Christian Counseling

Personal religion might be an important part of who you are. Finding mental health care that acknowledges and validates your faith can bring you to a better place mentally and spiritually.

Faith-Informed Counseling

Christian counseling is a broad term and it could mean several things to different people. Christian Counseling can come in many forms including:

  • Christian psychology
  • Biblical counseling
  • Pastoral counseling
  • Christian perspective counseling

Each of these approaches have their differences and are better in some cases than others. However, one thing is a constant in each of them; they take into consideration the client’s Christian’s worldview.

Every therapist should consider their client’s culture, sexuality, race, gender, and religion. It’s important to have a multicultural approach to counseling. Christian counseling is counseling that uplifts a person’s Christian faith while providing the mental health care they need.

What Does Christian Counseling Look Like?

Christian counseling doesn’t have to look much different than traditional counseling and therapy. In fact, most Christian counselors mix Christian theology and anthropology with psychotherapy practices.

Christian counseling sessions will include aspects of the Christian religion that are important to those in the faith. These practices are used to reinforce personal faith and spiritual growth.


Prayer is how Christians commune with God and is therefore an important practice for many Christians. It can be a great source of comfort and is often used in Christian counseling.

Reading Scripture

Some Christian counseling sessions involve reading the bible directly. Afterward there may be a discussion about the passage and how it applies to current day life.

Religious Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (RCBT)

RCBT is similar to CBT but it Encourages clients to utilize their religious beliefs in the process of restructuring negative distortions.

Christian Perspective Counseling

Modalities of therapy can be adapted to include religious perspectives. This can look like having open and honest conversations about spiritual matters.
