    Do you want to talk to someone who understands how important your faith is to you, especially when you’re going through a season in which you need to rely on it for strength?If so, you are definitely not alone. Frequently clients are looking for faith-based counseling that can help heal the mind and the soul. For example, Christian clients want to be able to not only discuss the issues they are having, but also openly discuss God, the Bible and their belief in the power of prayer.

    Often people prefer to seek guidance from those who support, rather than challenge, their faith. In fact, according to a nationwide survey by the American Association of Pastoral Counselors (AAPC), 83% of Americans believe their spiritual faith and religious beliefs are closely tied to their state of mental and emotional health. Three-quarters have stated it’s important for them to work with a therapist who integrates their values and beliefs into the counseling process. And more respondents said they would prefer to see a religious counselor (29%) than a psychiatrist (27%), psychologist (17%) or family doctor (13%).

    People differ in their religious beliefs, but therapists know the impact of spirituality on a life can be a positive force like no other. Consequently, in this practice all faiths are welcome.
