We realize that our clients can obtain discounted counseling sessions from their church or other organizations.  We also realize that many people do not seek counseling because of the prices.  To help decrease that cost we offer different rates for our counselors to meet every budget.  In addition to our already reasonable rates from time to time we like to offer promotions like this one today!

Please note:
We always offer a free 15-minute initial telephone consultation and an initial 30 minute face to face consultation that you can schedule here

Do you want to jumpstart the new year in a better marriage?
Do you want to stop dreading each holiday with your family?
Do you want to decrease depression and improve your life and your relationship with God?
Want to stop pretending to be happily married and actually be happily married?

For many of us the holiday season is the happiest time of year.  We get excited about seeing our family and eating all the good food throughout the season.  But not everyone experiences happiness or peace during the holiday season.  Many have suffered significant losses or may be experiencing problems in their marriage or family.  During the holidays consider giving the gift of counseling as the gift that keeps on giving.  Give it to yourself, your marriage, your family, a friend or a loved one.

See the Value in Past Challenges

Black Woman ContemplatingThink about a difficult situation you had in the past that ended up making you a better person in some way.  You may have thought it was the end of the world at the time.  But you lived through it and you may have become stronger or been given new opportunities as a result.

What lessons did you learn from that situation? How can you apply what you learned to your life now?

A PAINFUL HEART

A painful heart

Jesus said, “Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted” (Matthew 5:4).

Some may read this and think Jesus is saying that sadness is a blessing. But that’s simply not true. It hurts to mourn. It is painful. Mourning for the sake of mourning is not a blessing. What Jesus really meant is, “When life gets hard, bring your pain to me and I will comfort you.”

The blessing is that we have a savior to lean on in times of pain—and we all have pain. That pain impacts our actions, and our actions reveal its depth.

When I see a young wife in my office in tears because she can’t open up sexually to her new husband, I don’t assume it’s because she doesn’t love him. It’s not her heart, but her pain that causes her to hold back.

She may have experienced sexual or physical abuse as a child. Perhaps she grew up with the message that sex was dirty or wrong. The pain holds her heart hostage.

When I see a man struggling with alcoholism, I never assume it’s because he has a wicked heart. The bottle is simply his way of soothing a deep-seated pain.

To deal with his emotional wounds, he began drowning his sorrows in alcohol—until the addiction took over. He doesn’t drink because he’s evil, but because he hurts.

Pain has to be dealt with, one way or another. Left to our own devices, we always deal with it in the wrong way. We medicate ourselves with food, drugs, alcohol or sex. We motivate ourselves with unhealthy ambition or busyness. Some of us deal with our pain by meditating on it: becoming obsessed with it and wallowing in our misery.

Right or wrong, we all deal with pain in some way, utilizing the above coping mechanisms to get by. But we will never find true healing until we stop struggling to overcome our pain on our own and instead give our wounded hearts to God.
1 Peter 5:7 says, “Cast all your anxiety on Him because he cares for you.” We are also here for you. Give us a call, we offer free consultation over the phone or in person.

Fathers, You Teach Your Daughters How Their Husbands Should Treat Them

father and daughter

Ardenfrost had this to say about raising daughters:

“It gave me a lot of opinions on what it means to be a man. Being a man isn’t anger, it’s not yelling, it’s not violence, it’s not fighting, it’s not impatience, it’s not acting before thinking. Being a man is making right decisions, it’s doing the right thing, it’s treating people well despite how they treat you, it’s fully assessing a situation, it’s understanding through perception, it’s remaining calm, and it’s doing all these things in the face of adversity. I’m not perfect; I make mistakes. But I do my best to be a good man, because my daughter needs that. She must know what a good man is, so that in what will feel like a few short years, when boys are falling over themselves to talk to her, she’ll know what is good in a man.”

After getting a flood of attention, he added, “I am not telling you how to be a man. I’m telling you how to be an example to your daughter.”
