What if I told you…
That no matter what your situation,
No matter how hopeless your life may seem,
And no matter what has happened to you in the past,
You can start living a more satisfying and more fulfilling life today --
Would you believe me?
My name is Dr. Anthony Centore, and I’m the founder of Thrive Atlanta Christian Counseling. I may not know exactly what you are going through right now, but if you are having difficulty with any of the following life challenges, this article will explain how I can help you.
Persons of faith are often ashamed to admit that they have these problems. They may feel guilty because they are disobeying their church’s teachings in some way. They may have been taught that these problems are God’s just punishments. They may be afraid of being rejected by their community because they are not “strong” or “faithful” enough. In extreme cases, they may be afraid that they have succumbed to the Devil.
Remember the story of Job? His friends were convinced that Job had committed some awful sin. They believed that nothing else could explain the series of calamities that befell Job and his family. However, God eventually comes to Job’s defense and reprimands the so-called “counselors” for making false accusations.
If, like Job, others have made you feel guilty for feeling depressed or for doubting God, you have probably received advice from another well-intentioned but misinformed “counselor.”
It is completely natural for human beings to suffer, to doubt and to stumble. But many God-fearing people allow their frustrations and resentments to build up inside them. These problems can eventually become so unbearable that these people are driven to things like committing suicide.
So many God-fearing people are so afraid of sinning that they refuse to seek help, even though help is just an email or phone call away. And that is the real tragedy.
"Where can I find quality Christian counseling help?"
First of all, I want to congratulate you for having taken the first step toward seeking outside intervention. Maybe it has taken you months to realize that you need help. Maybe it has even taken you years. Asking for help is the first step towards recovery.
I promise you that the road will become less difficult from now on. Why? Because you no longer have to struggle alone. I, Dr. Anthony Centore, or one of the other professional counselors of the Thrive Atlanta Therapy team, will walk with you on your journey to experience God’s healing grace.
"No, thank you, I don’t need counseling right now."
That may be true today. It may even be true tomorrow, or next week, or next year. You may not have any serious spiritual, emotional or psychological issues right now. You may still be at peace with yourself and with God. But ask yourself this:
Do you really want to get to the point where depression, anxiety, self-hate and loneliness have taken over your life before you seek counseling?
God certainly doesn’t. God wants you to be as happy and healthy as possible, so that you can do His work to the best of your ability.
You see, therapy is not just for people who are trying to survive. It is also for people who want to thrive. Counseling can help you enrich your personal relationships with God, with yourself, and with all your loved ones.
What makes Thrive Atlanta Christian Counseling different?
There are so many therapy centers out there, so why should you choose Thrive Atlanta Therapy? Here are the top five reasons why our services give our clients true value for their money:
We put you first.
You deserve respectful, open-minded and professional care, which is why we can schedule your first counseling appointment this very week (see “No Waiting Lists,” below).
At Thrive, you are a person, not a disorder.
Unlike other counseling practices, we do not see you as just another set of symptoms to be examined and decoded. Neither do we see you as just another opportunity to turn a profit. Your disorder does not define you. At Thrive Atlanta Therapy, you are, first and foremost, a human being in need of help.
We do more than just “fix” problems.
We do not just “fix” our clients’ problems. We help them heal emotional wounds, make peace with the past, and create a better future for themselves.
Our goal is to help our clients improve their quality of life in lasting ways. As a result:
Our clients don’t just stop feeling pain and hopelessness; they experience happiness.
Our clients don’t just become sober; they become whole.
Our clients aren’t just calmed down; they achieve peace of mind.
Our clients don’t just learn to forgive themselves; they learn how to forgive others.
We integrate your Christian faith into your therapy.
Research has proven that a strong faith helps many people deal with the challenges and complexities of life. Moreover, studies have shown that religious individuals live longer and stay happier in comparison to the average American. This is why we make it a point to integrate Christian beliefs in our Christian clients’ counseling sessions. Rest assured that our counseling methods for Christian clients are always Christ-centered and Biblically sound.
We have a proven track record.
Every year, we help hundreds of individuals, couples and families who are looking for a method to solve their emotional and psychological problems—a method that is both based in Christianity and grounded in science. Many of our satisfied clients are part of one of the following groups:
We only hire the best counselors in the field today.

You don't have to do this alone. Let us help.
If you call and find that we are unavailable because, for example, we are speaking with other clients, all you have to do is leave a message. We will get back to you on the same day—and often within the hour.
