The practice is guided by Christian principles and the firsthand knowledge of how faith in Christ can increase a person’s courage and provide hope during difficult and stressful times. Our heart is to provide a safe space where clients can talk about their personal issues and concerns despite denominational background or religious affiliation, race, ethnicity, gender or orientation.
