As your counselor, I will help you work through any barriers to your progress and will greet you with positive energy and hope to create a safe environment where you can freely express yourself and your needs. Each client has their own pace of doing things and I will do everything I can to support your progress. Together we will identify and implement practical, proven techniques and methods to help you reach your goals and experience the healing and growth you desire.
My Goal as a Christian Counselor
My goals as a counselor are to walk alongside my clients, supporting them, collaborating with them, and encouraging them while they gain skills to manage their challenges and make progress in their journey toward healing.
What I Offer in Christian Counseling
I believe the key to making progress in counseling is to have a trusting relationship between client and therapist. Once that takes place, the next step is for me to learn what challenges you are managing, then explore options for redirecting what is not working. I will often assign homework so you can practice skills outside of sessions to help you work through problems. If you try things that do not work, then we can try other options you feel comfortable and confident using.
My Approach to Christian Counseling
Having God at the center of my life gives me direction and purpose. I have a clearer vision of how to navigate challenges in life that I would likely struggle with more if I did not use God as my compass. My approach to counseling is to accept each individual right where they are as God does and encourage them with hope in a world full of pain.
