Church Partnership Program
How we can help
We understand that the counseling needs of some people in your congregation surpass the time and resources you have available. A referral to Hope for the Journey Counseling Center gives you the assurance that members of your church family will receive the professional and faith-based care they need.
We are a community of professional therapists who are committed to serving Jesus Christ and providing quality, clinical counseling through authentic, caring relationships with clients. Our team of therapists have expertise in many areas, including:
- Anxiety and stress
- Grief and Loss
- Marriage Counseling
- Family Therapy
- Adolescent counseling
- Parenting Skills
- Sexual Abuse Recovery
- Relationship Conflicts
- Questions of Faith
- Physical/Mental Disabilities
We believe that Christ followers should be afforded the opportunity to incorporate their spiritual practices and beliefs into their professional counseling experience. For example, we help clients by:
- Unpacking Biblical truth as it applies to their life struggles
Praying with and for clients
Facilitating restoration and reconciliation in relationship
- Providing a safe environment to explore God’s grace and forgiveness
We believe that every individual is guided by their spiritual (faith, beliefs and value systems). It is not our purpose to impose our personal faith or beliefs on anyone or reduce client concerns to simple spiritual issues. Rather, under the direction from the client and the Holy Spirit, we offer to help integrate spirituality and faith into our clients’ journeys of growth and healing.
If your church provides financial assistance to its members for professional counseling, we offer billing services to make the process easy for you and your church members. We also have reduced rates on services for people who qualify for public assistance.
