Christian faith in counseling.

Christian counseling is for those coming from a Christian background who want faith to be a part of your counseling experience. Many Sheltering Oaks clients come from Protestant, Evangelical, and Catholic backgrounds. One of our passions is integrating Christian spirituality with Scripture, mental health research, and proven interventions. This method helps people and relationships find greater wholeness.
People often seek Christian counseling when they experience a crisis of faith. Of course, traumatic life events, painful experiences, or a season of feeling distant from God can cause tension. These people seek a Christian counselor to help process grief and trauma. Guidance to find the right path ahead.
At Sheltering Oaks, we are a safe place for people to freely process. Joining our clients on a spiritual journey to take the next steps in relationship and life with God.

Christian Counseling: Integrating faith into the therapy process.

You may be dealing with an individual or relationship crisis and desire faith to be a part of the counseling process. We have worked with many couples, families, and individuals. In general, with relationship issues, conflict, or distress, in Christian counseling.
Christian counseling integrates faith in the therapeutic process. Integrated, to help people reach their goals. With issues like grief and loss, anxiety, or depression, faith can sometimes feel confusing. Of course, it feels more complicated in the midst of constant struggle.
We use a Christian counseling approach to help clients deal with their problems. And, discover how faith relates to their circumstances, to find hope for their future.  
In Christian counseling, changes will often come through your own experience of purposeful processing and reflection. As Christian counselors, we see our role as working alongside the client. To help guide them in that process. So, they can finally get the change and transformation they need.
We use counseling methods that work. Empathetic listening, curious questions, and a variety of therapeutic skills and techniques. Truly, we journey with people in this important process.
