“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.” Psalm 119:105
At Genesis Christian Counseling the Bible forms the foundation for our counseling and practice. We firmly believe that it is God’s truth that genuinely sets us free from the problems that we face. One of our central goals is to help individuals see their problem and life through the lens of God’s truth and the gospel message of Jesus Christ. Because we believe that the Bible has great relevance to our lives, we seek to apply God’s Word in a warm and winsome way as appropriate to an individual’s unique situation and place in life.
At Genesis Christian Counseling we are also about practical help. Our counseling approach is to walk alongside individuals and couples to help them identify the thought patterns, motives, and roots of the problems that they face. As problems are identified we offer practical tools and guidance to help individuals and couples move towards, spiritual, emotional and behavioral healing and growth.
The Heart is the Target
“Above all else guard you heart, for it is the wellspring of life.” Proverb 4:23
Targeting the heart makes us unique at Genesis Christian Counseling. While we are very concerned about thoughts, emotions and behaviors, we are especially concerned about an individual’s inner life. The Bible describes the heart (inner person) as the wellspring of our thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. Therefore our counseling involves helping individuals discern the motives of their heart and life. In other words, we seek to address the question, “Why do we do what we do?” We believe that true and lasting peace and freedom come when significant heart transformation takes place.
