Mercy Christian Counseling Ministries provides holistic Christian counseling and health coaching services that focus on your spiritual, mental, emotional, social, and physical well-being. All services are provided in a caring, confidential, Christian environment.
What does it mean to be healthy? The World Health Organization defines it this way:
"Health is a state of complete physical, emotional, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity."
To this definition must be added spiritual well-being.
Hello, I am Dr. Susan Haberkorn, an Ordained Minister of Pastoral Care and Clinical Pastoral Counselor licensed by the National Christian Counselors Association. My focus is to help you overcome emotional challenges and pursue optimal wellness for your body, soul, and spirit. I will pray with you and for you as an important aspect of your therapy.
I believe that each individual can and should take responsibility for their state of well-being, and should pursue any and all methods and modes available, including both conventional and alternative health care. I am happy to work in cooperation with other health and wellness professionals to help you achieve your wellness goals.
The fact that you are reading this site is no accident. I believe you are here by divine appointment, and therefore you can rest in the knowledge that God knows the needs of your heart. It will be my privilege to walk out this journey with you, so please don't hesitate. The beginning of healing is just a phone call away. I can be reached seven days a week at (240) 520-2713. I offer counseling in person, by secure online video link, and by telephone.
Relationship issues, rejection, fear, anxiety, depression, grief, guilt . . . . Do these issues interfere with your life and make you feel distant from God, cut off, hopeless?
