Online Christian Counseling


Advantages of Online Christian Counseling

Online Christian counseling offers several advantages, including:

  1. Accessibility: Online Christian counseling provides greater accessibility than traditional in-person counseling. With online counseling, individuals can access therapy from the comfort of their own home, office, or any location with an internet connection. This eliminates the need for travel and allows individuals to fit therapy into their busy schedules.
  2. Flexibility: Online Christian counseling is flexible and can be tailored to an individual’s unique needs and preferences. Sessions can be scheduled at a time that is convenient for the client, and can be conducted via video conferencing, phone calls, or messaging.
  3. Faith-Based Approach: Online Christian counseling integrates Christian values and beliefs into the therapeutic process. This can provide individuals with a faith-based approach to addressing mental health issues, relationship problems, and personal struggles. Christian counseling can offer comfort, support, and guidance to individuals seeking to integrate their faith into their therapeutic process.
  4. Confidentiality: Online Christian counseling provides a high level of confidentiality. Individuals can participate in therapy from the privacy of their own home or office, eliminating concerns about being seen entering or leaving a therapy office.
  5. Specialized Care: Online Christian counseling provides access to licensed therapists with experience and expertise in Christian counseling. This allows individuals to receive specialized care that is tailored to their unique needs and concerns.
  6. Comfort and Safety: Online Christian counseling can be a more comfortable and safe option for individuals who may feel anxious or uncomfortable in traditional in-person therapy settings. Online therapy can provide a sense of security and privacy that can help individuals feel more at ease and open to the therapeutic process.

In conclusion, online Christian counseling provides several advantages, including accessibility, flexibility, a faith-based approach, confidentiality, specialized care, and comfort and safety. If you are considering therapy, online Christian counseling can be an effective and convenient option to help you address your mental health concerns and integrate your faith into the therapeutic process.

Our Remarkable Team

Our Services Include:


Coaching looks at your present functioning along with your future potential in order to help you unlock your giftings, passions, and talents so that you can succeed in being all that God has called you to be. It helps you move beyond your current limitations to set and accomplish God-sized goals for your life.

Anxiety & Depression

Anxiety and depression distort how we feel, think, and handle mundane activities such as sleep, nutrition, and work for extended periods of time. Both are among the most effectively treated mental disorders with routine therapy being one of the most effective treatment options.

Family Conflict

Family conflict is inevitable. Dysfunctional families are the rule, not the exception. A functional family is best described as one that handles their dysfunction with love and grace. Every family experiences conflict. It’s still a challenge to navigate though. Oftentimes an outside perspective creates clarity for the family to find resolution.

Emotional Dysfunction

Experiencing abuse or trauma can create toxic beliefs about ourselves that result in feelings of anger, rejection, worthlessness, low self-esteem, shame, emotional shutdown, and self-hatred. Internalizing these poisonous lies leads to emotional dysphoria and dysfunction where we oftentimes create false identities for ourselves.

Spiritual Abuse

Spiritual abuse is rampant. This kind of abuse must be handled with special care because of how it impacts our identity while creating an unnecessary barrier between us and God. The help of a skillful and trusted guide is essential in healing spiritual wounds and restoring a proper understanding of God, ourselves, and others.

Grief & Trauma

Grief and trauma can develop deep roots in our identity if left unresolved. Whether it’s childhood trauma, loss of a loved one, sexual trauma, or any other form, it needs resolution. Treatment for trauma and grief involves a counseling professional using evidence-based clinical treatments as well as Biblical and pastoral approaches.

Marriage & Relationships

Marriages and relationships are hard work. There are seasons when communication with our significant others feels impossible. Sometimes deeply rooted or toxic problems arise threatening to destroy a relationship we’ve spent years cultivating. Trained marriage counselors give you the safe space and tools you need to overcome these obstacles.

Spiritual Warfare

There is a real spiritual enemy seeking to wreak havoc and destruction in our lives. We suffer under the enemy far more than we need to because we willingly walk in sin or believe the enemy’s lies. A spiritual counselor equips you to recognize the enemy’s attacks while helping you develop a successful counter-attack.


Addictions affect people and their loved ones in many different ways. Not only are there substance addictions, such as alcohol and drugs, but there are also behavioral addictions like sex, pornography, food, video games, social media. Professional counselors guide those suffering from addiction and their loved ones from despair to freedom.

Why Pick an Online Christian Counselor?

What are some advantages of having an online Christian counselor instead of a regular counselor? The decision to use a Christian counselor instead of a regular counselor is a personal one and depends on your needs and preferences. However, for those who are seeking a therapist who shares their Christian faith and values, there are several compelling reasons why a Christian counselor may be a better fit.

An online Christian counselor will generally have fundamental Christian beliefs and values in common with you. One of the main advantages of working with a Christian counselor is that they share your beliefs and values. This can create a sense of understanding and connection between you and your online counselor, which can help build trust and create a more meaningful therapeutic relationship. A Christian counselor can provide a sense of familiarity and comfort that can be difficult to find with a secular counselor.

Christian counselors seek to integrate faith and spirituality into the therapeutic process. This can provide a unique perspective on mental health issues and can help individuals integrate their faith into their healing journey. By working with a Christian counselor, you can explore your faith in a safe and supportive environment and receive guidance and support based on biblical principles. Some practices could include prayer, anointing with oil, or lectio divina to name just a few.

Since online Christian counselors do not exclude their client’s spirituality, they take a holistic approach to therapy, focusing not only on mental health but also on your spiritual and emotional well-being. This can help you achieve a greater sense of balance and wholeness in your life. By addressing spiritual and emotional needs alongside mental health concerns, Christian counselors can help you achieve a deeper sense of healing and growth.

Online Christian counselors offer guidance and support based on biblical principles. This can provide you with a sense of direction and purpose, helping you to navigate life’s challenges with a greater sense of hope and optimism. Christian counselors can offer a unique perspective on issues such as forgiveness, gratitude, and the power of prayer, which can be an important part of the therapeutic process.

With Christian counselors, you have access to a wide range of resources and materials that are grounded in Christian principles. This can include books, devotionals, and other materials that can help individuals deepen their faith and find greater meaning and purpose in your life. By working with a Christian counselor, you can access a wealth of resources that are designed to support your spiritual and emotional growth.

By working with an online Christian counselor, you can benefit from shared beliefs and values, an integration of faith, a holistic approach to therapy, guidance and support based on biblical principles, and access to Christian resources – all from the comfort of your own home. Ultimately, the right therapist for you is one that makes you feel comfortable, understood, and supported, whether that be a Christian counselor or a secular counselor.


When counseling or therapy isn’t the right fit for your goals, then coaching may be what you need. Your goals may be related to marriage, family, health, career, spirituality, or emotional well-being, and our coaches are equipped to help you surpass them.

When you need extra insight, accountability, and a game plan to accomplish your God-sized goals, our coaches are ready.

Pastoral Counselors

Our pastoral counselors have diverse theological backgrounds but are united under Biblical Christianity. Pastoral counselors specialize with people who have spiritual questions, have suffered from spiritual abuse, or are engaged in spiritual warfare.

When you need guidance focused on your spiritual self, then one of our credentialed pastoral counselors will be a great fit.

Christian Counselors

Are you being affected by trauma, disorders, addiction, or abuse? If so, you’ll want to pair up with one of our licensed counselors. Using evidence-based clinical practices that are framed Biblically, our Christian counselors give care you can trust.

When you need counseling focused on psychological care, then one of our Christian counselors can help you navigate to victory.

The Sage (Think Christian Yoda)

Sometimes it’s nice to process ideas and information that you’ve been working through with someone you trust in a safe space. Our sages are expert listeners adept at asking you the right questions for progress. Mature and seasoned ears you can trust.

When you’ve hit a road block in your processing and could use a seasoned and wise outside perspective, our sages are for you.
