Christian Counseling in Wake Forest, NC


As counselors, our faith influences our worldview. Thus, at Foundations Family Therapy, we are open and honest about our beliefs. They influence how we understand healing, pain, and hope. At the core of our practice are our Christian beliefs. It is this foundation that impacts our personal values. So, we bring those values and that belief into sessions as therapists.

But, we work with individuals with different perspectives and backgrounds. When you begin therapy, your counselor will meet you wherever you are in your faith journey. Some people want Christian Counseling that includes references to specific bible verses. This helps filter every major decision in your life through a biblical lens. But, other clients appreciate knowing that we share their values. You do not have to be a Christian, nor do you need to talk about your faith in sessions. You may choose to explore your faith in counseling sessions. If so, our Christian Counselors will provide a safe, supportive space for you to do so.

Child Counseling; Teen Counseling and Family Therapy in Wake Forest


Life is difficult. But, sometimes navigating the challenges of childhood or the teenage years can be hard.

Your once easy-going child may now be acting out. They're yelling, throwing tantrums, crying, having difficulty at school or with friends. Now, you're not sure what happened or what to do about it.


Child Therapy


Child therapy can help your child put words to their feelings so that they can communicate with you in a way that is more understandable and approachable.  Through Family Therapy you can also learn ways to talk with your child so that they feel loved, heard, and supported.  Child counseling can often end emotional outbursts, difficult behaviors, and relationship problems.

The teenage years can be tough to process for both parents and teens. It's often a season of physical growth, emotional immaturity, and hormonal changes. At the same time, it is a time for developing a new sense of independence. While some of these areas are embraced and enjoyed, others can strain relationships. In fact, they may even impact school, hobbies, and mood.


Teen Counseling

Identifying and expressing emotions in a healthy way can help improve relationships. Our team hopes to get your teen talking to you again. Therapists can also screen for underlying causes of emotions and behaviors. This may include abuse, bullying, depression, anxiety, and trauma that may be addressed.


Family Therapy

The goal of family therapy is to help the family unit express healing. Importantly, the goal is for every family member to feel respected, heard, and valued. Teens feel like they can talk to their parents in a safe space. With counseling in wake Forest, NC, teens explore their feelings and thoughts in a way they couldn't do before.
