Emmanuel (Noel) Villarivera is no longer with Tacoma Christian Counseling.
Each of us experiences times in our lives when pain, stress, confusion, or despair overwhelms and threatens to consume us, or when we find ourselves stuck in patterns that we can’t seem to escape, desiring change but unable to figure out where to begin. It takes tremendous courage to admit our need for help, and even more so, to ask for that help. And yet, this is often where healing begins – when we allow another person to come alongside us, help us to see what we can’t see, and offer a sense of hope for us when hope seems absent. It would be my honor to join you wherever you are in your journey toward greater emotional, relational, and spiritual health and freedom.
I would count it an honor and privilege to journey with you through the trials of life. As you seek to navigate through the issues that bring you to counseling, I will partner with you to find healing and hope. Life can bring many challenges, but I believe God wants to deliver us and bring us victory as we learn to lean on Him. He is constantly at work in our lives and desires for us to thrive! Through counseling and with His help, you can experience the joy and peace you desire.
I understand that healing can take time. With an open mind and acceptance, I offer a space for you to process your concerns and offload the burdens you carry. Together we will work to understand the root cause of your pain, then establish a plan change and recovery. Whether you’re dealing with anxiety, depression, trauma, relational issues, or other circumstances, it is my privilege to walk alongside you in your journey, helping you to discover ways to overcome your challenges and find strength in God.
With more than three decades of counseling experience, I offer compassion, empathy, and guidance during times of trouble. I’m here to provide support while you work toward healing and finding the path that God has set before you. Together we will evaluate your current situation and talk about what you hope to gain from counseling. We will then tackle your issues utilizing a combination of sound therapeutic techniques while drawing strength and guidance through faith and the Word of God.
My goal during our sessions is for you to feel that you are in a safe space and can take a moment to breathe. Change and growth can be hard work, but you will not have to face it alone. Even in the darkest areas, I believe that light can be found and that together we can discover the path forward. Although it is not always easy, there is always hope. With God’s help and proven therapeutic techniques, you can overcome the things that hold you back, become empowered, and believe the truth that you are valuable and loved.

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.

Counseling sessions with my clients may address the union between husband and wife, parent to child relationships, past family experiences, and other interpersonal dynamics.

We were made for more than just pleasure, knowledge, and hard work. We were created as images of God, to reflect His goodness to the world. Yet we all encounter seasons in which we struggle to see that God is good. Sometimes He can seem distant or judgemental, or unwilling to answer our hard questions and doubts. You may struggle to experience any real peace or joy, or perhaps you feel as though you just cannot keep away from that forbidden tree. The Scriptures speak of humanity’s perpetual failure and God’s continual restoration. No matter what you may be going through, Christ can handle your mess. It would be my honor to walk with you as you journey toward the hope, peace, and healing that can be found only in Him.

Whether you are confronting your fears, mourning a loss, finding your voice, or healing from trauma, I believe God is present and actively working on your behalf. The foundation of my work is based upon the belief that all people have intrinsic significance and every person’s story matters and is worth hearing.
God cares about you and is concerned with every detail of your life.

As a trained Christian Spiritual Director, I have a passion for helping people grow in their relationship with the Lord.

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.
Life can be hard. God did not promise us that life was going to be easy, but He does not call us to do it on our own. I believe that things can get better, and I will meet you where you are and hold on to hope for you when you cannot. My hope is that your growth will transform various relationships and areas in your life and help you become a better son or daughter, friend, parent, co-worker, classmate, or spouse. Together we will look to our God, who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine (Ephesians 3:20).
Life should be more than just pain and trials. Though they can serve a purpose, I believe that God has much more in store for you.

I work with clients to clarify goals, process hurts, and establish realistic plans to cultivate lasting healing and hope. I’d be honored to walk that journey with you.
As a counselor, I seek to be sensitive to my clients’ physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual condition during any given session, following their lead to determine which direction we’ll go with our conversation. I try not to push beyond their capacity, but rather gently guide and point things out as we travel together on the path toward healing and well-being. I provide a welcoming, judgment-free zone in which clients can share their burdens and feel heard and understood. I’d love to chat with you about how you can write a new chapter in your story.

Sometimes life gets the best of us. Sometimes we feel like God is far, far away or that He has forgotten about us. Perhaps you feel so overwhelmed with your responsibilities that you can do nothing but sink into the pit of despair and loneliness and can’t see a way out. At times in those pits we need somebody to reach down and offer us a hand to be pulled to safety; other times we just need somebody to come down into the pit and sit with us so we’re not alone. I want to be that for you. I want you to know that life afresh can be achieved, that healing and restoration are available, and that it is possible to climb out of the pit with the help of Jesus. Let’s start that journey together.

Whatever you’ve been through, I offer you a safe and understanding place where you can find your path to freedom. Together, we can discover lasting and positive change though the love, mercy, and grace of Christ.
Deciding to seek out a counselor can be difficult. Admitting you have an issue you can’t conquer on your own can be unbelievably humbling. We were not made to live in isolation, to figure everything out, or to get through all of life’s challenges alone. As one who has encountered storms in life, I can tell you that no matter how strong the wind and the waves may be, you can weather and overcome them through Jesus Christ. Combining my biblical and mental health training with my 23 years of experience in the field, I would be honored to come alongside you to help you find healing and restoration.
Our humanness can drive us to unexpected places, and as dark and painful as this may be, those same places offer us a chance to find our courage, strength, beauty, and grace. With the humbleness and unconditional love of Christ, I will encourage you to pursue freedom from unwanted thoughts, habits, circumstances, and conditions. I will challenge you to embrace a life of courage with God’s help as you seek to make positive changes in your life that will have lasting implications for good.
I find it profoundly fulfilling to work in a Christian context with couples and individuals in the field of therapy - and in the ministry of inner healing.

I look forward to facilitating moments of increased awareness, and I honor the bravery it takes to grow and make healing changes in life. We will work collaboratively to make effective changes and find places in your life that have been a sticking point - and my hope is that you will feel more at home in your life and better able to receive God's love.
I am passionate about working with individuals, couples, families, and children who are seeking healing and restoration. Whether you’re dealing with relationship issues, difficult family circumstances, trauma recovery, depression, anxiety, or other concerns, it would be my pleasure to help you reach a place of recovery, joy, and peace. As a Christian counselor, I believe tremendous growth and transformation can take place when God is involved in the work. No matter what challenge you are facing, I will walk with you on the path from brokenness to wholeness with Christ as our guide.
There is no “magic bullet” or easy shortcut for most of life’s problems. The degree to which we overcome such challenges is the degree to which we work on them. Christian counseling is one effective way of “putting in the work,” so to speak. If you’re looking for lasting positive change in your life, Christian counseling may be the answer. I will use my professional training and decades of counseling experience to help you overcome the concerns you face. Together and with God’s help, you can find a place of healing and peace in Him.
I desire to create an environment where you can feel safe, seen, and valued for who you are as an individual made in the image of God. I view our time together as a chance to learn, play, risk, heal, and come away impacted by one another. I employ humor and playfulness in sessions when it is appropriate, but also feel very comfortable with intense feelings of anger and grief. I am not overwhelmed easily by big feelings, so I will invite you to bring those in with you to our sessions instead of leaving them at the proverbial door.
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.
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.
I’m a strong believer in limitless possibility for redemption through Christ. I’m a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Clinical Supervisor, experienced in bilingual counseling, helping people through anxiety and depression, women’s issues, and trauma. I know what it’s like to live through dark, seemingly hopeless times. Everything God brings you through is shaping who you are meant to be. I’m honored to help you uncover ways to learn from your past and find healing and growth as you work towards building a new, Christ-filled future.
As a licensed social worker with over 23 years of experience, I offer a listening ear and faith in God’s ability to transform your life. My desire is for you to experience overall physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health and well-being. I will partner with you to identify the areas in your life that would benefit from change, and help you establish a feasible plan to implement those changes. We all have struggles of some form or another, and that’s when we need extra support. I am here to offer that extra support so you can live the life God is calling you to live in Christ.
Knowing when it’s time to seek counseling takes wisdom, courage, and humility. As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, I have experience in helping people who feel broken and unsure about the future. My goal is to help you seek positive change in all areas of your life. Anxiety, depression, aging, codependency, sexual abuse, and other traumas affect our relationships with those we want to love, including ourselves. I’m here to walk with you on your unique journey and welcome you to explore faith as a way to enhance your life and recovery.
As your counselor, I am here to support you through whatever conflict you are facing. Through our sessions together, I will teach you the tools you need to be the best version of who God created you to be. As a Christian social worker, my desire is to serve my clients as a vessel for Christ, using the gifts the Lord has given me to heal brokenness and restore hope, with God’s help. With integrity and compassion, I will listen carefully to your story and experiences and work closely with you to develop a treatment plan to meet your needs.
We were created for life-giving relationships with God, one another, and ourselves. Fear, hurt, and even cultural pressure often cloud our perception and we can become forgetful of the truth of who God is, who we are, and where we’re going. But the Lord offers us a tremendous exchange policy. He gives us strength when we come to Him in weakness. He gives us the grace to rise above tremendous difficulty when we give Him our trust with even the smallest seed of faith and hope. As your counselor, I will point the way and walk alongside you as a reminder that God promises to never leave us or abandon us. Together we will rely on the Holy Spirit and proven therapeutic techniques to find the hope, healing, and restoration you desire.
As a Master’s level mental health counselor, I help people find recovery from abuse, broken relationships, anxiety, depression, identity and purpose concerns, anger issues, sexual brokenness, and spiritual battles. Faith is the foundation on which I build my personal life and my Christian counseling practice. I believe that it’s never too late for you to make good choices and positive change for your life. Christian counseling will give you support and guidance as you work towards healing emotionally, spiritually, and physically, while solidifying your own connection and relationship with God.
