CHRISTIAN COUNSELING

 PASTOR SANDY JOHNSON CLARK, MDIV, BCPC

Board Certified Pastoral Counselor & Life Coach

Doctorate of Ministry (Candidate)

 

 

Philosophy of Christian Counseling/Coaching:
 “Plans fail for lack of counsel,but with many 
advisers they succeed.” 
Proverbs 15:22

 

Pastoral Counseling has been recognized as a life-changing, life enhancing experience for millions of people world wide.  Christian Counseling stems from God's Word, as the Bible has many references to show the value of searching out wise counsel. Proverbs 24: 5-6, states “A man of knowledge increases strength; and in a multitude of counselors there is safety.”  Wise people seek out Christian Pastoral Counselors to grow stronger in their spirit and soul with resulting benefits in their body. 

 

Christian Coaching helps you to reach your God-given purpose. Life Coaching is rooted in the Bible as the following scripture verses show: “Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go.” – Joshua 1:7 “May God give you the desires of your heart and make all your plans succeed.” – Psalms 20:4  Pastor Sandy as a Life Coach, provides you with sound Biblical guidance to motivate you, encourage you thus helping you to achieve your life goals. 

 

When we are in life struggles, it is essential that we reflect all issues against the Biblical mandate of Love God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength and others as ourselves. If we do this then He promises for all things to fall into place. Matthew 6:33. It is my belief and desire to help people enter into a closer relationship with Christ, to let Him set us free from anything that hinders us... When God sets you free, you are free indeed!  For He is RAPHA, the Lord your HEALER.  Exodus 15:26
