  • Faith-Based Counseling

    We understand that your faith is not just a set of beliefs but also deeply connected to your cultural background. As Christian therapists, we are committed to respecting and valuing your cultural context. By having a shared faith, we can empathize with your experiences, traditions, and struggles, allowing for a more profound level of understanding and connection. 

    More and more of my clients are looking for faith-based counseling that can heal the mind and the soul. They want to be able to not only discuss the issues they are having but also openly discuss God, the Bible, and their belief in the power of prayer.

    And I am not the only counselor who has noticed that people prefer to seek guidance from those who support, rather than challenge, their faith. In fact, according to a nationwide survey by the American Association of Pastoral Counselors (AAPC), 83% of Americans believe their spiritual faith and religious beliefs are closely tied to their state of mental and emotional health. 

    Three-quarters have stated it’s important for them to work with a therapist who integrates their values and beliefs into the counseling process. And more respondents said they would prefer to see a religious counselor (29%) than a psychiatrist (27%), psychologist (17%), or family doctor (13%).

    We aim to holistically integrate the mind, body, and spirit of people of all faiths, while others focus solely on applying scripture to modern-day problems instead of social sciences.

    In our faith-based counseling sessions, we provide a safe and non-judgmental space for you to explore your spiritual journey. We aim to create an atmosphere where you can freely express your thoughts, questions, and concerns regarding your faith. Our therapists are trained to integrate psychological techniques with Christian principles, allowing for a holistic approach to your well-being. 

    Immanuel Approach to healing

    The Immanuel approach is a therapeutic method that focuses on deepening one’s connection with God in order to facilitate healing and growth. Developed by Dr. Karl Lehman, the Immanuel approach integrates principles from neuroscience, attachment theory, and spiritual concepts to help individuals experience emotional healing and develop a stronger relationship with God.

    Core Principles:

    Relational Focus: The Immanuel approach emphasizes the significance of healthy relationships, particularly the relationship with God and others, as a means of healing.

    Emotional Connection: It recognizes the importance of connecting with and processing emotions in a safe and supportive environment.Cooperative Interaction: The approach encourages cooperative engagement between the client, the therapist, and God, facilitating a deeper experience of healing and growth. 

    Understanding Immanuel:

    Connection with God: The Immanuel approach seeks to facilitate a personal, interactive connection with God, recognizing Him as a source of comfort, guidance, and healing. 

    Healing Pathways: It explores the pathways to healing, such as identifying and addressing emotional wounds, fostering secure attachments, and cultivating a sense of safety and trust.

    Brain Science: The approach integrates knowledge from neuroscience to understand how the brain processes emotions, memories, and relationships, providing insights into the healing process.

    Immanuel Prayer: 

    Co-Experiencing with God: Immanuel Prayer involves inviting God into the therapeutic session, where both the client and therapist engage in a cooperative dialogue with God to access His presence, guidance, and healing. 

    Cultivating Connection: Through intentional listening, engaging with God’s presence, and processing emotions together, the client can experience emotional healing, increased self-awareness, and a deeper connection with God.Integration and Transformation: Immanuel’s Prayer aims to integrate past painful experiences with God’s healing presence, leading to transformation, greater peace, and a sense of wholeness.
