If you struggle with the damaging effects of trauma, loss, depression, anxiety, or just need help sorting through chaos, I offer faith-based support if that is what you seek, as well as sound professional guidance. I also offer specialized counseling for partners of sex addicts. As a Christian counselor, I approach each client with warmth and unconditional respect. Together we can work to heal hidden pain such as depression, grief, loss, and trauma. Whatever your needs, my hope is for you to feel safe and supported, and to guide you towards discovering your true self, healing wounds of the past, rebuilding your relationships, and building the life you want.
My Goals as a Christian Counselor
My goals are to help clients live more fully while connecting with their true selves, to help them peel back their layers of protection and take off their masks so they can rediscover who they were created to be. I hope my clients will gain their voice, make healthy choices, and commit to a life that embraces truth and rejects self-betrayal.
What I Offer in Christian Counseling
I hope that each client will feel peace when they step into my office, so they can feel comfortable and ready to work towards healing and growth. I bring my authentic self to counseling sessions, and I create an atmosphere of warmth and safety that helps build trust. The person you meet in my office is the same person my friends and family have come to know. I offer my genuine presence, engagement, and discernment. I do not sugar-coat, but shoot straight and attempt to call forth authenticity and truth in each client.
My Approach to Christian Counseling
My distinctive Christian approach simply means I treat my clients with love, respect, and acceptance, and I don’t judge them or diminish their dignity by telling them what I think they should or shouldn’t do. I view my role as a facilitator and catalyst for healing. Good counselors listen, offer real engagement, and consider it a privilege to join others on their sacred journeys. I work gently and boldly with people as they navigate deep pain, discomfort, disappointment, and a host of other emotions. My hope is for you to accept and nurture your emotions rather than avoid or medicate them. You will work to replace old, worn out, ineffective coping strategies with healthy coping strategies, and to replace maladaptive, negative beliefs with truthful, positive beliefs. We work at your pace, integrating faith to the extent you feel comfortable.
