About Living Well 

An ancient story tells of an encounter between a Samaritan woman and a Jewish man who met at a well. The man asks the woman for a drink. Puzzled, she questions why he’d cross the cultural boundaries separating Jews and Samaritans. As the conversation continues, the man not only reveals scandalous details about her life, past and present, but also compassionately shares that if she knew him, she’d be asking him for a drink of living water and thus thirst no more. From this encounter a hope emerges and she eagerly proclaims to anyone who will listen, “Come, see a man who told me everything I ever did. Could this be the Christ?”

Told in John chapter 4 of the Bible, this true story crosses cultural boundaries, reveals social taboos and moral failures, and more significantly explores the struggle to be known by someone who offers much more than a temporary thirst quencher.

At Counseling Center for Living Well, the client and the counselor journey through recovery and growth discovering hidden truths and painful stories, centrally trusting that the Man in this ancient story knows you well and has much more to offer than a thirst quencher.

Professional counseling addresses personal needs. In the same way the Samaritan woman came to the well to quench her daily thirst, clients come to counseling desiring relief from life stressors, escape from constant worry, a lift from the burden of depression, understanding from their partner, or preparation for marriage. Professional counselors are trained to help in these and other areas essential to daily living.

Christian counseling further addresses the desires of the heart at a deeper level of intimacy as it relates to the client’s relationship with God and eternal joy of a life lived well. We take a look at the needs presented and work together to experience more, the more Christ talks about as Living Water. We acknowledge that even as growth and recovery occur, thirst returns. There’s a stirring of hope in a personal need cared for and new life in an spiritual need revealed through the love of Christ.
