THE PROCESS OF COUNSELING
Our goal at BVCC is to help people so that they can learn to help themselves. We never make our patients dependent on us so they have to keep coming back for years of counseling. We are experienced in treating many different types of problems. We use Christian Cognitive Therapy methods. We use a Relationship History Inventory method to uncover past hurts. We teach emotional defense methods to protect you from abusive people. We teach you the 10 Laws of Boundaries to help you in relationships. Many Christians come to us for help with: Depression, Anxiety and Panic disorder, Marriage problems, Dating advise, Eating disorders, Alcohol and drug abuse, Childhood abuse, Sexual abuse, Parenting advice, testing in adults and children for ADD and OCD, Grief counseling, how to find God's will for your life, Anger Management, sexual identity problems 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. We have always kept our fees very low for the purpose of reaching the people who need help but can’t afford the high costs of counseling. We believe in the Great Commission found in Matthew 28: 18-20. There are many people who come to us who are not saved, and we have a wonderful privilege of presenting the Gospel of Jesus Christ to them. Some of the folks who come to us not only need salvation, but they also need deep healing in their soul. In 2003, The New Life Counseling Clinics of 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 counseling techniques 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. We may refer our patients to family Physicians for the treatment of medication. We believe very strongly in our client’s confidentiality and we are very concerned for your privacy.
