knew at 72 I coukd look forward to. Our lives go full circle sometimes and after bad things happen we start to think we have no right to try to be anyone but who others think we should be....not true! Hopefully Lisa and I can continue this journey and I can learn to relax in the real me and be content and happy with myself...thank you Lisa ....

Ms. Lisa

★★★★★
Ms. Lisa is a very amazing counselor. She helps you understand and can relate to you, which makes you feel better. Her way of counseling is different from past counselor. It was more dull with my past counselor, but with Ms. Lisa it is different. It is better to me. I definitely recommend Ms. Lisa because everytime I leave I feel lighter and a little bit better. 😊

It was an excellent experience.

It was an excellent experience. I have been suffering from high anxiety and was skeptical about talking with someone who didn’t know me. After my first session I could finally see light at the end of the tunnel. I cannot wait for my next appointments so that I can learn how to take my life back.
