Our Christian Counseling | Christian Therapy: Our Unique Blend of Disciplines!


God was healing people before modern-era Psychology was born and gained such momentum, but there are medical truths about brain chemistry and neurological wiring that need to be considered when helping people heal from hurts, recover from trauma, and grow. And there are helpful, structured approaches for ministering healing to certain issues. And so our Psychological training is one body of knowledge we draw from as we strive to be excellent “Instruments in the Redeemer’s Hands” (to borrow from author Paul David Tripp)...

OUR COUNSELORS received their psychological training at Liberty University. Liberty is a globally-recognized Christian university that educates and trains spiritual understanding AND scientifically-researched, empirically-proven psychotherapeutic treatments. Furthermore, the State of North Carolina REQUIRES Licensed Counselors to complete 40 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) every two years, and only 15 of those are permitted to have a faith-based focus. Therefore, we are REQUIRED to pass exams for each course of CEU study that are STRICTLY clinical in nature (addictions, neurology, psychological disorders, assessments, etc.).

Lance Clark, MA, LCMHC, BC-TMH, QS  supervises and trains all OUR COUNSELORS in Spirit-led Counseling and Inner Healing Prayer Ministry, having himself secured the best Prayer Training available on the East Coast:

  • Graduated from all 4 levels of the School of Healing Prayer at Christian Healing Ministriesin Jacksonville, FL under President Emeritus Dr. Francis MacNutt and his Wife, Judith MacNutt, MA, a highly-experienced clinical psychologist. The MacNutts have been internationally known as authorities and authors/speakers on Inner Healing Prayer.
  • Received personal mentoring and training from Dr. David W. Appleby, a recognized authority and author on spiritual strongholds, a Pastoral Counselor, and retired Liberty University professor.
  • Is HeartSync trained (prior to implementation of HeartSync’s Certified Training protocol in JUNE 2018).

All OUR COUNSELORS are students of God's Word, reading for both personal and professional development.

Lance Clark, MA, LCMHC, BC-TMH, QS served for three years as a Biblical Counselor on-staff with a well-respected Biblical Counseling non-profit in Raleigh prior to entering Private Practice; during that time, he digested a lot of material written by Biblical Counselors like Paul David Tripp and Ed Welch. An intentional student of Scripture, Lance seeks out exegitical (verse-by-verse teaching with understanding of context, language, and audience) instruction from folks like Dr. Charles Stanley, Dr. Jack Hayford, and Dr. Carl Broggi - and then integrates what he has studied and learned into all Staff Trainings, so that all of our Counselors grow in their ability to understand and appropriately handle the Word of God in their respective Counseling Sessions.
