Biblical Counseling

Discover the Truth of Who You Are

Sozo’s purpose is to supply professional Biblical counseling through life’s challenges. We believe that ultimate life and healing come through a vibrant and growing relationship with Jesus Christ that overflows into good relationships with self and others. We are committed to helping others reach these goals using sound Biblical principles. With this in mind, we are careful to compassionately come alongside each person and respect where they are currently in their spiritual journey.

At Sozo, we are Christians who share certain basic beliefs that Jesus Christ is a Personal Savior who died on a Cross for people’s sins. And it is only through a relationship with Him that we gain eternal life in heaven. We also believe the Bible was written through human instruments but was inspired by the Holy Spirit and is the infallible Word of God.

As the counseling process begins, we aim to be sensitive to each person’s spiritual concerns, experiences, and personal journey. Our counselors are equipped to include sound Biblical and spiritual principles in the counseling relationship. We believe that God desires that each person know the freedom and joy that comes from relating to God and others in a healthy way, and from realizing the truth of who they are as one created and loved by God.

All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work.” –2 Timothy 3:16-17 NLT

“The purposes of a person’s heart are deep waters, but one who has insight draws them out.”  –Proverbs 20:5 NIV
