I realize that selecting a counselor and beginning the counseling process is not easy. Whether you’re dealing with relationship issues, anxiety, depression, ADHD, grief, or other concerns, I would be honored to work with you. I count it a great privilege to journey with each of my clients toward overall personal growth with God’s help. I have years of experience working with teenagers, adult individuals, couples, and families and thoroughly enjoy the opportunity to watch the Lord work in hearts and lives through Christian counseling to bring about healing and restoration.
My Goal as a Christian Counselor
My aim as your counselor is to be a sounding board for you and an asset for insight and intuitive contemplation. I will encourage you to set goals for yourself, then I will help facilitate that goal attainment. When you successfully achieve your goal, my hope is for you to feel that you were your own change agent and that I was simply there for support while incorporating your beliefs and faith in the process.
What I Offer in Christian Counseling
I conduct counseling sessions organically and encourage you to dictate the flow of the session. Even if a pressing issue was processed in a previous session, I will support your desire to process through the psychosocial stressor of the day or week. You can expect me to ask, “How can I support you today?” to help you understand that you are in control of the process. Only when circumstances require me to take a more directive lead will I influence the direction that a session should go.
My Approach to Christian Counseling
The greatest benefit of a distinctively Christian approach to counseling is being aware and able to share with families, youth, and individuals that some answers are better explained and understood from a moral purview that is personal and intimate. I know that the faith of every individual is wholly personal with specific insights that may only make sense to the individual. I do not believe in cookie cutter Christianity. Because of this, my faith informs my practice in that everyone who shares in the process of counseling is unique and while their story may be similar to those of others, it is not the same and therefore must not be treated as such, just as the Lord is with us.
