Christian Counseling For Marriages, Families and Individuals in Climax CO


There are many marriage and family counseling centers in the United States for people to seek and receive help for the various issues that plague us in our 21st-century world. Many of these centers are secular in their approach, with little to no religious focus. So what does an individual do who is looking for help from those who practice the Christian faith? The Christian counselors at Ranch of Hope assist, and they do it with Christian values as the primary guide. The center has over 24 years of experience with hundreds of client testimonials of satisfactory experiences.

The center specializes in a 5-Day Christian Counseling program that's intensive, in a getaway setting that is not only private but also relaxed, for individuals as well as couples and families. A five-day program is one of the best ways to work through issues and heal. The time-frame allows you and your counselor to work through your problems in a setting that is not rushed, but that provides just enough time to receive guidance before returning to your regular life.

Biblical Based Therapy in Climax Colorado

The atmosphere is crucial for getaway counseling centers that are retreat style. A person could be placed in a room, inside a building, with just a few windows and bright fluorescent lighting. This kind of atmosphere can be cold and unwelcoming and is not always conducive to the type of therapy that benefits a person. Instead, a beautiful setting that offers spectacular views is therapeutic and doesn’t add to whatever stress and heartache a person may be feeling upon arrival. Soothing images of nature help a person focus on healing and reaching positive conclusions. At Ranch of Hope, our therapists provide professional guidance in a center located in a beautiful mountain setting with private lodging for guests.

Many people who come to counseling retreat centers come from busy or hectic lives. Ranch of Hope is located beneath the Sangre de Cristo Mountains of southern Colorado in the high mountain valley. The setting was designed to provide a getaway location away from the hustle and bustle of the city. However, it is just one and a half hours southwest of the Colorado Springs airport. So getting to and from the center is not difficult. The natural and beautiful environment allows a person to reflect and heal while listening to the Word of God.

The small and intimate village of Climax, Colorado gives a guest all that he or she needs. Included in the cost of your lodging is access to a lovely 1900 sq. ft. apartment on site. The apartment has a full kitchen, a large living room with a fireplace, free Wi-Fi and Direct TV, and two bedroom areas that have a king-sized master bedroom with a private bath and shower. When you’re not inside the attractive apartment or meeting with your Christian counselor, you might be outside, taking in the views of the beautiful Sangre de Cristo Mountains, reflecting on what the Lord has always wanted for you and for your life. After all, coupled with the beautiful setting is a focus on the Lord. The goal of Ranch of Hope is to achieve all that God wants for yourself, your marriage or your family.

One of the benefits of the counseling center is that you can often receive help within just a few weeks from your first call. With this benefit, you’re able to get the help you need as soon as possible.

In addition to an intense focus on the Lord, two nationally recognized, comprehensive Personal or Marital Assessments are utilized, along with an on-line Emotional Assessment. These assessments help you and your Counselor pinpoint your hurt and focus on healing.

They are unique at discovering walls or blocks that inhibit personal growth.
