about us
In order to grasp the unique vision of Soul Care Christian Counseling, it is helpful to understand how the counselor’s perspective and approach affects the counseling process and outcome.

Typically, when people seek counseling, they are distressed—something in their life is not going well and they are hurting. The counselor’s approach will be determined by what they believe is the underlying source of the pain and their definition of progress and health.

Think of it in medical terms.

Treatment for severe chest pain will vary greatly if caused by anxiety or by coronary artery disease. If anxiety is the source, then anti-anxiety medication and stress-reducing techniques will be most effective. But, if the chest pains are actually symptoms of coronary artery disease only a different approach would provide real, lasting hope. Diet and exercise changes, heart medications and possibly even surgery, would be the appropriate treatment. Anything less would provide only a temporary sense of well-being and allow irreparable heart damage to continue.

The parallels to Christian counseling are stark and very real.

At Soul Care, we believe that the specific issues that bring people to counseling are often symptoms of deeper psycho-spiritual heart problems. They are also powerful opportunities to engage the transformative power of the Gospel and experience the hope, freedom and peace Jesus promises. We also believe that while God clearly does work through psychology-centered counseling, the heart’s deepest need is for more than the nearly exclusive focus on psychological dynamics of most therapists—even many Christian ones. It is because of these convictions that Soul Care's counselors bring a unified Counseling/Spiritual Direction approach to help those individuals and couples they work with.

Soul Care is on

  It is the spiritual and psychological aspects of our life that mark us most distinctly as human. If care is worthy of being called soul care, it must not address parts nor focus on problems but engage two or more people with each other to the end of the nurture and growth of the whole person.
