Christian Counseling

Many people choose to work with counselors who approach counseling with a faith-based perspective. Research indicates that when a counseling treatment plan takes into consideration the client’s worldview, including spiritual beliefs, the relationship or “therapeutic alliance” is strengthened and other positive outcomes occur (Koenig, 2004; McMinn, 2011). Christian counselors have the unique advantage of being able to approach issues holistically based on three dimensions—body, mind and spirit. The greatest gift of Christian counseling is finding the healing power through Jesus Christ.

Here are some things to know about Christian Counseling…

Christian Counseling is different than pastoral care or lay counseling…

My counsel may differ from what a pastor or lay counselor provides. While pastors and lay counselors are trained in providing support and guidance, they lack the professional expertise of a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), such as with myself. Many pastors, ministry leaders, and lay counselors refer people to me because I am a licensed professional and provide counsel for the deeper psychological and emotional issues. I am not affiliated with any particular church or denomination. I partner with many churches and offer my counseling services to their attendees and/or members.

Prayer and Scripture…

I will not impose my spiritual practices upon you. I will only pray or utilize Scripture if you request it. We will make it a part of your counseling experience only if you are comfortable or desire these practices.

What if I’m not a Christian…

I won’t impose my beliefs or practices on you. This is unethical. If you are not a Christian, I don’t treat you differently than a Christian client. You are inherently worthy and valued like all human beings. I will work with you from your faith perspective and help you incorporate what you’ve learned from counseling into your life. My goal is to help you heal and grow because of your counseling experience with me.

What you can expect…

While working with me as your therapist, expect to be treated with dignity regardless of your faith or lack thereof. You are a valuable human being of great worth. I partner with you in your healing journey with this in mind. I aim to build you up, speak the truth in love, foster transformation and provide grace.

Dr. Christine Bielinski: Counseling Services

I view you like God does. You are made in God’s perfect image. I believe God has a process of taking us from a broken and hurting place and restoring us so that we can live with joy and peace again.
