Principles of Counseling

Center for Emotional Healing

Biblical Worldview

As a clinical organization, The Center for Emotional Health values and practices a biblical worldview. Simply meaning, we consider the bible as the inspired word of God and its teaching as guidelines in our personal lives, as well as in our provision of care. However, we do not dogmatically apply these principles, nor do we teach these principles explicitly without the client’s knowledge or agreement.

Licensed Counselors

Our clinical team consists of licensed and provisionally licensed counselors, as well as student interns, who have an interest in growing personally and professionally, desiring to articulate their own treatment philosophy while upholding a standard of care consistent with organizational policies and mission.

Client First

Our clinical team respects the rights and individuality of every client. Following the biblical principle to “love our neighbors as ourselves” and upholding the Hippocratic Oath “First, do no harm,” is our foremost objective in the context of the therapeutic relationship.

Holistic Approach

Our clinical team recognizes clients are more than a case number, a diagnosis, or a cluster of symptoms. Clients are human beings with his or her own unique needs, challenges, and life circumstances. We understand that human beings are a composite of mind, body, spirit, and relationships. We investigate each of these life domains to deepen our understanding of the client’s needs and increase our efficacy in targeting and achieving treatment goals.

  • Trauma
