Christian Counseling Services
Gateway Counseling Center is run by the father and son team, DR. John Hawkins SR., D.D., M.S., L.M.H.C. and John D. Hawkins JR., M.S., L.M.H.C., C.A.P. They are both highly trained in clinical and spiritual counseling methods. Dr. Hawkins Sr. has 35 years of pastoral counseling experience. Dr. Hawkins Jr. has made a name for himself through helping many clients overcome psychological hurdles. Experience has shown Gateway that Christian Counseling Services provide clients with better results.
For a person to feel healthy, the following needs must get fulfilled:
People usually go to a medical doctor to promote physical health, but mental health also has an effect on your body. Therapists and counselors typically handle social and psychological health. Unfortunately, spiritual health is often completely ignored, even though it is related to many other health issues. Because Gateway offers Christian Counseling Services, we can better address your needs as a person.
Forgiveness is a major theme throughout the Bible. It is hard to heal if you are unable to forgive the ones who have hurt you or yourself for hurting others. Embracing Christian Counseling Services will help you forgive so you can let go of your pain and anger. Forgiveness is essential for healing to occur.
Christian Counseling Services include value-based therapy. Incorporating values into counseling is important for a couple of reasons. The first has to do with the client’s motivation and trust in her therapist. If you share the same set of values, it is easier to relate to and understand each other.
The second reason has to do with making better choices. Although you believe in Christianity, humans are fallible and sometimes lose site of what is right and what is wrong. Christian Counseling Services helps you make better choices.
Gateway understands that there are many differences of opinion within Christianity. Our therapist will not debate religion with you. Instead, we respect your beliefs and use them to help you achieve the desired results. Our Christian Counseling Services are meant to suit the needs of all Christian clients, regardless of your denomination.
