Biblical Methodology

Issue by issue, clients are shown Biblical Principles, instructed to truth and obedience, encouraged to be accountable to God and to experience His power in transforming their perceptions, attitudes and actions.

Prayer, Bible study and sensitivity to the leading of the Holy Spirit become the “tools” clients use to effectively deal with conflicts in life and to live a relationship to God that insures ongoing spiritual maturity.

Cognitive Biblical Therapy

This process of Biblical counseling is found in the Scripture and is not only sound theologically, but psychologically. It is not an integration of psychological theory and scripture, but uses a specific counseling process that assists the client in healing or solving the presenting problems.
