THE PROCESS OF COUNSELING
The Buffalo Valley Counseling Center is a small and very personal Christian Counseling Agency.We truly care about helping individuals in a confidential and loving way. Many folks do notknow what to expect when they come to Christian counseling. The first thing we do withour patients is to get to know them personally and as much about their background andfamily upbringing as possible. It is important to uncover any past unhealthiness or abusethat could have damaged the soul and emotions of a patient. If we find areas that needhealing, we then use the Bible and its teachings, along with psychological tools that canbring healing to the inner person. This can be a very painful process for our patients; however,we are very careful and comforting to help our patients achieve success at their own pace. We spend a great deal of time with each patient, and will allow our patients to call us bytelephone when they are having difficulty through the week. Our goal at BVCC is to help people so that they can learn to help themselves. We never make our patients dependenton us so they have to keep coming back for years of counseling. We are experienced intreating many different types of problems. Many Christians come to us for help with:Depression, Anxiety, Marriage problems, Eating disorders, Alcohol and drug abuse,Childhood abuse, Sexual abuse, Parenting advice, testing in adults and children for ADDand OCD, Grief counseling, and many other issues.
BVCC HISTORY AND SUPPORTERS
The Buffalo Valley Counseling Center was incorporated in 1993. We started out with offices in Lewisburg and in Williamsport. In 1998, we moved our offices to New Columbia,where we now reside. Through the years, we have presented our Ministry to many Churches,Organizations and Doctors who have graciously supported us with referrals. Most of ourfinancial support comes from the fees of our patients and from the seminars and speakingengagements that we conduct. We have always kept our fees very low for the purposeof reaching the people who need help but can’t afford high costs. We believe in the GreatCommission found in Matthew 28: 18-20. There are many people who come to us who are not saved, and we have a wonderfulprivilege of presenting the Gospel of Jesus Christ to them. Some of the folks who cometo us not only need salvation, but they also need deep healing in their soul. We areable to disciple them to health and wholeness. In 2003, the New Life Counseling Clinicsof Laguna Beach, CA. approved us to be an affiliated Care Provider. New Life is an outstanding organization that we are proud to be connected to. Many of the counselingtechniques that we use at BVCC are tools from Dr. Paul Meier, Dr. John Townsend, Dr. Henry Cloud, and founder, Stephen Arterburn.
Referrals to BVCC can be made by Pastors, Doctors, Agencies, Family members, Friends, Stephen Ministers, and by New Life Clinics.
