Biblical Counseling


​Grief and Loss

 New Information!
All counseling is now donation based!  
We ask that you contribute financially to this ministry according to your means. Jesus said "freely you have received, freely give." (Matthew 10:8) Therefore, we do not charge for ministry. However, there is a cost involved to be able to offer this ministry. In order to cover the cost of time, materials, and insurance, we would need to charge $75 per session to cover our expenses. Therefore, we would ask that you consider making a per session donation of whatever you can afford to help defray the cost. In addition, we ask that you be responsible for purchasing any books or materials used. I obtain these at the lowest available cost and will gladly make them available to you for the same price.  

​​How should we approach our problems in life?  
 Biblical Counseling is practical and effective. It does not view people as simply spiritual beings with spiritual problems; instead the counselor sees the individual as a physical, emotional, cognitive, and relational being.

The primary goal of Biblical Counseling is to show the counselee how all of life is to be lived to the glory of God, and as we seek to glorify Him through how we love, obey, and trust, lasting change and spiritual maturity occur.  As we help others develop a biblical view of their life and as they recognize the core truth that guides right thinking and actions, they truly become "transformed".

Biblical Counseling also values the rule of the local church in the process of one's change of heart or sanctification. Heart change brings about life change, but this is accomplished most effectively in an authentic Christian community, the local church. This work often includes intervention by other people such as a pastor, a mentor, or a counselor.

The Biblical Counselor helps people identify their problems in biblical terms that may involve a renaming of the problem, such as drunkenness verses alcoholism. As this is done, the individual’s view of his or her problem is changed and becomes a biblical view and
thus able to exercise biblical solutions. This process is filled with grace, love, mercy, and patience.

There is hope!  
All of us experience troubling situations at different times in our life. Some of them are the result of our own choices and some come from other's choices - most of the time they are a mixture of both.  However, the truth is that God allows every tough situation to help us to seek Him and His answers.

There is help!
If you are ready for a new approach to solving old problems or if you are faced with a new problem and are looking for answers, we can help.

Secular psychology can make observations about man and his problems, but the observations and well-meaning attempts to offer solutions fall short of the truth about mankind that is revealed to us in God's Word. Biblical counselors believe that the Holy Scriptures chiefly contain what man ought to believe and what duty God requires of them. There is no other foundation outside of the Gospel and God's Word that can offer hope and abundant life for men and women. Therefore, Scripture is not only necessary in the counseling room, it is sufficient to help men and women with the deepest sorrows and struggles that they face.
