Many people often wonder whether counseling will benefit them. As a faith community, we believe in the importance of walking together, in unity, as a body of believers. Counseling is simply an opportunity to set aside time for personal reflection, to have a listening ear, and a professional who can guide you toward positive life-style change.

Counseling can help you look at difficult situations with more clarity. While the clergy team at Centreville UMC is available to provide short-term counseling, there are some situations in life that may better be served with support from a trained and professional long-term counselor. The resources below are available in the local community to help you find the support you may need.

The Center for Pastoral Counseling of Virginia was established in 1996. We provide professional counseling that is sensitive to relational and emotional issues, as well as to spiritual issues. Our counselors bring traditional psychological training to their work, with additional expertise in working with clients from a spiritual frame of reference.

Pastoral Counseling of Northern Virginia exists to extend the reach of congregations as they seek to fulfill their historic mission of caring for the hearts and minds of persons. PCNV seeks to provide the highest quality pastoral counseling services at an affordable cost to all persons regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation or national origin. We are informed by the wisdom of faith traditions as well as the insights of behavioral science in our understanding of and therapeutic approach to the healing of persons and their relationships. We not only see persons for whom their faith commitment is profound in shaping their lives, we also see persons who claim no faith orientation. We do not proselytize. We recognize the power of faith commitments in the shaping of self-understanding, of relationships with others, and of one’s emotional health. We encourage our clients to make use of their faith commitments as a resource for their own healing and growth.

Bipolar disorder, also known as manic-depressive illness, and depression affect millions of Americans. These disorders have a significant impact on those who suffer from these illnesses. Different from the normal ups and downs that everyone goes through, the symptoms of depression and bipolar disorder are severe, and they often leave individuals reeling, searching for solutions from theraptists, psychiatrists and other mental health professionals. Support groups provide an opportunity for those with depression or bipolar disorder to learn from others who have walked in their shoes, had similar experiences, felt the same emotions and gone through similar trials.

The Centreville Depression and Bipolar Support Group is DBSA-Northern Virginia’s oldest and most established group.
