Why Christian Counseling? Why not just go see your pastor? We understand that you may have many reasons why you don't feel you can seek counseling within your own church. Pastors are often over-extended in caring for their flock, and many have not received specialized training in counseling.
Professional Christian counseling pursues wellness of the whole person from a uniquely spiritual perspective while applying sound therapies. Your counselor will pray with you and for you; your privacy and confidentiality will be protected; and your religious convictions will be respected.
Here at Mercy Counseling our primary counseling goals are: 1) to help the individual focus on their worth as a creation of God; 2) to teach them about their inborn temperament; 3) to help them develop healthy ways of communicating with and relating to others; 4) to help individuals overcome wrong thinking and behavior patterns by renewing the mind; and 5) to encourage a more intimate relationship with God through faith in Jesus Christ.
