Finding a Christian Counselor


You're tired of hauling your pain around.  It's long past time to unpack your heavy load, share your story, and find some kind of hope and healing.  You long for a professional who embraces a Christ-centered worldview.  And in certain locations, locating a qualified counselor who really resonates with you seems to be as rare as hen's teeth.

I firmly believe that as my southern friend Nancy used to say, 'there's a lid for every pot.'  And our God has the perfect, unique people-helper for your needs, your personality, your budget ... in person, online, or over the phone.  Because He is the Great Physician, the ultimate Healer of our souls, His desire is that your pain be redeemed, and that you emerge free from the past, whole and ready to live life well.  And beautifully able to minister grace to others because you have become a wounded healer in the process.

CONSIDER . . .

American Association of Christian Counselors

Focus on the Family Counseling Line.  Their Help Center counselors are there to listen and pray with you, as well as provide guidance and resources to help you and your family thrive.  Arrange to speak with a licensed Christian counselor at no cost by calling 1-855-771-HELP (4357) Monday through Friday between 6:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. Mountain time.

eCounseling.com offers online assistance.

K-LOVE radio.  They have ten full-time pastors who'll give you guidance and referrals.

Your insurance company may have a listing of Christian therapists amongst their mental health professionals.

Large Christian churches in your area often have a counselor on staff or a selection of referrals.

Your local Christian radio station or school may have a list of recommendations.

  1. Ever resourceful, you are. I appreciate this, and the care you offer through Creekside, both near and far. Because (just as you've taught and modeled for me), "whether at home or away, we make it our goal to please Him..."

    Blessings,

    1. Thanks, my friend! It's info we hope we'll never need, but sooner or later find out that we've got no choice if we want to move through whatever challenge is on our path ...

Welcome to the table, friend!
