Benefiting from Christian Counseling:
Many Christians want to be in therapy with someone who shares their worldview and values. I have seen how that makes a difference in therapy. My faith in God has been a guiding force in my life and has held me up when I was going through dark times that I didn’t understand. I am sensitive to the fact that different denominations can view things differently, I want to get to know your background and match my counseling to what you are familiar with. I can bring a Christian perspective into therapy, no matter what your initial issue is. Here are some questions and problems that you might relate to: ‘Why does God not hear my prayers and fix my problems?’ ‘How do I get back the close relationship with God that I used to have, now that my life is so messed up?’ ‘I don’t even feel like praying or reading my Bible, what do I do?’ Maybe you have been hurt by your church experiences. Maybe you feel shame about what you have experienced and don’t know how to get back to relating to God the way you used to. Maybe you don’t know what to do in the relationships that are hard for you. Maybe you think that God is angry and disappointed in you. Maybe you feel tired from trying to measure up. God is a loving and patient Healer and I strive to walk with Him and you as you journey toward healing.
Our lives are a gift from God and it is important for us to stay connected to Him and His strength. In addition to being a Licensed Professional Counselor, I am a Board Certified Professional Christian Counselor through IBCC (International Board of Christian Care). If you are looking for a counselor who has Christian values and follows Christian principles that can guide the counseling process, whatever your struggles are, I will incorporate that into therapy. Having someone who shares your faith to walk alongside you during a trying time in your life is invaluable. At times, there can be prayer and reading of Scripture during sessions if you want that
