Counseling

 

Crossway offers counseling based on sound Biblical truths and principles. Our approach reflects the forgiving and understanding heart of Christ while lovingly confronting deceptions in thoughts and behaviors with accuracy. Our warm and accepting office atmosphere will provide you the opportunity to experience God’s love in a secure and confidential environment. We offer 3 types of Biblical counseling services:

 

Christian Counseling for individuals

Individual Counseling

God has worked through the staff at Crossway to successfully meet a variety of adult needs including problems resulting from abuse, addiction, and depression. If you’re struggling with difficult relationships or any other variety of personal issues, Crossway can help. We provide a welcoming environment where you can be open and still feel safe. We specialize in biblical, discipleship counseling which equips you to navigate life's challenges and experience a more intimate walk with Jesus Christ. 


Marriage Counseling

Marital Counseling

We are available for pre-marital and marital counseling to help couples form a Biblical foundation concerning God’s plan for marriage with Christ as the centerpiece. In marriage counseling we trust God and His Word to reveal underlying issues needing healing and restoration, and we’ll help you see how God’s grace makes you and your spouse better together. All of the staff at Crossway have personally encountered marriage difficulties and have been in your shoes. The answer we’ve found is the same solution we’re excited to share with you - God’s grace heals!


Skype Counseling

If you live outside the Anderson area, we can still help! We offer individual and marriage counseling through Skype. All you’ll need is a computer or tablet device that supports live video and an email account where you can receive handouts.
