As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC), I offer faith-based counseling for teens, adult individuals, and couples facing a wide range of concerns, including anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, codependency, ADHD, relationship issues, and more. Whatever your reasons for coming pursuing counseling, we will work together to enhance your level of self-awareness, explore your core conflict, and empower you to overcome obstacles so that you can live according to your personal values and God’s purpose for your life. I will listen to your story and offer an objective perspective to help you gain insight into your situation and take steps toward growth and recovery.
My Goal as a Christian Counselor
My primary goal as your counselor is to help you develop tools to overcome the obstacles you face. I aim to create a therapeutic space where you can feel free to let your guard down and be open about your struggles, hopes, dreams, losses, pain, and joy. My hope is that through our time together you will feel fully seen, known, and accepted, and that you will gain a sense of unrelenting hope for your growth and healing.
What I Offer in Christian Counseling
I offer a warm, inviting atmosphere where you can feel welcome, seen, and free to release your burdens. As an individual created in God’s image, you already possess the strengths you need to overcome the challenges you face. Sometimes we could just use a little support figuring out how to use the resources God has given us. As your therapist, I will help you identify those strengths and take the necessary steps toward accomplishing your goals and achieving your desired outcomes.
My Approach to Christian Counseling
I enjoy being able to integrate a Christian worldview in my sessions with clients who wish to incorporate their faith into counseling. I believe that ultimately our hope comes from Jesus, and I have leaned on that hope in challenging times in my own life. Because of this, my approach to counseling is to rely on Christ, the true Counselor, whenever possible in our work, and as my client feels comfortable, by inviting the Holy Spirit, prayer, Scripture, and/or discussions about Jesus into our sessions. I believe that it is so impactful for clients to be able to talk openly about their faith, integrating it into their counseling sessions.
