While supporting you through life’s daily challenges, significant changes and events, and past and current struggles or pain, my ultimate goal is that you will begin to live more freely, enjoy life more fully, develop self-compassion, and gain a sense of healing and peace. I offer counseling for teens and adult individuals dealing with a variety of concerns, including anxiety, depression, trauma, ADHD, grief, anger, relationship issues, and much more. I believe each client, no matter their age or life experience, is the expert in their own life and has their own unique story to tell. I look forward to hearing your story and working with you to reach the goals you have for your life.
My Goal as a Christian Counselor
My goal as your counselor is to provide you with a caring, safe space in which you feel comfortable to be yourself and process your thoughts and struggles in your own unique way and at your own pace without pressure or judgment. By viewing and treating clients holistically – mind, body, and spirit – I will help you consider and incorporate all aspects of yourself throughout the counseling process.
What I Offer in Christian Counseling
I approach each counseling session and every client with empathy, compassion, and unconditional positive regard. I will actively listen to your concerns and needs in order to determine the best direction and structure for our sessions. I invite you to come as you are, wherever you are in your life and faith journey. As your counselor I will accept you unconditionally, listen without judgment, and develop a treatment plan for your specific needs to accomplish your goals.
My Approach to Christian Counseling
As human beings, our lives have multiple dimensions. Not only are we psychological, cognitive, and social beings; we are spiritual beings, as well. Too often the counseling process disregards the spiritual dimension of clients’ lives, overlooking key aspects of how clients derive meaning and purpose, as well as their primary source of comfort, strength, and wisdom. As a Christian counselor, I honor my clients’ beliefs and relationship with God, integrating them into the counseling process to the degree each client feels most comfortable. My faith also helps me understand and empathize when clients have feelings of spiritual disillusionment, abandonment by God, lament, guilt, and shame. As a Christian, I know that every human is broken, yet in our brokenness, God grants us all grace. As a Christian counselor, I incorporate evidence-based counseling practices and psychological theory while honoring and integrating my clients’ Christian principles.
