Online Christian Counseling
Online Christian Counseling involves using a biblical framework, in addition to modern psychological counseling theory and methods, to process Individual and Couples Issues. This is available for Christian clients who prefer using scripture and faith throughout their counseling process.
Who is this for?
Galatians 6:2 “Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.”
It is an honor to serve individuals and couples who are seeking counseling that utilizes a biblical framework and focuses on Jesus Christ. This counseling service is available to individuals and couples who are dedicated to their faith and are looking for a professional counseling service that aligns with their faith.
It can be very difficult to find a therapist, let alone a Christian therapist. This is one of the many reasons Revive Counseling was formed. This practice is meant to be a safe place for Christians who might not have access to professional counseling resources through their church or are having a difficult time finding a Christian therapist.
All of our therapists are Christians who have a desire to help others grow in their relationship with Christ and find healing from anger, anxiety, stress, depression, and couples concerns. Since we are not only therapists, but those who have an active relationship with Christ, we understand many of the issues individuals and couples struggle with through the lens of a Christian. This drives us to treat issues and concerns through a Christian framework.
Who isn’t this for?
Our online Christian counseling services are offered to those who struggle with similar concerns to those listed below. While we might address and discuss each client’s concerns with certain passages in scripture or other textual critiques, the primary purpose of our counseling service is mental health. If the only reason an individual is seeking counseling is to discuss Christian apologetics, then pastoral counseling may be a better fit. Any concerns over whether or not counseling will be a good fit can be discussed during a free 15 minute consultation. If it is decided that therapy might not be the best fit, we are happy to make referrals when necessary.
The needs of each person vary, but Christian counseling might involve prayer, reading scripture, and the use of modern psychological methods. Faith is integrated into a typical counseling framework. Some psychological therapies that might be used are cognitive behavioral, emotion focused, existential, and Rogerian.
Depending on the issue, some clients need to explore past relationships that contribute to current pain and concerns. This can be a lengthy process but can be critical in finding relief from certain issues. Others prefer to just learn various coping strategies. Regardless, whether exploring past relationships or discussing various coping strategies, Christian counseling integrates faith into each counseling avenue.

About Online Counseling
Due to counseling at Revive being online, it is important to establish the legitimacy and appropriateness of online counseling for each of our clients. First, we use a HIPAA compliant platform to conduct all of our sessions. This means that your information is entirely confidential and protected. Our job is to make sure that you feel safe and that all sessions and personal information is confidential. One of the ways that we do this is by using a HIPAA compliant tele-health platform as well as a HIPAA compliant scheduling software.
Second, establishing a connection with your therapist is important to us and more than possible through online counseling. If we did not believe that you could establish a relationship with your therapist or make strides towards your goals, we would not participate in online counseling. We are committed to making sure you feel that you are making progress and have a working professional relationship with your therapist. If you decide to participate in online counseling, you and your counselor will work together to establish goals to make sure you are moving forward and making progress. In addition, just as with face to face counseling, you will have time to build a professional relationship and feel comfortable talking with your counselor.
Third, due to the nature of online counseling all clients need to have a reliable internet connection and private place to meet virtually with their therapist. This is essential to get the most out of online counseling. If you need help with setting that up, then you can speak with your counselor to get a few tips on how to make this possible.
Finally, please send us an email if you have any questions regarding our online counseling service. We want to make sure all of our clients find the right fit for them. If online counseling is not a right fit, then we are happy to make referrals. If online counseling is a good fit, then feel free to schedule an appointment online.
