Christian Counseling in Sterling Heights MI—Macomb Therapists and Counselors

As a Christian, you’re taught from a young age to set aside time to grow your relationship with God. Maybe you weren’t sure what that meant, or maybe life just got too busy for you to develop that routine. Wherever you stand in your journey with Christ, it’s never too late to make an effort to better it.

“The reason birds can fly and we can’t is simply because they have perfect faith, for to have faith is to have wings.” –J.M. Barrie

When times get tough, remaining faithful and hopeful for better times is important. However, it can be easier said than done. At Thriveworks Sterling Heights, we offer Christian counseling to those Christians seeking assistance to find their way back to their desired path. Bettering your emotional, physical, and spiritual self is essential on your journey to a happier, healthier state of being.

Christian counseling is unique in that it incorporates Christian practices such as scripture reading, prayer, and biblical lessons into your counseling session. If you’re looking for Christian counseling, give Thriveworks Sterling Heights, MI a call at (586) 238-4265.

How Can Christian Counseling Help Me?

Seeking help doesn’t mean you aren’t strong in your faith. Asking for help isn’t a sign of weakness. Instead, it is a sign of strength. It takes strength to choose to better yourself and your relationship with Christ. When you choose to grow in your faith, you also choose to grow in your relationships, your self-reflection, and your ability to forgive yourself and others.

Christian counselors work with clients for a number of different reasons. No problems are too big or too small to seek guidance. At Thriveworks Sterling Heights, our Christian counselors can help you in areas such as:

  • Struggling to adjust to life changes
  • Relationship issues
  • Learning disabilities and/or problems in school
  • Career or job stress
  • Depression management
  • Anxiety help
  • Trouble overcoming past trauma

This list is only scratching the surface of reasons why people choose to seek Christian counseling. No matter what you may be facing, our counselors can provide the help you need that reflects the principles you live by.

How Does Christian Counseling Differ?

It can be intimidating to step into your first counseling appointment. The unknowns can cause you to feel nervous and unsure. Something that may ease your mind going into your first session is knowing your counselor practices the same religious beliefs you do. At Thriveworks Sterling Heights, we believe that it is important to consider your faith and religious views when we design your treatment plan. Christian counselors combine faith and psychological practices to form the perfect care appropriate for you.

Just as you mend your life to match God’s good intentions, your counselor will mold your sessions to match your objectives. The goal behind Christian counseling is to restore your commitment to your faith and help you find your way on your walk with Christ.
