Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How does TMC’s approach to counseling and recovery differ from other centers?
A: We blend clinical counseling with education and mentoring to bring about lasting, healthy change in our students. Healing from hurt is possible. In fact, that is God’s desire for us. The Bible guides us in recovery from abuse, past hurts, anxiety, addiction, depression, grief, communication, relationships, family issues, finances, grief, trauma, spiritual conflict, among other hurts. We blend cognitive and behavioral counseling along with discipleship (both one-on-one and in classes) to renew thinking, equip clients with tools they need to live a mature, healthy Christian life, and mentor them long-term.

Q: What is recovery?
A; Recovery is the daily process of seeking God’s wholeness in our life and allowing Him to heal our emotional wounds. We believe that without God there is no recovery, only disappointment. In recovery, we allow God to do for us what we cannot do ourselves, including healing our emotional wounds.
Q: What is an emotional wound?
A: An emotional wound is an internal scab of our soul that doesn’t heal without proper care Each of us has been emotionally hurt by someone we love or by circumstances in our lives. Unless dealt with, our emotional wounds can manifest in different strongholds or bondages, such as depression, anxieties, addiction, poor anger control, codependent behaviors, obsessive thinking, poor self image, loneliness, emptiness, resentment, lack of forgiveness, fear, relationship problems, and disconnection from God.
Q: With what church are you affiliated?
A: TMC is not affiliated with a specific church. Please see our Statement of Faith for more information.
Q: What is your view on the use of medications?
A: Biochemical imbalances can affect the emotions and thinking processes so intensely that spiritual and cognitive therapy alone are not totally effective. In certain cases medications can restore physical well-being, allowing the individual focus and energy necessary to work on the spiritual, mental, emotional and behavioral changes that need to be made in his/her life. When necessary, TMC refers individuals to qualified health professionals who assess and prescribe medications.
Q: Is there someone in your office who can prescribe medications?
A: No. We work with the client’s family physician or a local psychiatrist who prescribe and oversee the use of medications when they are needed. If necessary, we can refer a client to a health professional.
