Statement of Understanding
We are committed to the wholistic approach: the theological, psychological and cross-culturally sensitive approaches to healing and wholeness. This healing process will shape your life and equip you to meet the spiritual, mental and emotional needs of your local and global community by deepening your intimacy with God. A client's Spiritual formation is a critical piece to emotional and psychological well being. Although we are open to inviting this conversation of spirituality into the therapy process, it is handled with the utmost respect and awareness that the psychological process is the primary focal point for treatment.
We believe in the Covenant of Marriage and the amazing blessing God has bestowed upon couples to become parents and to raise their children according to GOD's plan. The Bible teaches marriage is the foundation of society. God established marriage (the family) and the church institutions to be the incubator of life. Just because God instituted marriage, however, it in no way supersedes His will and His commandments for those within the marriage covenant/institution. Grace is bestowed and Divorce may be a necessary situation. Our counseling principles are founded on God's truth, our practices are respectful of all faiths and cultural diversities.
