What is Biblical Counseling?
Biblical Counseling is ministering Scripture to those who face struggles in life or who desire wisdom or God’s direction. Gable Counseling uses an integrative approach to counseling. Our integrative approach means God’s revealed truth is held in highest regard and good psychology is viewed as a common grace that is very beneficial as well. We believe all truth is God’s truth whether rooted in Christian history or the history of psychology and psychotherapy.
Who is Biblical Counseling for?
People seek therapy for a wide variety of reasons, from coping with major life challenges or childhood trauma, to dealing with depression or anxiety, to simply desiring personal growth and greater self-knowledge. Though Christianity is the leans in which we view the world, we will not push it on our clients. If asked for or invited by the client the counselor will be willing to utilize scripture, biblical stories, and/or prayer in sessions.
How do I get started?
Your first step is to call us to schedule your initial appointment. You will be asked to provide some initial information over the telephone and fill out our patient consent form. You may then be scheduled for an initial session which provides an opportunity for us to build a rapport. In addition, we will be able to answer your questions regarding services, fees, confidentiality and what to expect in therapy.
