Inner Healing Counseling & Art Therapy

Inner Healing Counseling

Inner healing is a counseling method that focuses not only on treating a person’s negative thoughts, feelings, and behaviors but also addressing the wounds and losses that have originally caused these negative thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.

Using this approach, the focus will be on life transitions, identity development, healthy relationships, and spiritual formation.  Deep-seeded issues may be explored and treated as counseling progresses over time. If applicable, a Christ-centered inner-healing model of therapy called formational prayer will be utilized.

Formational prayer is a Spirit-led practice of a Christian counselor to position the wounded person to experience the Healing Presence of Jesus Christ.
