What Is Faith Based Counseling?

At Faithfully Guided, we offer a collaborative and faith based model of counseling. We believe that crisis can come in the form of conflict or a traumatic event, often resulting in a shaken identity. It is our goal to meet you where you are by cultivating a safe and trusted place to navigate your individual response. The goal is to restore identity and hope, no matter the situation. It is our ultimate mission to guide you to abundant life through phases of lifestyle health that build stress resilience and brain health which leads to healthier choices, coping and adapting to the unexpected.

Defining Faith Based Counseling

You may have heard the term “faith based counseling” before and can probably infer the meaning of the phrase. By definition, faith based counseling, also known as pastoral or Christian counseling, combines behavioral science, found in most counseling practices, with teachings found in scripture. It allows an individual to find healing through God rather than oneself or another person.

Not only will you find relief for your mental health, but you’re also focusing on spiritual health. At Faithfully Guided, we place emphasis on hope that integrates scripture, science, and strategies through our faith based counseling services. Our counseling focuses on strengthening identity and relationships as well as increasing and facilitating the relationship between you and God as the healer.


Our pastoral and Christian counselors are certified through the National Christian Counselors Association (NCCA) and the American Association of Christian Counselors (AACC), meaning that they have taken and completed specific pastoral counseling and continuing education courses. The NCCA and AACC not only conduct research for faith based counseling, but they also outline a process for providing counseling based on God’s teachings. At our health center, we also integrate mental health counseling with specializations in trauma and play therapy.

Healing through Faith-Based Counseling

Just like traditional counseling, faith-based counseling can help you with:

  • Identity
  • Anger
  • Fear
  • Pain
  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Grief
  • Trauma
  • Depression
  • Loneliness
  • Self-Harm
  • Codependency
  • Compulsive Behaviors
  • Coping Skills
  • Marriage and Family

Additionally, seeking out healing through faith based counseling can be recommended for individuals, but also for couples and families. Your clinical counselor will work with you one-on-one or in a group setting to communicate struggles and then relate it back to foundational teachings found in scripture.

Is Pastoral Counseling Only Reserved for Those with Christian Faith?

At Faithfully Guided, we serve all people. You do not have to be of faith to come to us and seek out healing. We can integrate meaning and purpose by strengthening identity and renewing the care for your soul.
