Christina is a Board Certified Professional Pastoral Counselor (BCPPC): Modern biblical counseling derives its basic orientation and authority, first and foremost, from the Bible as the Word of God, which is the primary source of all wisdom and Christian spiritual formation; and secondly, from a balanced utilization of contemporary mental health concepts, the behavioral sciences, and sound counseling practice. Furthermore, implementing a care plan and striving towards the prevention of mental/emotional/character disorders, are aligned with the goal of moving toward Christian maturity and wellness. Our ministry is faith-based biblical counseling which builds upon biblical truth and spiritual practice, along with the relevant theoretical and practical contributions of various mental health traditions to help produce Christ-like character, behavior, and contentment in the lives of the people and systems that are served.
