I create a safe space in which you can feel compassion, love, and validation. Using my professional experience and therapeutic assessment, I will develop a treatment plan catered to your needs that is based on biblical principles. As your therapist, I will become part of your support system so that you do not have to face your struggles alone. Our faith in Christ becomes the foundation of the therapeutic alliance, and a cord of three strands is not easily broken. We will work together to find practical interventions based on godly wisdom that fit within your current lifestyle.
My Goal as a Christian Counselor
As your Christian Cognitive Behavioral Therapist, I provide a safe, empathic environment in which to identify root problems and biblical solutions. God has a wonderful plan for your life! Together, we will work through the little foxes that spoil the vine, as well as the issues that arise when life delivers devastating blows. I believe that helping individuals, couples, and families in a therapeutic capacity is achieved through integrating biblical principles and clinical skills.
What I Offer in Christian Counseling
When I first meet with you, I will assess for the presenting problem, as well as collaborate with you to develop a treatment plan. This ensures that counseling sessions stay on track and serve your needs. I will then establish current support systems in your life (family, church, friends, etc.), and help you formulate a feasible, step-by-step plan to achieve your goals and the growth and healing you desire.
My Approach to Christian Counseling
The benefit of a Christian approach to counseling, as opposed to a secular one, is that spiritual issues that are the root of the problem can be identified, whereas in secular counseling only the symptoms can be identified. In Christian counseling, faith and biblical principles are not only transparent, but also serve as the foundation of the therapeutic alliance.
