Christian Counseling

Christian Growth

Christian Counseling is often difficult to find and can be hard to understand what to expect. It is our hope at Thrive Family Counseling to share our approach and views of Christian counseling. First, all persons are due dignity and respect. Entering counseling means that each person has the right to decide which model is best for them. If someone decides to begin their process of healing and chooses a non faith-based approach, we will happily provide appropriate treatment without religious pressures. The focus of therapy is to help each individual with their specific goals and needs.

Enhanced Therapy

Christian counseling enhances traditional therapy approaches by adding a scriptural foundation. . Thrive Family Counseling holds to either one or both of these two perspectives, Interactionism and Christian Psychology. The overarching part of these two perspectives is they are Scripture specific, hold the standard of professional licensure, and acknowledge a personal calling to the field. The differences typically lie between the styles, types, and/or methods of using secular psychological approaches.

Our Goal

As Everett Worthington stated, “ Christian counseling is an explicit or implicit agreement for the provision of help for a client, in which the counselor has at heart the client’s psychological welfare, but also the client’s Christian spiritual welfare and tries to promote those goals through counseling methods, and the client can trust the counselor not to harm and to try to help the client psychologically and spiritually.” With this understanding, commonly known theories in psychology are insufficient because they focus solely on the natural part of humanity. This does not make all psychology wrong. Research on human behavior, the environmental influences, social/cultural influences, and neurological functions are extremely valuable to the care of someone’s struggles. The great difference between secular and Christian psychology is faith, Scripture, and the Gospel, not the denial of research-based truths.
