Biblical Basis

This counseling is strictly religious in nature, the work of a minister of the gospel. I believe that God, through His revelation in the Old and New Testaments of the Bible, has provided His people with thorough guidance and instruction for faith and life (2Tim 3:16-17; 2Peter 1:3-4). This counseling is based solely on scriptural principles. I reject the teachings and methods of modern psychology or psychiatry, whether expressly secular or an attempted integration with biblical principles.​

Price

The first session is free (normally about 90 minutes). 

At the end of the first session I will lay out a plan for the counseling, and you can decide if you would like to proceed.  


Additional sessions: Suggested donation of 
$50 per one hour session.
Not required for those
 in financial need.


Biblical Counseling vs Psychotherapy

 All agree that we should try to help those who are struggling, but differ over which approach is better—Integration or Biblical Counseling?

The Integration model holds that we should integrate secu­lar theories of psychotherapy with biblical principles. The Biblical Counseling model, also called 
nouthetic counseling, relies on biblical principles alone.

The biblical counselor is not opposed to the use of research into human behavior. That aspect of psychology can be quite helpful. The Integration model errs when it goes beyond what can be discovered through research and applies philosophies of psychology that are unbiblical. Not all human wisdom is bad—only human wisdom applied to spiritual issues that are addressed in Scripture.

At Food For Your Soul, we believe in the sufficiency of Scripture for all spiritual issues.
