As a licensed individual and family therapist, I am committed to providing a caring, open, honest, and judgement-free zone where you can experience God’s love and concern for you. I understand that coming to a therapy session for the first time and talking to a new person about your life can be very intimidating for some. That’s why I work to create a safe space for my clients to feel calm and at ease. Together we will explore the causes of your concerns, establish goals for treatment, and work to arrive at a place of recovery, wholeness, and peace.
My Goal as a Christian Counselor
My goals as a counselor are to help my clients feel safe and at ease in the therapy room, to help them process and verbalize their feelings in a nonjudgmental atmosphere, and to guide and provide options for them as they work toward their treatment goals. I hope my clients will gain the necessary tools for their toolboxes, but also leave feeling heard, validated, encouraged, and understood.
What I Offer in Christian Counseling
I offer an open, encouraging, judgment-free environment for my clients to share whatever is on their heart. I believe my clients are the experts on their own lives, so I often let them take the lead during our sessions. While I seek to guide my clients and provide options for their treatment, I don’t pressure them to talk about anything they’re not ready to discuss. With patience and respect, I listen to my clients’ needs and work with them to achieve the outcomes they desire.
My Approach to Christian Counseling
I love talking to my clients about their faith. Since faith is such an integral part of many peoples’ lives, it impacts our decisions, worldviews, relationships, actions, and much more. I believe it’s beneficial to have a distinctly Christian approach to counseling because it gives clients a safe space to talk about their beliefs without judgment or fear, and often provides increased motivation to work toward therapy goals. It’s such a blessing to witness the process of healing with God’s help. I’d love the opportunity to watch Him work in your life as well.
