Why Christian Counseling?
Life can be hard. Really hard. And Christians don’t always do a great job caring for one another in the tough times. We don’t always know what to say if a loved one is struggling with a mental health diagnosis. And how do we face things like abuse, trauma, and anxiety with hope for healing?
This is where we come in–therapy itself is a powerful tool to bring hope, restoration and real change. We believe that integrating the love of Christ with evidence-based therapeutic practices is the key to full healing. Because at the end of the day, what your counselor believes (whether or not this is made overt) impacts the way they counsel.
We want to provide you a space to be a whole person, without having to separate your spirituality from your mental wellbeing.
Christian Counseling can provide a safe space to come fully as you are. Especially if you are wrestling with Church hurt, spiritual questions, religious abuse, or are struggling to reconcile a loving God with the pain of your experiences, we understand. Our counselors want to create a place for you to fully examine all aspects of your story, including your faith, in a way that helps you feel valued, comforted, and empowered, without judgment.
“I truly believe because of the work I’ve done in Christian counseling I can love God more deeply”
God’s heart is for unity
Christianity is rife with division. Suffering in today’s world has caused painful splits between believers. We want to provide a space that acknowledges these hurts, and provides a safe space for reconciliation and healing.
Counselors at Cornerstone come from a variety of backgrounds and denominations, but rally around our Statement of Faith.

Does a christian counselor really matter?
Therapy in general can be incredibly vulnerable. Knowing you’re sitting across from a brother or sister in Christ can help increase feelings of safety. Having shared experiences (and similar frustrations) can further create a bridge of trust between you and the therapist you choose.
If you desire it, your therapist can read scripture, pray with you, and discuss questions about God–whatever you are comfortable with. We guarantee that even after your session is over, your counselor will still be praying for you. As the body of Christ, we want to support you fully, in whatever way is best for you.
