What is Christian counseling? do i have to be christian to see a cca counselor?

Simply, professional Christian Counseling includes God’s view of our problems. He offers hope, healing and forgiveness. God created us to live full lives, with a purpose and peace. Men and women are made in God’s image and intended to be in right relationship with God, themselves and one another.
