About Us

Welcome

Greetings and welcome to Bay Area Christian Counseling, we are a brand new 501(c)(3) non – profit ministry, a provider of mental health and psychological counseling and therapy services.

What is and who are the professionals at Bay Area Christian Counseling? We are first and foremost believers and followers of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We are often referred to as by some as “born again believers”. Secondly and just as important we are professionally trained licensed and insured Clinical Counselors and or Social Workers. All of our therapist have Master Degree training and have been licensed through the Board of Professional Counselors and Therapist located in Baltimore, Maryland.

It is our intention to provide our clients with biblical truth and psychosocial insights that minister to hurting persons and helps them move to personal wholeness, interpersonal competence, mental stability, and spiritual maturity.

What about “Christian/Spiritual” aspect of our center

We are unashamedly a Christian Counseling center. Yet we have many clients who seek and desire the benefits of our professional training, experience, wisdom and expertise but would like to opt out of the spiritual aspects of the counseling. If this describes where you are please do not be afraid, come in because we can and want to help. It is not our policy or desire to harshly push our spiritual beliefs on you or any others, we know that this can be highly offensive and it simply does not work. We have an open and gentle approach in the area of spirituality respecting the values and beliefs of all persons.

What does it mean to be a Christian and what is Christian counseling. We must start with we must see things in this world through the eyes of Jesus. We need to see people as Jesus sees them. We are body, mind, soul and spirit and if all of those elements are healthy and working in unison we have a healthy happy holy person. And if they are not then we believe that there is a need for our help. We are goal oriented in that we want to know where the person is hurting or struggling and then apply sound clinical and spiritual counseling to help the client reach their goals.

Our goal is to provide sound professional clinical mental health and counseling services, rooted in Biblical truth and ethics, for the Christian community and the community at large. Practicing our God-given spiritual gifts of love, discernment, encouragement, teaching, healing, knowledge, administration, helping, and wisdom.

By continually developing and honing our spiritual gifts coupled with ongoing professional clinical education in the scientific knowledge and professional skills of evaluation, assessment, diagnosis, treatment planning and therapeutic intervention we believe will provide the client with the greatest possibility of reaching their goals and having a positive outcome.

In our practice we will endeavor to treat all people, regardless of age, race, sex, religion, ethnicity, or socio-economic status with dignity, respect, empathy and acceptance. To those in need or who have limited financial resources we offer adjusted rates on a sliding scale on a case by case basis in order that more clients can get the help that they need.

Finally, by affirming and carefully following the ethics and morals of our Christian faith and the ethics rules and regulations mandated by the state boards that govern our profession as a counseling center and as individual we will always strive hold to the highest practices and be above reproach in all areas of our lives.
