What can I expect from Christian counseling?

You can expect compassionate care from your Christian counseling at Faith Integrated Psychiatry. The specifics of your spiritual guidance may depend on your personal needs and goals.

Dr. Kwakuyi completes a diagnostic psychiatric evaluation, including life mission and spiritual assessment, before starting any therapy. He uses the information from your evaluation to determine how best to proceed.

Your Christian counseling may include Bible reading, prayer, and various therapeutic techniques to improve how you feel and behave. 

Dr. Kwakuyi may use religious cognitive behavioral therapy (RCBT), which is a form of therapy that helps you identify your negative thoughts and recognize how they make you feel. Then, he uses your faith and belief in Christianity to change your thinking and improve how you feel. 

With Christian counseling, Dr. Kwakuyi uses the Bible as a tool to help guide you through your challenges.

Christian counseling makes you feel more optimistic and grateful, improving your emotional and spiritual well-being. To schedule your Christian counseling consultation, call Faith Integrated Psychiatry, or book an appointment online today.
