Christian Perspectives in Counseling

For those requesting inclusion of faith-based principles


Therefore, encourage one another and build each other up.


-1 Thessalonians 5:11 



Seeking Spiritual Health

Riverside Counseling Center is pleased to care for individuals from all religious and nonreligious backgrounds.  Our goal is to provide warm and professional care to everyone who seeks help.

For those who do not wish to discuss religious beliefs, we will not discuss religious perspectives in counseling.  We will focus on psychological and medical approaches to help restore satisfying emotional and relationship balance.

For those who do wish to include Christian faith as part of their counseling experience,  we offer therapy which integrates faith, psychology, and medicine.  Our Faith-Based Counselors  will help you to examine the role of healthy religious belief and behavior emotional renewal.

Several of our counselors and doctors offer Faith-Based Counseling.  A list of counselors and medical staff who integrate faith and psychological approaches, when asked, are noted below.  Our receptionists are also available to discuss which provider may best meet your needs

We must also consider how to encourage each other to show love and to do good things.” 
Hebrews 10:24
