I have nine years of experience working in addictions therapy and over four years of experience counseling adolescents and families facing hardships including past and present stressors. In our sessions together, I will help you process your past to see how you have ventured to this present point in time. We will look for the ways you have overcome challenges in order to restore confidence in your ability to manage and navigate your life. I will guide you toward accomplishing your personalized goals and finding inner peace, joy, and self-love for your overall health and wellness—physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. I look forward to meeting with you, praying with you, and witnessing the Lord’s direction and restoration as He fills and heals your soul.
My Goal as a Christian Counselor
I offer a nurturing atmosphere where you can feel accepted and secure. As your counselor, my goal is to help you look at your life with compassion, optimism, and hope—not just for the future version of yourself, but for the present individual that you are now. My hope is for you to learn how to create, identify, and practice effective techniques to overcome the daily challenges you face so that you are able to enjoy lasting love, joy, peace, and freedom through Christ.
What I Offer in Christian Counseling
My prayer is for you to gain a genuine sense of hope and optimism through the therapeutic process. I may look for times when you were unable to manage your stressors, leading you to uneasy feelings. Acknowledging those feelings can allow you to reflect on those experiences and put faith in God to make personal changes. I also like to emphasize self-empowerment through supportive motivational interviewing techniques that highlight an individual or a family’s strengths. Discovering your strengths is a benefit in knowing what can motivate you or what does not motivate you.
My Approach to Christian Counseling
As a Christian counselor, I believe God is the Almighty and most powerful being, and that He can install His power and will within us and through us. I also believe that our spiritual, physiological, and psychological state of being may fundamentally be healed through your belief in Christ’s will and power. Together as we seek His guidance, direction, and determination, we can trust the Lord to fulfill His purposes in your life through Christian counseling.
