Christian Marriage Counseling at VowsToKeep can take you from where you are in your marriage to where God wants you to be. Have you been through marriage counseling without any real change? Are you ready to take a different approach?
What is different about VowsToKeep counseling?
Many have experienced mainstream counseling to be a dive of desperation into the past with no direct heart change in the end. 80% of mainstream social workers surveyed in a recent study were in favor of discussing religion in therapy but did not. This statistic is not surprising because most of their guiding theories are in stark contrast to Christian beliefs about who God is and what success even is. Furthermore, mainstream therapists tend to get very little training in how to deal specifically with matters of faith.
So these ‘professionals’ take the easy way out with labels, medications, and blame shifting to explain “unresolved psychological issues of the past.” Mainstream psychotherapy and Christianity are in competition with each other as rival methods of explaining the human soul. Sigmund Freud, the father of psychotherapy, wasn’t a fan of God. He wrote how religion was “comparable to a childhood neurosis”, “infantile” and “humiliating”. Freud and the industry built around his teachings view your faith merely as unscientific means of analyzing what is going on within our minds. They would submit religious beliefs might be worth exploring in therapy as fantasies and illusions. They would be wrong and leading many to deeper desperation in the process.
Imagine trying to heal your marriage WITHOUT God?
Our Biblically-based methods are mot mainstream! To keep things balanced, your marriage will be counseled by a husband and wife team in every VowsToKeep session. VowsToKeep, as contrasted to mainstream Psychotherapy counselors, is not afraid to share God’s truth! We use the Bible – and teach you a set of skills to use it so marriages achieve God-honoring unity for the long haul.
While the past may be discussed on occasion, it isn’t used as justification. The focus is on movement and taking Biblically supportable action for the future of your marriage. VowsToKeep counselors begin with the present and assist in setting very clear and specific Biblical goals. In your first 2 sessions we will build a customized road-map to navigate each issue that is causing division between you and your spouse. It’s a road of hope with biblically defined success as the destination.
VowsToKeep clients choose to work with our team because they want to, not because their insurance forces their direction. VowsToKeep is a pledge-based ministry. In other words, we do not have a set fee for counseling because we do not want finances to be the reason you do not seek Biblical counseling. However, the amount of money you do pledge goes directly to support the ministry and the couple spending time with you. For reference, we have clients pledge anything from $20 – $120 per 1.5-hour session.
