As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC), I have years of experience helping individuals from various backgrounds overcome concerns including anxiety, depression, trauma, codependency and other relationship problems, ADHD, abandonment issues, and more. Together in session we will work to identify any unhelpful thought patterns and behavior habits, then establish practical steps to replace those with thoughts and actions that will result in a more purposeful, joy-filled, God-honoring life. I use a variety of proven therapeutic techniques depending on each client’s unique situation in order to ensure a personalized approach that will serve you well.
My Goal as a Christian Counselor
Often mental health issues such as depression and anxiety manifest from unresolved trauma and/or an inability to know or express our true selves. I enjoy helping people explore their authentic selves by asking the question, “What does it look like to be me?” By integrating your answers with the spiritual, emotional, physical, and social aspects of your being, I will help you live a more fulfilling life.
What I Offer in Christian Counseling
I offer a safe space without any judgment. I believe part of healing and learning to live well is acknowledging our true thoughts and feelings and being transparent about who we are and what we have done. With compassion and the love of God, I will offer nuggets of wisdom and often relate my personal experience if it is therapeutically beneficial along with practical exercises to help you reach your goals for therapy.
My Approach to Christian Counseling
I have learned we all need a moral compass, a guide, and that comes in the form of the Bible and the Holy Spirit. Left to our own devices, we will often choose unhealthy behaviors and coping skills which appear to be benign at the forefront. Satan is at work and we are in an intense spiritual battle, one we cannot win alone. We all suffer, but those who have God and a community of godly people in their lives tend to suffer well. With His help, it is possible to make even our painful experiences meaningful.
