Christian Counseling Gainesville, Gwinnett

Christian counseling is an effective method of employing positive healing and growth from both past and present life circumstances.  Many individuals, couples, families and groups find the christian counseling process involves both a biblical perspective and a psychological perspective that are woven together uniquely for your situation. Life’s hurts and hang-ups most often stem from a deep, inner need to find resolution or freedom from relational, physical, emotional or spiritual pain. Use of scripture and prayer in the counseling process, along with application of psychological theory, helps ensure a well-rounded approach to progressive healing and ultimately positive changes in your life.

Christian Life Coaching services are for individuals looking for present or future change without any past triggers that can make change difficult.  These sessions are also from a biblical perspective and employ psychological theory to make lasting and effective change possible.

This 501 (c) 3 non-profit ministry does not seek to turn anyone away due to financial difficulty in meeting the suggested rate for professional counseling services. 

Dr. McCollum is clergy, and therefore does not diagnose for the purpose of insurance: “While we hold professional credentials and ecclesiastical endorsements, we are not state licensed counselors, instead we are licensed clergy and are subject to state clergy exemption laws as well as other exceptions to the requirement of state licensing for counseling (i.e. Georgia code 43-10A-7). We are not psychologists, psychotherapists, psychiatrists, or medical doctors. We are pastoral counselors who are highly trained, credentialed, certified and licensed by the top Christian counselors associations in the nation and equipped to provide religious counseling around issues relating to spiritual and mental health.”

Sliding fee scales and personal rates can be applied for you to make your counseling  experience more comfortable.
