An Introduction

When using the term counseling, especially Biblical Counseling, the possibility of misunderstanding and preconceived ideas exist.  Center for Transformation and Training (CFTAT) does provide Biblical counsel by applying the life changing principles of the Word of God to the issues people are struggling with.  We are not “licensed counselors” nor do we represent ourselves as such. But if you are a believer in the power of the Word to transform your mind and ultimately your life, Biblical Counseling is a journey well worth taking.

Michelle has personally undergone Biblical Counseling through CFTAT for many years and can testify to the transformation it has brought into her life.  She is excited about offering that same experience to youth, families and others who are looking to walk in the abundant life Jesus promised.

“My husband and I are so grateful for CFTAT. We did not know where to turn. Our marriage was on the rocks and headed for divorce. For the first time we are sharing ourselves with each other and accepting each other because we know that we are accepted by our Heavenly Father. “

“Through CFTAT I am becoming competent to help the people in my congregation who are hurting, but I am so grateful that I have somewhere I can send those beyond my competency or beyond my time constraints to receive sound biblical direction for their lives. I wholeheartedly recommend CFTAT.”
