A Ministry of Restoration

Piggy Back Ride

The Purpose of Northland Christian Counseling Center is to offer a ministry which aids in the development of each individual's potential: emotionally, physically, socially, intellectually, and spiritually. This endeavor includes counseling and educational services based on the Word of God.

Northland Christian Counseling Center believes that God, through the Lord Jesus Christ, has all power to guide and carry people through the hurt, uncertainty, and pain of their lives. In the process of counseling and within the context of a caring community of believers, each individual client is offered healing, restoration, strength, love and comfort.

    Co-Dependency is a self-focused way of life in which a person, blind to his or her true self, continually reacts to others being controlled by and seeking to control their behavior, attitudes, and/or opinions, resulting in spiritual sterility, loss of authenticity and absence of intimacy. A co-dependent person is “addicted,” not to a destructive substance, but to a destructive pattern of relating to other people, a pattern usually learned from childhood in an abusive or non-nurturing home. Codependency holds a person hostage to other people’s behaviors, moods, or opinions, and the codependent bases his or her worth and actions on someone else’s life. It’s a terrible bondage.
