WHAT IS BIBLICAL COUNSELING?
David Powlison, the Executive Director of the Christian Counseling and Educational Foundation (CCEF), once said, "Biblical counseling is just this: an intentional conversation between a person who is suffering and person of wisdom, rooted in the Gospel of Jesus Christ."
At Crosstown Counseling, we agree with Dr. Powlison. Biblical counseling isn't a form of therapeutic magic. It isn't self-help. It isn't wellness coaching. Biblical counseling is a rich, robust, and heart-transformative back-and-forth conversation between a counselor and a hurting individual, couple, or group. We use the Bible to enlighten both the content of our counsel and the methodology by which we practice. We believe that the Bible speaks into every area of our lives, particularly the painful areas. While God's Word isn't an instruction manual on how to handle every possible scenario, it ultimately points us to a relationship with Jesus Christ, the one who also suffered, walks with us in the midst of our suffering, and promises to one day make all things new. It is in the context of this relationship with Jesus that we believe you can experience lasting healing.
