Christian counseling is available here, near Chicago in Oak Park, IL. See also the Marriage counseling and Other counseling pages.
Pathway has provided caring counseling for 20+ years, with many hundreds served. If you are having unwanted emotions, marital challenges, or tough circumstances, you can make that phone call!
While research shows that a majority of Americans who come to a counselor would like to incorporate their spiritual beliefs into the counseling, most counselors do not present this as an option. But at Pathway, whether to draw upon one's spiritual life is up to the client - some wish to, others not. I offer a Christian perspective to those who say they want this. "Thy word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path" (Ps.119:105).
Many people fail to realize just how much relief or other benefit they can gain simply by sitting down and talking with someone who cares. Many—perhaps some you know—have found wonderful growth and freedom simply by sitting and talking with a professional. We all need help at one time or another. The real issue is this: the help must meet the need. Trying the same old things may bring the same old results. Therapy may help bring new solutions to old dilemmas!
As for this picture of a compass, I pray that coming to Pathway might help you on the path to find "true north" in your life!
