At Cross and Crown Ministries, we offer highly personalized and confidential counseling services  to meet the unique needs of each client and situation. We provide biblical based counseling based on solid scriptural principles and techniques integrated with the science of psychology. We utilize the concepts of Temperament Therapy, the understanding of our inner self given to us by God for His glory which brings satisfaction and purpose to our lives.  We also use other forms of cognitive therapy as well as inner healing techniques.
Our counseling services include but are not limited to the following areas:
We will all encounter life changes at some point caused by death, loss of job or relationship, or divorce. The impact from these losses are painful and can take time to recover from, sometimes years. Our counseling sessions are designed to provide support, practical information, steps to healing, as well as how to redefine the future in light of the unexpected changes. We provide the short and long term care our clients need in their journey of rediscovery and healing.
Marriage is a sacred covenant between God, man, and a woman. Because of the complexities of marriage there are many causes of friction and unhappiness that can arise. Our premarital counseling sessions are designed to focus on understanding temperaments and the unique needs, strengths, and weaknesses.  We identify ways to establish a loving and supportive home, define roles and authority, and why having God at the center of life is key to a successful marriage.
Our marriage counseling sessions are designed to help clients identify individual needs, learn healthy ways to communicate, and find workable suggestions to be applied in the home. We also Identifying the "junk in the trunk" brought into marriages and how to unpack it so no previous unresolved issues affect the marriage. Sessions are also designed to identify the roles in the marriage and how each person contributes to the success of the marriage.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us. Our friendly staff will help find the best solutions for you.
Child, Adolescent, Family, and Blended Families
A healthy family is built on a healthy marriage. Whether children are born into a family, adopted, or brought in from previous relationships, their need for love, nurturing, stability, a sense of belonging and safety all remain the same. Our counseling sessions are designed to focus on the individual child and their role in the family as well as detecting underlying problems.  Sessions focus on the purpose of family, love and unity in the home, individual family roles, and healthy forms of communication.
Codependency and  Intrapersonal Conflict
Codependency in the broadest sense, can be defined as an addiction to people, behaviors, or things. Codependency is the fallacy of trying to control interior feelings by controlling people, things, and events on the outside. Our sessions are designed to help clients identify behaviors and beliefs that contribute to codependency. We find practical alternatives to live without codependency. 
He reached down from on high and took hold of me; 
He drew me out of deep waters. 
He rescued me from my powerful enemy, 
from my foes, who were too strong for me. 
They confronted me in the day of my disaster, 
but the Lord was my support. 
He brought me out into a spacious place; 
He rescued me because He delighted in me.
  Psalm 18:16-19
