I serve individuals and couples who are encountering psychological pain and difficult life situations and transitions. I have a specific passion for those struggling with pornography addiction, obsessive compulsive disorder, and individuals navigating through challenges and doubts regarding their faith. As your counselor, I am dedicated to supporting and encouraging your overall wellness—behaviorally, cognitively, emotionally, and spiritually. I will come alongside you to motivate, challenge, and strengthen you as you courageously go out to contend with life.
My Goal as a Christian Counselor
It is my hope that from our sessions, you will be able to clearly identify what is troubling you, establish practical and feasible goals which help to alleviate the pain brought on by the issue, and accomplish those goals. We’ll also work together to identify areas in your life where accepting responsibility may bring freedom, while also recognizing areas where relinquishing responsibility may bring freedom.
What I Offer in Christian Counseling
Your counseling sessions with me will be catered to your specific needs. I offer a nonjudgmental place where you can be open about whatever is on your mind and heart. You can always expect me to act in humility and open-mindedness. I am approachable and unsurprised by many thoughts, doubts, and struggles that others may find surprising. You can expect that I will be ready to listen, slow to speak, and gentle to challenge ideas.
My Approach to Christian Counseling
My approach is heavily influenced by behavioral therapy. Though theoretical exploration and insight are useful tools, I also strive to maintain a practical and realistic mentality. I believe it is important to utilize actionable steps that are not too idealistic.
Life change is possible without God. However, whether that change is actual progression is another question. I’m convinced that true progress can only occur by the work of the Holy Spirit within an individual. Faith is often an integral part of conversations with my clients depending on their comfort level. I also see many individuals and couples who prefer not to discuss faith at all.
