Christian Counseling in Washington, DC—Counselors and Therapists

Think about it: You put so much effort into building a strong relationship with God as well as your loved ones, but sometimes that means putting your personal needs on the backburner. Life gets so busy and chaotic that you forget spending time alone with your faith is precious.
Faith doesn’t always mean that God changes your situation. Sometimes it means He changes you.”–Steven Furtick

What Can I Expect from Christian Counseling?
Christian counseling is similar to conventional therapy or counseling; however, it differs in that you work with a counselor who is of the same Christian faith. In other words, an individual who shares in your desire to walk with Christ, grow near to him, and turn to Him during tough times. In working with a fellow Christian who also has skills, training, and experience in counseling or therapy, you can achieve new heights.
During any given Christian counseling session, you can expect your therapist or counselor to combine their devout Christian faith and practices with important principles of psychology to create an optimal treatment plan for you. You can also expect your Christian counselor to involve scripture, prayer, and biblical teachings to best help you.
