Welcome to Good Courage Counseling
Christian Counseling in Richmond, Virginia
Sarah Joyner, LPC
We are so glad you are here and that you took the first step to your wholeness and healing. What a courageous step that is!
The concept of good courage is having an inner quality to face difficulty and possible risk towards a goal that is for ultimate good, with boldness, calmness, confidence, and strength in spite of fear. This is not a quality that we can simply muster up, but one that we must practice in order to grow in it. It is also rooted in a dependence on and trust in God, as our Higher Power. We are not promised a life without suffering and pain, but we are promised His peace because He has already overcome all the suffering and pain of this world (John 16:33). Moreover, we can have inner strength and good courage because He is good and He is with us (Joshua 1:9).
Psalm 27:14 says “Wait on the LORD; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the LORD!”
As a faith-based counseling practice, it is our goal to integrate evidenced-based counseling techniques with grounded theology and the Holy Spirit's leading. It is likewise always the choice of the client if they would like faith-based counseling and can be discussed with their therapist.
