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.
