I truly view it as a privilege to be invited to walk alongside you in whatever situation you find yourself in, whether you’re dealing with anxiety, depression, parenting challenges, trauma, grief, or other concerns. I offer a non-judgmental space where you can share openly and honestly about the struggles you are facing. One of my goals is for you to feel heard and understood by me, and to know that you can take anything and everything to God, who will hear you and give you strength. Change and growth can be hard, but I strive to lead with the love of Christ and seek the best for you. I want you to grow in your identity in Christ and reach your full potential in the gifts and calling God has given you.
My Goal as a Christian Counselor
My goal is to provide a safe space for you to be honest with yourself and with God about what you are going through and help you make sense of it. Through our sessions, my hope is for you to experience peace, healing, and growth, and gain skills and develop insight that you can carry with you for the rest of your life. My ultimate goal is to point you to God – to remind you of God’s truths and our hope in Christ.
What I Offer in Christian Counseling
My initial goal is to connect with you and help you feel comfortable and safe with me. We are going to do some challenging work together, so establishing a base of trust and connection is important. I think the big picture is important, so I will spend time getting to know you and your story, and the context of everything that is going on. We will also collaborate on your short-term and long-term goals for counseling together. My approach is to initially provide skills to help you better deal with your concerns, then explore and identify the root causes of your challenges and work through them. I use prayer and Scripture in sessions as you are comfortable.
My Approach to Christian Counseling
Psychology and science offer us so much in ways to understand humans and improve our mental health. But my experience is that psychology can only get us so far. In Christian counseling, we have hope that the world does not provide and are able to come back to the truth of your identity as a child of God, that God is in control, that while God does not promise an easy road He promises that He is with us and has overcome the world.
