Liza Acosta Marriage & Family Therapist, LMFT, CTP (English) Insurance and Private
I believe that the first important step to any relationship is trust.
Establishing rapport with my patient is the first thing I focus on at the onset of treatment to ensure my patient is comfortable. Whatever the presenting problem is, we can work together through it if Trust has been established and protected.
Only then can the healing process actually begin. After that, the rest is easy! My name is Liza Acosta and I have been a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist since 2011.
I received my bachelor’s degree at Villanova University and then my master’s degree at Nova Southeastern University here in Florida.  I am a Qualified Supervisor through the state of Florida to Clinically Supervise all interns within the field.
Starting therapy can be scary and it is incredibly important to find the right therapist for you. I tell everyone that finding the right therapist is like trying on a pair of jeans. They are all cut differently and you may need to try on a few pairs before you find the right one.  Don’t be afraid to speak up! Everyone deserves Happiness including you.

Christian integration counseling

Christian integration counseling is a form of counseling that combines principles of Christian faith with traditional counseling techniques. It is rooted in the belief that spiritual and psychological well-being are interconnected, and that incorporating Christian values and beliefs into the therapeutic process can be beneficial for individuals seeking counseling.

In Christian integration counseling, the counselor may integrate biblical teachings, prayer, and spiritual exercises alongside traditional counseling approaches to address a person’s mental, emotional, and spiritual needs. The goal is to help individuals navigate life challenges, personal struggles, and relationships through the lens of their Christian faith.

Christian integration counselors often take into account the client’s beliefs, values, and spiritual background to tailor the counseling process to their specific needs. They may incorporate biblical teachings and wisdom to provide guidance and support, while also utilizing evidence-based therapeutic techniques to address psychological and emotional issues.

Some common areas where Christian integration counseling can be beneficial include marriage and family issues, grief and loss, addiction, depression, anxiety, and personal growth. By integrating Christian principles and values into the counseling process, individuals may find comfort, hope, and a sense of purpose in their journey towards healing and personal development.

It’s important to note that Christian integration counseling is one approach among many in the field of counseling and therapy. It may not be suitable for everyone, and individuals seeking counseling should choose an approach that aligns with their beliefs and personal preferences.

Christian integration counseling acknowledges the significance of spirituality in a person’s life and recognizes that faith can play a vital role in the healing process. It emphasizes the integration of biblical principles and psychological insights to promote holistic well-being.
In this approach, the counselor may encourage clients to explore their faith, examine how it influences their thoughts and behaviors, and identify ways to align their beliefs with their personal goals and values. Prayer, meditation, scripture reading, and other spiritual practices may be incorporated to provide strength, guidance, and a sense of connection with God.

The counselor in Christian integration counseling aims to create a safe and supportive environment where clients can openly discuss their faith-related concerns, existential questions, and struggles. They may help clients understand how their beliefs impact their mental health, relationships, and overall life satisfaction.

It’s important to note that Christian integration counseling is not about imposing religious beliefs on clients or using faith as a sole solution to psychological challenges. Instead, it seeks to integrate psychological theories and interventions with Christian principles in a way that is respectful and relevant to the client’s needs and beliefs.

Christian integration counselors typically undergo training in both counseling and theology to effectively blend psychological expertise with spiritual guidance. They are knowledgeable about various therapeutic approaches and techniques while also having a solid understanding of Christian theology and values.

It’s essential for individuals seeking Christian integration counseling to find a counselor who is appropriately trained, licensed, and shares a similar faith background or perspective. This ensures a better understanding of the client’s specific spiritual needs and facilitates a more effective therapeutic relationship.

In conclusion, Christian integration counseling is an approach that combines psychological insights with Christian principles to support individuals in their journey towards emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being. It provides a framework for addressing life’s challenges while nurturing and incorporating one’s faith in the counseling process.
