I offer counseling for children, teens, adult individuals, and couples. If you feel as if you’re in an unwanted cycle that you just can’t seem to break – whether personally or relationally – I would be honored to help. With empathy and curiosity, I will provide a biblically-grounded approach and perspective toward overcoming the challenges you face. Whether you’re dealing with anxiety, depression, relationship problems, abandonment issues, trauma, anger issues, grief, or other concerns, we will work to determine the root cause so you can find the peace and healing that comes from trusting in a God who is sovereign over all areas of our life—even our suffering.
My Goal as a Christian Counselor
My primary goal as your Christian counselor is for you to find the freedom that comes through putting your trust in Christ and integrating His Word into your life. My aim is to help you uncover the “why” behind the issues you’re dealing with, so we can take active steps toward establishing a plan for what comes next, relying on the Lord’s direction and wisdom to bring about healing and restoration.
What I Offer in Christian Counseling
In our sessions, I aim for a balance of active listening, asking key questions, prodding, challenging, suggesting, encouraging, and engaging in a dialogue about the issues you are facing. I see therapy as a collaboration where the best work is done when you have a question that demands an answer. So, what are you puzzled or curious about?
My Approach to Christian Counseling
Put simply, when we are in darkness, we need a light. God’s Word is the only true light in a world that offers many false and misleading solutions that ultimately leave us worse off. A Christian, biblical approach shines light into dark places. My belief in Scripture informs every clinical tool I have at my disposal. I do not aim to merely tack on Scripture to treatment, but integrate Scripture as a part of the treatment. For example, CBT is about telling ourselves “the most true and complete story”—the Bible gives us a whole deeper story of what “truth” means in our darkest hour. Your suffering is not meaningless. God is up to something in the midst of your suffering—let’s discover what that might be.
