I understand that taking steps to becoming a mentally and emotionally healthier version of yourself can feel scary, challenging, or overwhelming. I consider it an honor to get to work with you through this growth process. I aim to make therapy a welcoming, comfortable, and positive experience for you. Each session will be catered to your personal needs as we identify your goals and make sure you accomplish them at your pace. I will walk alongside you as your advocate and support while you journey toward lasting hope and healing.
My Goal as a Christian Counselor
My goal as a counselor is to help people live healthier and happier lives – mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. I hope that my clients are able to gain better insight into themselves to understand and be confident in who they are. I also want to help them to identify the root of their challenges and to have a safe place to work through anything they need to address.
What I Offer in Christian Counseling
I offer a safe, comfortable space where you can talk about anything without fear of judgement or consequences. In session I’ll follow your lead for the theme of our conversation, allowing you to go where you need to go on that particular day. After listening to your needs, I will provide practical steps and solutions to help you initiate the positive changes you’d like to see in your life.
My Approach to Christian Counseling
One of the benefits of a Christian approach to counseling is that people who have faith in God can come to therapy being their true, authentic selves without having to edit themselves or wonder whether the therapist will understand their beliefs or actions. Clients can get the professional help they need without having to separate it from their core beliefs and values.
My faith informs my practice because God is the center of my life and my faith has made me who I am today. No matter who comes into my office, I listen to what God is saying and pray for my clients. However, I will always meet the client where they are both therapeutically and in their faith walk. I personally lean on Bible verses and God’s promises in my life and can share them with clients of the same faith.
