I believe that the only way to truly understand ourselves and our purpose in life is if we better understand who God is, and what His will is for those He created and loves. I also believe that the Bible provides insight into how to live a life that pursues and pleases God, and how to navigate the trials and struggles we face. As your counselor, I will come alongside you to listen to your story, understand where you’re coming from, and work with you to incorporate a combination of biblical principles with proven therapeutic techniques to address your concerns.
My Goal as a Christian Counselor
My goal as your counselor is to provide a safe space for you to discuss what is on your heart and mind, and work with you to establish tools that will help you experience relief from your struggles and reach your life goals. Through this process, my hope is that you will be able to look at your life and your goals through the lens of what the Bible says, and align your will with God’s will for your life.
What I Offer in Christian Counseling
I offer a welcoming space where you can process the experiences you’ve had and discuss the burdens on your heart. We will set aside time in each session to check in on goals that were set in previous sessions, evaluate your progress, and determine the best next steps for achieving your goals. Depending on your comfort level, I will also create an opportunity for God to be present in our sessions by praying at the beginning and end of our time together and discussing biblical perspectives on what you are currently experiencing in order to align our hearts and minds toward His will.
My Approach to Christian Counseling
Some of the most crucial questions that a person can ask in their lifetime are “Who am I?” and “What is my purpose in life?” I believe the only way a person can understand the true meaning of their life and the hope that they have is through a relationship with Christ, and aligning their will with God’s will for their life.
I believe that God created us with a desire to know Him. The only thing that can fill that God-sized hole in our heart is a relationship with the Lord. Anything else that we attempt to fill this emptiness with is temporary, and can never lead to everlasting joy and hope. This belief informs my practice because I believe that the search for hope and joy can only come from understanding what our purpose is through God’s eyes, and aligning our pursuit of meaning in life with where He is calling us.
