Licensed Clinical Pastoral Counseling

Licensed Clinical Pastoral Counseling is the foundation from which Faithfully Guided Health Center was built. Co-Founder Jamie Schofield, M.A. spearheads a team of qualified licensed clinical pastoral and Christian mental health counseling professionals who provide Christian marriage counseling, individual counseling and family counseling.

Each pastoral / Christian counselor specializes in Temperament Therapy.  This biblically-based counseling approach focuses on addressing source issues vs. outer symptoms.  This model is proven to be 90% effective in helping people enhance their relationships with God, their family and friends, and the community.

Some of the issues that pastoral and clinical Christian counseling address include identity and spiritual development, anger, bullying, coping, conflict resolution, abuse, depression, grief, anger, fear, stress, codependency and more.  We even offer premarital and blended family counseling.

Our pastoral and Christian counseling experts are exceptionally qualified and have extensive experience with Christian marriage counseling, family counseling and individual counseling:

  • Jamie Schofield, M.A.
  • Dave Scott, M.A.
  • Antoinette (Toni) Johnson, M.A., LMCH Registered Intern
  • Stephanie G. Smith, LMHC

The beauty of Faithfully Guided Health Center is that we can refer to our clients to in-house services we feel are beneficial.  For instance, a pastoral or clinical Christian counseling client who is experiencing significant stress may find our Holy yoga classes or fitness classes to be beneficial.  Having in-house instructors for both our fitness classes and holy yoga classes also makes scheduling more convenient.

What is the Difference Between Holy Yoga and Traditional Yoga?

Yoga classes

Yoga was adapted in the West primarily as a way to reduce stress. Holy Yoga is a Christian form of yoga that encompasses many of the same positions and sequences as traditional yoga but instead on centering on “self”, participants focus on connecting with Christ.

Holy Yoga is an experiential worship designed to deepen your connection to Christ. Our sole purpose is to facilitate a Christ honoring experience that offers an opportunity for believers and non-believers alike to authentically connect to God through His Word, worship, and wellness. Holy Yoga exists to carry the gospel to the ends of the earth through the modality of yoga.

Our Holy Yoga instructor, Cealia Athanason, summarizes it like this:

“Holy Yoga helps us realize that it’s not about us being perfect or bringing anything to the table but ourselves—just as we are. It’s about our perfect Father filling us with His Spirit and the love of Jesus to lead us through the beautiful plan He has for us. Ultimately, Holy Yoga is a place of rest and refreshment in our lifelong journey toward wholeness, relationship, community and purposeful living.”

In a nutshell, Holy Yoga not only helps reduce stress, but it helps strengthen the body, mind and spirit by developing and nurturing a deeper connection with Christ.
