A Biblical Approach to Addictions, Anxiety & Depression
Counseling For Addictions
Whether you or a loved one has an addiction with the internet, alcohol, drugs, pornography, gambling or other debilitating compulsions, Heartfelt is here to help! Addiction can be devastating, life-altering and will cause one’s walk with God to be weakened and vulnerable to spiritual attack; anxiety, depression, anger, guilt and/or shame result. An addiction can become all-consuming, even deadly. Seeking a professional who has in-depth understanding of Biblical truths can serve as a crucial step in the right direction. We will focus on your personal battle and your desire to spiritually, emotionally and physically heal. We encourage our clients to rely on the Holy Spirit’s supernatural intervention, knowing full well, that the power of Christ can transform your prison of dependency into a shackles-breaking victory!
Matthew 6:13—“And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
Help With Depression
If one has never been through a deep (i.e.: clinical) depression, one cannot fully imagine nor appreciate the sense of blackened hopelessness and abyss-like despair that depression creates. Nothing looks beautiful; nothing feels joyful; nothing tastes good, nothing sounds soothing—one’s whole world becomes silently turned inside out and upside down; and one’s soul feels as if it is dying a slow, painful death, with no hope for any recourse.
At Heartfelt Christian Counseling we can provide hope and healing from a Biblical perspective! We make sure our clients come to realize that depression is something that happens to someone; it is not what that person is! The professionals at Heartfelt recognize that when God says something, it comes with the promise of His Absolute Power—supernatural power to change one’s mind, heart and body—literally!
Psalm 34:17-18—“When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their troubles. The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.”
Anxiety goes by a number of different names such as ‘obsessive-compulsive disorder’ to ‘panic attacks’ to ‘post-traumatic stress disorder’; the list goes on. At Heartfelt, we encourage our clients to seek the healing power of God’s grace and intervention by exploring Holy Scripture to help one understand the spiritual nature of anxiety and how, if left unchecked, can be incapacitating. Marriages have been destroyed due to this emotionally draining and debilitating condition. Anxiety, as with all spiritual elements of personality, can be overcome by understanding what is truly igniting those anxious moments. Once the spiritual nature of anxiety is unveiled and full exposed, an entirely new perspective on how to understand, face and battle anxiety can come into play. When this happens, empowerment, deliverance and inner-peace can take hold, and grow.
1 Peter 5:7–“Casting all your anxieties on Him, because He cares for you.”
