Christian based Counseling/Coaching is an option for those who desire a faith based approach.
Often times Christian based services are lacking in either a professional counseling degree or a legitimate Bible degree. This can put clients at risk for spiritual abuse (confusion, blame, false teaching, shame and hurt). It can also put them at risk of real mental health issues not being addressed appropriately or misrepresented as something else.
William and Heather have a Masters Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy, are Licensed in either WI and/or MN, have a BS in Ministry from Northwestern Bible College and are also certified in Christian Counseling by the American Association of Christian Counselors. Christian based therapy/coaching is an option only. Christian based therapy can include Scripture, prayer, and the implementation of Christian discussion and resources, depending on what the client desires. Implementing faith into a session is not preaching, or lecturing about spiritual matters. We are first and foremost here for you, to walk along side of you, in your journey as professional Marriage and Family Therapists. Since we are trained and specialized in a variety of areas, such as trauma, PTSD and spiritual abuse, we see people as a whole and understand that people need to be met in a safe, non-judgmental environment. Due to our trainings, we tend to approach this area cautiously and maybe more reserved than some, trying to meet the client where they are at spiritually and emotionally.
