Do you have a loved one who is struggling with addiction?
Are you unsure of how to confront them and help them get the treatment they need?
Do you feel like you've tried everything?
When you seek out the help of a faith-based counselor, you can expect that the advice, direction and feedback will include conversations about spirituality and the impact your decisions have on your spiritual self. What sets a faith-based counselor apart from other counselors is that they incorporate religious ideology into sessions. For example, it is common to have discussions that include references to specific Bible scripture, to use figures like Jesus or Moses as references for how to lead one’s life, and to use parables from religious text as examples for how to shape one’s reality.
What can a Faith-Based Counselor Help Me With?
Faith-based counselors help a wide variety of clients using their extensive training and knowledge in the combined fields of theology, psychology and spirituality. They conduct both short and long-term counseling, as well as teach educational programs on marriage preparation, enrichment and divorce prevention.
Psychology is simply the study of behavior. Biblically, the psychology of behavior means that people are moved and motivated by what they believe. Faith-Based Therapy is a Biblical model of therapy based on the dynamics of beliefs, choices, and faith. Faith-Based Therapy is a Christian counseling model that explains behavior in practical terms. Once understood, change is more easily facilitated.
- You feel what you feel, think what you think, and want what you want because you are moved by what you believe.
- You behave the way you do because of your choices.
- Someone can help you change what you believe to be based on truth and reality, but only you can make loving and responsible choices.
- Yet when challenged to believe the Word of God, you become empowered with life-changing choices.
- When you choose to believe the Word of God, faith arises and change occurs by the grace of God.
When you change what you believe, it will change what you feel, what you think and what you want and thus empower you for better choices. When your beliefs are based on the truth of God and you yield to that belief, then faith becomes active. (“For by grace you have been saved through faith: and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God,” Ephesians 2:8. (NASB)). Faith not only has the ability to change you in the middle of circumstances, but to change the circumstances as well.
Maybe part of you is ready for treatment, but you still have questions or concerns.
WILL I HAVE TO TAKE MEDICATION?
Medication for anxiety, depression and other disorders are considered and recommended on a case by case basis. Medication is not for everyone but it can be helpful for those who need some immediate relief while we work on a long term solution in therapy. If you aren't comfortable taking medication, therapy can still be incredibly effective.
