My Name is Jessica Berg, and I’m a Licensed Mental Health Counselor at our Bothell location. The world we live in can be very difficult, and my hope is to offer compassion and support for people during hard times. Whether you’re dealing with painful emotions or troublesome behaviors, find yourself in a difficult transition, need help working through relationship struggles, or just need someone to talk to, I offer you a safe place where you can find rest in the love of Jesus Christ. I welcome people of all faiths, backgrounds, and troubles, with a special focus on helping women and teens who struggle with anxiety, depression, eating disorders, relationship problems, and divorce.
My Goal as a Christian Counselor
I want my clients to thrive. As your counselor, I’ll work with you on building skills that will help you be your best, so you can continue to grow on your own. My hope for my clients is for them to gain a better understanding of themselves, how they impact those around them, and how to reach all that they were created by God to be.
What I Offer in Christian Counseling
I provide my clients with a safe, welcoming environment. I know how nerve-wracking counseling can seem at first, so my first concern is helping you feel less anxious while I get to know you and your needs. Having been through my fair share of struggles, my clients have someone who genuinely understands what they are going through. I offer you a place of compassion and hope, while also encouraging you to seek honesty in all areas of your life, so you can find the tools you need for overcoming challenges that hinder your personal, relational, and spiritual growth. As a Christian counselor, I also hope to encourage my clients to express their faith as a tool for healing, while meeting them where they are on their own, personal journey with Christ.
My Approach to Christian Counseling
With faith as the foundation for my counseling approach, I believe that Christ gives us solid ground to stand on during times of trouble. As a Christian counselor, in standing on the common ground of faith and understanding, I offer a non-judgmental place for my clients to come as they are now. Together we will work towards finding your unique path in Christ, so you can live your life as it was meant to be. With a client-centered approach, I pull from various counseling methods depending on each person. You might learn relaxation techniques or be given exercises to take home with you. In the end, the goal is to help you chart your own path with the Lord, so you continue to grow beyond our time spent together.
