Bethesda by the Sea’s Approach to Intensive Christian Counseling

“It’s all about relationship!”

That is the heart of our philosophy of  Biblical Counseling. One of the factors that contributes to the potential success of Christian counseling is the relationship developed between the client and the counselor.


The intensive counseling format provides ample time not only to establish rapport, but to develop a meaningful relationship  that provides the context for the possibility of substantive growth. Our desire is to help you experience freedom, healing, and meaningful change.


At Bethesda by the Sea, we long to see you rested, refreshed, renewed, and restored to fulfill your Heavenly Father’s destiny and purpose for your life.
