Bridget Manke.

WECTN therapist Bridget Manke


“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. For just as the sufferings of Christ flow over into our lives, so also through Christ our comfort overflows.”
—2 Corinthians 1:3-5


Three ways Bridget integrates Christ-centered, Bible-based truths into her current counseling practice:

1. The explanation of law and gospel
2. Forgiveness
3. Christ’s love for us; how it strengthens and empowers us to live for Him to love one another
