Christian Counseling in Round Rock, TX—Counselors and Therapists
One of the hardest things about being a Christian is that you have a large amount of “head knowledge” or knowledge about God. Who He is, what He wants for your life, and how He wants you to feel and live. However, the most important thing about a relationship with God is just that: an actual relationship with God.
Christian counseling gives an opportunity for a therapist to be able to bring their personal relationship with God into the session to help support the client. A Christian therapist desires for their client to draw closer to God in their own personal life and Christian counseling can provide the emotional and spiritual support an individual needs in order to heal in their spiritual attachment to God and others.
Matthew 11:28 states “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”
If you are struggling with:
- A medical diagnosis
- Relationship conflict
- Mood swings
- Trauma & PTSD
- Chronic pain
- Domestic abuse/violence
- Men’s issues
- Sexual abuse
One of the first steps in healing is realizing what emotions are going inside of you. The second step is naming them and then feeling like what you are experiencing is normal. Normalizing feelings, circumstances, and responses is important when a person is working towards being a healthy individual. In life there are some things that seem bigger than others. One of those things is suffering. Suffering is a difficult part of life and it can feel like you are not equipped to handle what may be going on. Suffering can also change what you feel you know about life and what you know about God. Broken heartedness, discouragement, and a loss of personal joy in life are all interconnected and Christian counseling can help address these struggles in a holistic way. Ariell seeks to help meet the needs of a hurting world by equipping individuals to learn how to respond to life in a perspective that feels authentic to themselves and brings the person closer in their personal relationship with God.
