Staying Connected to The Vine

cathy downen blog hr

Welcome to The Vine, the official Blog of Christian Counseling Connection, LLC.

The Vine was named through the inspiration of Jesus’s words in John 15:5: “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” (NIV)

And, yes, Marvin Gaye’s iconic 1968 Motown hit song, later reprised in the 80’s by the California Raisins, “I Heard It Through the Grapevine” was another inspiration!

The Vine will seek to present information and inspiration, encouragement and exhortation, psychological insights and spiritual truths.

Blog posts will be written by various members of our collaborative group, Christian Counseling Connection, all of whom are professional, licensed counselors in private practice who love God and are on a mission to provide hope and healing in our community.

Our counselors operate from a Christian worldview, but we are also mindful and respectful of the individual values systems and diversity of all clients.

We seek to provide a Center of Excellence for mental health and wellness, using effective, evidence-based therapeutic techniques in an environment of caring and acceptance.

“I heard it through the grapevine . . .”

Blessings to you!
