Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Focuses on the relationship between psychological concerns and spiritual well-being. Pastoral counseling integrates psychology with theology to address the needs of individuals who want professional services with a religious foundation. Sometimes called faith-based counseling, pastoral counseling emphasizes religious and moral values of the client in regards to their emotional and mental health. Many individuals wish to make life decisions and changes based on the principles of their faith. A pastoral counselor empathizes with the client’s values to bring about changes that are congruent with their religious affiliation.
