Christian Counseling

Jay Poland is first and foremost a follower of Christ. Primary in his work is the belief that “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” (2 Timothy 3:16,17).   His clients never need to fear that what he prescribes will conflict with what Scripture teaches.  It is his pursuit of the study of Scripture and God’s special creation (mankind) that uniquely positions him to walk with others and provide counsel.  He understands that complete healing can only take place when all aspects of a person’s life are addressed. Every client receives personally designed care to treat the entire person – emotionally, physically, and spiritually. With a broad range of professional experience and solid educational background, Jay Poland is able to help individuals (from adolescents through geriatric), couples, and families address the concerns and hurts that are affecting them emotionally, relationally, physically, and spiritually. Through developing an individual treatment plan, issues are dealt with effectively to help clients move forward in life and find the restoration they are seeking. People are finding ways to cope with ongoing health concerns, medical management care to address the physical component of their illness, action plans to help them turn their lives around in the right direction, new and effective ways to communicate with loved ones and co-workers, solutions to mending damaged relationships, improved self-image, the courage to stop destructive behaviors, the ability to give and receive forgiveness, new insights into their faith, and much more.
