Starting Christian counseling

What is Christian counseling?

Christian counseling in Midlothian is a form of faith-based counseling that utilizes psychological and spiritual techniques to guide and support. Often, Christian counselors often incorporate prayer and scripture-reading into treatment to help practicing Christians work through their challenges.

How does Christian counseling work?

Christian counseling works by focusing on themes of hope and healing through one's faith. At Thriveworks, your Christian counselor will discuss Christian values and relate them to your unique struggles. You can expect to discuss the following with them:

  • Your Christian identity
  • Your relationship with God
  • What the bible says about your current challenges
  • How you can overcome your struggles in a way that aligns with your faith
  • How to channel your religion in a way that helps you heal

Is Christian counseling conducted in person or online?

Christian counseling at Thriveworks is conducted both in person and via Online therapy. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How long does Christian counseling last?

Christian counseling can last for a few weeks, months, or longer. It depends on what challenges the client might be working through, the severity of those challenges, as well as other needs or preferences.

Christian Counseling in Midlothian, VA—Christian Counselors, Coaches, and Therapists

Following your faith and living up to your strong Christian values isn’t always easy. Consider: You pray to God daily, attend church every Sunday, and read your bible when you feel like you need a little guidance or a pick-me-up. But then, life gets busier and busier until you’ve abandoned these habits and forgotten all about your faith. You can’t remember the last time you prayed, went to church, or pulled out your bible.

Don’t worry. It’s only human to fall out of routine and put important parts of life on the backburner. Remember: God loves you, always. If you are struggling with a serious mental health challenge or issue, but you haven’t been particularly present in your faith, you need not worry even then. He is still there to guide and support you. Additionally, you can find this faithful guidance and support in Christian counseling.

Faith is to believe what we do not see, and the reward of this faith is to see what we believe. –Augustine

If ever you begin to waver from your faith—be it due to an overwhelming schedule, a personal or professional challenge—it’s vital that you remember it is never too late to find your way back. In times of need, turning to God and Christianity can prove helpful, not to mention it can help align you with your faith again. You can do so in Christian counseling at Thriveworks Midlothian, VA. We have Christian counselors and therapists who can help you work through the challenges that are prominent in your life and bring you closer to God at the same time. If you’re interested in scheduling your Christian Counseling appointment now, give our office a call at (804) 799-7944.

Does Christian Counseling Really Work? How?

Like traditional counseling, Christian counseling at Thriveworks Midlothian is here to help you through the challenging situations you face in life. However, the difference here is that Christian counseling is led by counselors who share in your Christian faith. You will work with them, in your shared beliefs, to grow, find greater happiness, and strengthen your relationship with God along the way.

During your first Christian counseling session, your counselor will want to get to know you a little better. They’ll work to understand your specific needs and goals for Christian counseling. Then, they will use this understanding to design a unique plan of care for you moving forward. They can better decide on the therapeutic practices that might benefit you as well as the Christian principles and scriptures that can best supplement treatment.

When you’re ready to begin working with a Thriveworks Midlothian Christian counselor, please reach out. You can expect the following from your time in Christian counseling:

  1. Scripture-reading: It’s important to understand, remember, and learn from the lessons that are detailed in the bible. During your Christian counseling sessions, your counselor might bring attention to different scriptures and talk about the lessons that one can take away from them.
  2. Utilization of therapeutic techniques and tools: Don’t forget that Christian counselors are professionals who aren’t only well-versed in their faith but in the mental health field. They will identify and utilize effective therapeutic techniques and tools to use in your specific situation. They will also work to equip you with the skills and tools needed to better address future challenges that directly affect your mental health and wellbeing.

There are many different ways in which a Christian counselor can assist you during your time in Christian counseling. As mentioned previously, the time you spend with us will not go to waste, as your treatment plan will be crafted with your specific needs in mind.

I have known Dena Wentz for many years. She is a compassionate and insightful advocate for everyone she encounters. She fully listens to you when you talk and is perceptive enough to take each individual's life situation into context. Instead of using a "one size fits all" approach, Dena truly works to understand each person's unique position and how that affects her or him on a larger scale. With Dena, I always feel appreciated and supported!

I have worked with Mrs. Dena Wentz for over a decade. During this time, she has always been an extremely stable positive force in our clinic. Her sense of fairness and common sense is beyond reproach and she keeps us all grounded in our approaches to various patient care circumstances. She often makes us stop and think about where the patient is coming from when we are frustrated with a patient's lack of compliance or adherence to recommended therapies. She is the kind of person you want to listen to your difficulties and concerns because she is such a caring and empathetic person. She will then make significant efforts to provide you with solutions. She is also a very thoughtful cheerleader and motivator for our team and makes sure to mark our achievements and our professional acknowledgments. She has frequently been there for me when I have struggled to work with patients and helped facilitate the communication channels I need to accomplish my role. I highly value my relationship with Dena we all are fortunate to have her on our team!
