Psalms 107:29 tells us, “He caused the storm to be still, So that the waves of the sea were hushed.” If the waves of your life are crashing down around you, come seek shelter in Christian counseling. It saved me when I found myself caught in the storms and it can save you, too. I will work with you to first get your head above water and eventually teach you how to swim with confidence. With Jesus’ help, you can overcome your fears, let go of losses, and grow in God to walk on the water of your faith.
Are you feeling stuck? Lost? Depleted? Unsure what you need but know that something needs to change? As your counselor, my goal is to meet you where you are at, help you gain perspective, and encourage you toward ongoing growth. With empathy and compassion, I am dedicated to your overall care and well-being – physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. I look forward to learning your story and watching as God works in and through our sessions together. Perhaps you’re experiencing relationship issues, challenging family dynamics, anxiety, depression, addiction, or some other trial that has left you feeling hopeless. I am here to work with you and for you as you gain peace and strength.
Helping couples heal their relationships by first better understanding themselves is what I do as a Christian counselor. I offer you support and insight for overcoming obstacles that stand in the way of forming lasting, fulfilling relationships with others and God. Whether you’re looking for marriage or premarital counseling, together we will strive to learn more about yourself, how you affect others, and how they affect you. With this knowledge, you can learn how to make healthy choices that will help you grow in all the relationships in your life.
As your counselor, I will listen to your situation with unconditional positive regard and empathy. Together we will discuss the reasons you’ve sought counseling and establish a realistic plan for you to enjoy lasting healing and hope. Whether you’re dealing with anxiety, depression, sexual abuse or trauma, grief, or some other concern, I believe counseling can be a wonderful tool to help you move forward to find the growth and positive changes you desire. My passion is to help people experience genuine wellness in every area of life. I’d be honored to walk that journey with you.
I believe in the healing, transformative promises of Christ. I also believe in His patience, and have had the privilege of seeing God’s grace work miracles in the lives of my clients. As a Master’s level Mental Health Counselor, I’m honored to act as a vessel for the Lord, one that will help you discover healing and growth. I help people recover from issues like abuse, depression, anxiety, broken relationships, spiritual concerns, and more. Whatever you’re going through, I offer you support, experience, and hope for a new, Christ-filled future.
One of my greatest joys is to connect with people on a relational level. My multicultural background and experience enable me to relate well to numerous types of individuals. I enjoy integrating God’s Word into every aspect of life and believe that even the most dire circumstances can be transformed for good with the help of the Holy Spirit. One of my passions is to coach individuals toward reaching their personal and professional ambitions. I would love to meet with you to discuss how we can work together to achieve your aspirations.
I believe the family unit is one of the most important aspects of our society. If family bonds can be strengthened, many other issues in this world will resolve themselves. As a Licensed Marriage and Family Associate, I seek to work with families to identify needs and trigger points and provide healthy solutions grounded in faith. Counseling sessions with my clients may address the union between husband and wife, parent to child relationships, past family experiences, and other interpersonal dynamics. If you feel as if you’re stuck in an unhelpful cycle, I’ll seek to help you to find peace.
I believe that relationships are the most important aspect of our lives, especially our connection with Christ. As a Christian counselor, my hope is to incorporate your relationship with Christ in the healing process, so you can experience wholeness and healing for all areas of your life. If you’re struggling with things that are keeping you from living fully, I’m here to meet you where you are and work with you and the Lord to find lasting, holistic solutions that fit your individual needs.
I’ve been in counseling for nearly three decades. While I welcome people with any therapy-related concern, I specialize in helping individuals overcome depression, anxiety, various addictions, and sexual abuse. I’m well aware of the brokenness that exists in each of us, sometimes to the point where it feels as if all hope is lost. One thing I love most about my job is the privilege of seeing Jesus Christ perform remarkable transformation and healing in the lives of my clients. I’ve seen Him do it countless times – and He can do it for you, too.
If you are facing difficulties in life or you’re feeling stuck and unable to achieve the growth and healing you desire, I am here to help. My hope is that my office will become a haven for you to find shelter and security from life’s storms—a place where you will feel comfortable to share your concerns, so we can work together toward lasting peace with God’s help. Whether you’re looking for guidance for yourself as an individual, couples counseling, family counseling, or therapy for your child or teen, I will provide the support you seek.
God can make a new way even in the most difficult circumstances. Every life is a story filled with chapters of happiness, tragedy, joy, sadness, and triumph. As a Christian counselor, I provide you with a safe, loving, and grace-filled space in which you can get comfortable and freely examine the pages of your life. Together we will read between the lines and explore the meaning of each chapter, uncovering the message God has buried in the spoken and unspoken words of your story so that you can turn the page on the past and begin a new chapter with Him.

Deciding to seek out a counselor can be difficult. Admitting you have an issue you can’t conquer on your own can be unbelievably humbling. We were not made to live in isolation, to figure everything out, or to get through all of life’s challenges alone. As one who has encountered storms in life, I can tell you that no matter how strong the wind and the waves may be, you can weather and overcome them through Jesus Christ. Combining my biblical and mental health training with my 23 years of experience in the field, I would be honored to come alongside you to help you find healing and restoration.
My name is Michael Unruh and I offer professional, faith-based treatment for sexual addiction. I’m a Certified Sexual Addiction Therapist with years of experience in helping men and couples recover from unwanted sexual thoughts and behaviors. Whether you struggle with pornography addiction, sex addiction, infidelity, love addiction, or other problems that hinder your ability to form healthy relationships, I offer a compassionate place for finding real solutions. Sexual addiction recovery is a journey that is full of ups and downs, but with faith and professional support, healing for yourself and your relationships is possible.
Life should be more than just pain and trials. Though they can serve a purpose, I believe that God has much more in store for you. My hope is to help you discover the wonderful joys and strength that lie beneath the pain and trauma you might be facing. Through Christ, we can conquer fear and find freedom, healing, and purpose. Whatever challenges you face, I offer you a safe place for you to discover all that God can do for your life.

As a counselor, I seek to be sensitive to my clients’ physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual condition during any given session. I take cues from them before determining which direction we’ll go with our conversation. I try not to push beyond their capacity, but rather gently guide and point things out as we travel together on the path toward healing and well-being. I provide a welcoming, judgment-free zone in which clients can share their burdens and feel heard and understood. I’d love to chat with you about how you can write a new chapter in your story.
