Core Values and Theory of Counseling
Counseling based upon the principles of creation, fall, and redemption
Biblically-based counseling is grounded in the following principles of creation, fall and redemption. First, we are people that have worth, dignity and individuality because we are created in the image of God. We are designed to live in relational harmony with God, others, and ourselves. Secondly, because of the fall, we live self-protected, relational, co-dependent and broken lives. We turn toward many other substitutes and substances in order to find fulfillment and hide from honesty in our relationships. Lastly, God is making all things new. He is redeeming everything, not only for one day but also in the here and now by grace through the person and work of Jesus Christ. This gives us hope for the present, perseverance for the future, and a perspective on the past.
Continual healing and the redemptive process
Counseling is one part of the healing and redemptive process. As a Christian counselors, We use psychological knowledge and known therapies, such as cognitive behavioral, narrative, and family system theories, filtered through the above-mentioned Christian world view. Furthermore,his approach also focuses on looking at patterns of relating to others as a way of understanding how one thinks, believes, behaves, and feels about his or her life. These views are presented most notably by authors Drs. Larry Crabb and Dan Allender.
