For some, Christian counseling is simply Christians offering counseling. Not so at PCPC. Our faith gives us our worldview and is integrated into all that we do. We believe that our work should be top-notch professionally because God expects excellence. However, we are also grounded in the Lord and the belief that He has revealed to us in His Scripture the important truths necessary to live a healthy and whole life. This is accomplished through the application of the most current and well-researched techniques that psychology has to offer combined with the work of the Holy Spirit.
Any one of our therapists can provide Christian counseling.
My problem isn’t spiritual, why would I want a Christian counselor?
Christian counselors work with a full range of psychological issues. For many problems, the question of faith may never arise.
I don’t believe all that God stuff. I would do better with a non-Christian therapist, right?
Not necessarily. Christian counseling is not counseling for Christians. People from all faiths, including atheism, have been helped at Pike Creek Psychological Center. Religion is not taught or pushed at this center. Our faith informs our worldview which impacts our therapy. We do not believe that everyone should make up his own truth that is most pleasing to him. Rather, we believe there are some absolutes given by God (e.g., murder and affairs are bad; forgiveness and love are good).
Will I have to read a Bible, pray, or engage in some other religious activities?
No. Our focus is on helping people grow and function at the highest level possible. We are a psychology practice, not a religious institution.
But what if I want to discuss my faith, talk about things I am learning in the Bible, or deal with my frustration at my church?
Then you have come to the right place. Our therapists are not only extremely competent as counselors, but are well versed in issues of faith, including the problems inherent within religion.
Is this group run by a church, or do you belong to a particular denomination?
No. The practice is privately owned, and the therapists are from a variety of evangelical denominations.
