Counseling Services

In addition to Discipleship, we offer individual, marital, and family Christian counseling services.  For individual Christian counseling, Dr. Donna Lane uses a prayer-centered approach to counseling, with a goal of individual healing of the root causes of whatever issues brought the client to counseling, and from the wounds of the past.    

To schedule an appointment, contact Dr. Donna Lane at 770-845-8130.

Christian Counseling

Dr. Donna Lane's areas of specialty include recovery from trauma and abuse, grief, depression, anxiety, spiritual abuse, and toxic religion.  She works with adults, children, and adolescents.  Her approach was developed through prayer, and teaching from Jesus based on Genesis 3 (the consequences of the fall of man).  Dr. Lane assists her clients in uncovering which of three main types of lies they believe about themselves, about others, and/or about life:  the lies include Self lies (a belief that I can be like God, judging my value and worth), Shame lies (a belief that one is bad in their personhood, and an assignment of fault for that state of being), and Fear lies (a belief in control).  Once the lies are uncovered, Dr. Lane helps her clients take each lie directly to the Author of Truth through prayer, to listen and receive His truth to replace each false belief.  Finally, clients focus with God on learning more about Who He is, and on learning about who He made them to be.  Healing and freedom come through experiencing God's truth in a personal and meaningful way, and growing in closeness with and reliance on God.  

For marriage counseling, Dr. Donna Lane and Dr. David Lane co-lead the sessions, with the focus on developing a deeper relationship with Christ and with each other through prayer, communication, and mutual support.
