Spirituality in Counseling
Spiritual beliefs are now recognized to be a part of a person’s healthy coping skills, offering a social support system, the ability to find meaning and purpose in life, providing comfort in times of grief, and a strong ethical code. Incorporating spirituality in counseling positively affects healing, supports a sense of hope, and is a source of comfort along the way. Therapists may inquire about a client’s spiritual beliefs and encourage clients to connect with their spiritual communities. They may also point out areas where spiritual beliefs, practices or relationships seem to be causing, not relieving, unnecessary suffering or seem to contradict a value, goal or belief the client has expressed. Therapists are also able to assist clients seeking to clarify or discover their spiritual selves. This is not a matter of a therapist teaching a particular spiritual or religious model. Rather, the process of therapy involves the client in an ongoing inquiry into his or her own nature and their spiritual life.
Our mission is to be a compassionate place for hope and healing for all people in the North Texas area; and to contribute to the overall health and well-being of the community in which we work and live by providing the best care to every client through Christ-centered, integrated clinical practice and education.
