We currently have 2 counselors in Seattle Ballard
Psalms 107:29 tells us, “He caused the storm to be still, So that the waves of the sea were hushed.” If the waves of your life are crashing down around you, come seek shelter in Christian counseling. It saved me when I found myself caught in the storms and it can save you, too. I will work with you to first get your head above water and eventually teach you how to swim with confidence. With Jesus’ help, you can overcome your fears, let go of losses, and grow in God to walk on the water of your faith.
People are my calling. My job is to help people like you heal their lives, relationships, and families. With over two decades of experience helping tens of thousands of individuals, couples, and families, I offer empathy, a listening ear, and a healthy dose of wisdom. I am straightforward and often use humor in my practice. I believe it’s so important to be relaxed in this work. I work quickly and don’t waste time getting down to the business of healing people of all ages, backgrounds, genders, relationships, and cultures.
One of my greatest joys is to connect with people on a relational level. My multicultural background and experience enable me to relate well to numerous types of individuals. I enjoy integrating God’s Word into every aspect of life and believe that even the most dire circumstances can be transformed for good with the help of the Holy Spirit. One of my passions is to coach individuals toward reaching their personal and professional ambitions. I would love to meet with you to discuss how we can work together to achieve your aspirations.
I’m a firm believer in the limitless possibilities for redemption through faith in Christ. I’m a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Clinical Supervisor with extensive experience in bilingual counseling, and helping people work through anxiety, depression, women’s issues, and trauma. I understand what it feels like to go through dark, seemingly hopeless times, but I know that everything God brings you trough will shape you into all you are meant to become. Working with you is an honor, and I’m dedicated to helping you learn, heal, and grow as you work towards a future that is made new in Christ.
Helping couples heal their relationships by first better understanding themselves is what I do as a Christian counselor. I offer you support and insight for overcoming obstacles that stand in the way of forming lasting, fulfilling relationships with others and God. Whether you’re looking for marriage or premarital counseling, together we will strive to learn more about yourself, how you affect others, and how they affect you. With this knowledge, you can learn how to make healthy choices that will help you grow in all the relationships in your life.
As your counselor, I will listen to your situation with unconditional positive regard and empathy. Together we will discuss the reasons you’ve sought counseling and establish a realistic plan for you to enjoy lasting healing and hope. Whether you’re dealing with anxiety, depression, sexual abuse or trauma, grief, or some other concern, I believe counseling can be a wonderful tool to help you move forward to find the growth and positive changes you desire. My passion is to help people experience genuine wellness in every area of life. I’d be honored to walk that journey with you.
As a trained Christian Spiritual Director, I have a passion for helping people grow in their relationship with the Lord. I am not a health care provider or licensed counselor, but I do have training and experience in Christian spiritual direction, formation, and healing and intercessory prayer. I love coming alongside people who are struggling in their faith or lacking direction, including issues related to forgiveness, grief, loss, sin, fear, a lack of confidence, and relational challenges. It is my joy to join others in search of God’s fingerprints in their lives, and I count it a privilege to get a front row seat to what the Lord is doing. I am fluent in both Dutch and English.
As a Christian counselor, I believe our relationship with Jesus Christ, as well as faith and biblical principles, serve as the foundation of the therapeutic alliance. Whether you are suffering from depression, anxiety, trauma, or a clinical disorder, I provide a safe space in which you can identify and work through your presenting problems by using God’s Word and the power of prayer coupled with evidence-based practice as guidance. I am part of a multicultural family, and I work well with adults from various multicultural and socioeconomic backgrounds. Please note I work exclusively with adults age 18 and older. I look forward to serving you as you see God move and transform your life!
I believe the family unit is one of the most important aspects of our society. If family bonds can be strengthened, many other issues in this world will resolve themselves. As a Licensed Marriage and Family Associate, I seek to work with families to identify needs and trigger points and provide healthy solutions grounded in faith. Counseling sessions with my clients may address the union between husband and wife, parent to child relationships, past family experiences, and other interpersonal dynamics. If you feel as if you’re stuck in an unhelpful cycle, I’ll seek to help you to find peace.
You were created in the image of God for the purpose of bringing Him glory. Perhaps you are currently in a season in which you do not feel that you are bringing glory to God. Maybe you are even questioning whether you were made in His image. Many people reach a point in their lives when they feel stuck. They want to move forward, but they feel powerless and don’t know where to turn. Using biblical principles, warmth, and patience, I will work with you to seek lasting, positive change that will help you reflect God’s image and bring Him glory.
I believe in the healing, transformative promises of Christ. I also believe in His patience, and have had the privilege of seeing God’s grace work miracles in the lives of my clients. As a Master’s level Mental Health Counselor, I’m honored to act as a vessel for the Lord, one that will help you discover healing and growth. I help people recover from issues like abuse, depression, anxiety, broken relationships, spiritual concerns, and more. Whatever you’re going through, I offer you support, experience, and hope for a new, Christ-filled future.
As an experienced clinical social worker, I work with children, teens, adults, couples, and families. I will walk through your areas of concern with you as you process the myriad emotions attached to the issues. You are God’s beautiful creation, and He desires to make you more like Christ each day. He is the ultimate physician and healer, and I believe He will use our sessions to help you experience a joy-filled life that reflects Christ’s love no matter the circumstances you are enduring. Together we will work toward a solution that is focused on your strengths to create a more resourceful and resilient person grounded in Christ.
