Spiritual Care and Counseling – Pastor Bill Johnson

If a “picture is worth a thousand words” – here’s what I think spiritual care and counseling is all about (with your clothes on of course!!) and what I want to experience more of in my life and help others to experience more fully as well.  (It’s called the “Freedom Sculpture.”)

Freedom Sculpture

(The glorious freedom of the children of God Rom. 8:21.  For freedom Christ has set us free. Gal 5:1.  You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free. John 8:32.)

It’s about FREEDOM.

It’s about COMING ALIVE and living FULLY.  It’s not about ordinary life and surviving but learning how to thrive.

It’s about the “knowing the TRUTH that will set you free.” (Remembering the truth about who God is, who we are, and what life is about.)

It’s about moving from FEAR TO LOVE.

It’s about “being TRANSFORMED by the RENEWING of your mind.” (Spiritual Mind Training)

It’s about CHOICE, TRUST and a “perfect love that drives out fear.”

My Specialties:

My 3 main areas of focus for counseling are life, faith and ministry.

For people struggling in life…

Often our struggles are because of the way our mind processes past traumatic events.  I’ll help you overcome the trauma in your life – whether that’s with a big “T” or little “t” so you can be clear and free.

I don’t charge a specific fee for our time together but I do ask that you make a donation after each session. The going hourly rate for therapists in private practice without my additional credentials is approximately $100-150 an hour. But I leave it up to you to decide what therapy and counseling is worth to you and how much you can afford. (Keep in mind that meeting with me in the long run is cost effective because we can often get good results in fewer sessions than most.). Also remember that spiritually, giving and receiving are one in truth.
