Our therapy sessions are built on Christian teachings and reliance of God's power to heal all in His perfect timing according to His plans to heal and build us. We respect each client’s individual spiritual journey and tailor our approach to align with their faith perspective and psychological needs.

7. What are the benefits of choosing a Christian counselor in Los Angeles County or Orange County?

Choosing a Christian counselor in these regions means working with someone who understands the unique cultural and spiritual landscape of Southern California. This local understanding helps in addressing specific community-related stressors in line with Christian values.

8. Can Christian counseling help with anxiety and depression?

Absolutely. Christian counseling addresses mental health issues like anxiety and depression by combining clinical therapy techniques such as CBT with reliance upon Christ's promises and teachings, providing a dual approach to treatment.

The duration of couples counseling varies depending on the specific needs and situation of the couple. Generally, counseling can range from a few weeks to several months, with weekly or bi-weekly sessions.

10. How do I know if marriage therapy is right for us?

Marriage therapy might be right if you're experiencing persistent conflict, feel distant from your partner, or face significant life transitions. It is particularly beneficial when both partners are committed to healing and growth under Christian guidance. However, many of our sessions start with just one partner, which in turn inspires the other partner to join.

11. How confidential are counseling sessions?
