Mental health issues, are real, common and treatable. Recovery is possible. Things that happen in the world around us, and the problems we encounter can easily feel like too much. We may feel overwhelmed, worried, low on hope. We may struggle to find purpose and meaning or to know how to take the next step when we can’t see the way forward. Over time we can develop faulty thought patterns, unhealthy mental habits, and unsound beliefs. Scripture and science agree that our minds can be a battlefield. But take hope! There is a way, and we want to help you navigate to a place of healing.
Life's hardships can feel like insurmountable roadblocks trying to trip us up and impede our progress. We may sometimes need help to remain grounded in the Truth that, God has “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future" (Jeremiah 29:11), and that, "We are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them” (Ephesians 2:10).
Still Waters uses the very best tools in behavioral science, and, for those who desire it, God’s holy Word to help you win your battles and help restore you to the life you were meant to live. You are the only you. No one else can do what God made you specifically to do. We want to help you rediscover your best you- the person you were made to be. Romans 8 verse 31 reminds us that “God is for us” and verse 37 tells us that we are "more than conquerors"! Battles in our mind, our body, our relationships, our circumstances will occur in this world. With proven therapeutic strategies that work and with God on our team we can go forward in confidence and with overflowing hope.
