"The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps." Proverbs 16:9 Biblical counseling is an approach to counseling that uses the Bible to address the issues in the lives of individuals.* The Bible teaches that our thoughts, motives, attitudes, words, and actions flow from our hearts. Biblical counseling addresses the heart, using the wisdom and approaches revealed in the Bible.

What is Spiritual Direction? The Christian life often entails times of spiritual uncertainty—situations in which we are unsure of God’s will, confused about what God is doing in our circumstances, or generally dry in our relationship with God. Spiritual direction is a safe place to explore your questions and concerns about your life with God.
A Christian spiritual director is a trained listener who will accompany you as you share about your spiritual journey, helping you to notice God’s presence and activity along the way, as well as your personal reactions and responses. Hospitable, confidential, and grounded in biblical truth, spiritual direction is a ministry that helps you grow in prayer and live into your calling as a follower of Christ.

Philosophy of Care
We are committed to providing a balance in our approach to counseling. It is our belief that all inner conflicts are both psychological and spiritual, because your mind, emotions, and will are always involved and because God is always present and His Word is always applicable.
It is our goal to provide the highest quality of care that meets your specific needs and honors Christ. We believe that our past helps shape our present beliefs and behaviors and also influences future beliefs and behaviors.
We will address some of the strategies that obstruct us, the foundational issues of our identity, and outline practical steps on how to live by faith, renew your mind, manage your emotions, and resolve emotional trauma of the past or present through faith and forgiveness.
Certified Biblical Counseling is NOT trained, authorized, or licensed to provide psychological treatment, or psychological diagnosis. Please seek a State Licensed Professional for this type of care. Referral options to outside professional providers are available upon request or given when counseling issues are beyond the comfort and or ability level of Single Step Consulting, LLC.
Confidentiality is an important aspect of the counseling relationship. We will carefully guard any information you entrust to us. All communication will be held in strict confidence unless you or a parent, in the case of a minor, give authorization to release this information. The exceptions to this would be:
