Christian
Counseling

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

Psalm 46:1

He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

Micah 6:8

And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.

Romans 8:28

As a Christian, I understand the power of grace having experienced it in my own life. One thing I most enjoy about the therapeutic relationship is the opportunity to extend this grace to others and share the grace of the Lord with those who are struggling.

As we see in many examples in the Bible,
Jesus met people where they were at, but He didn't leave them there. Similarly, I seek to help people find the grace, truth, and hope in Christ that leads to lasting change.

 

Throughout my time offering counseling, and as I have matured in faith, my belief that God’s Word has the power to heal has only increased.  By utilizing clinical interventions from a Christian worldview and on the foundation of Biblical truths, you can receive the treatment that is best for you. 

I can personally testify that the power of grace has been foundational in my own healing and growth, as well as in my approach to helping others. I work with a vast range of people in their faith journey: from those who find their faith as a source of healing and those who would like to explore the "church hurt" they have experienced. My own Christian faith informs how I interact with all people, in part, by having respect, patience, kindness, and gentleness toward others.

How?

​In addition to the therapy approaches listed on the individual counseling page, which I will also provide here to the right, I also incorporate the following techniques when utilizing a Christian approach:​​

  • Bible reading and study

  • Intentional prayer

  • Meditation on scripture

  • Journaling 

  • Praise and worship music

  • Etc.

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. 

Philippians 4:4-8

Statement
of Faith

  1. The Scriptures, both Old and New Testament, to be the inspired Word of God, without error in the original writings, the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men, and the Divine and final authority for Christian faith and life.

  2. In one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

  3. That Jesus Christ is true God and true man, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He died on the cross, a sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures. Further, He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into Heaven, where, at the right hand of the Majesty on High, He is now our High Priest and Advocate.

  4. That the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ and, during this age, to convict men, regenerate the believing sinner, and indwell, guide, instruct, and empower the believer for godly living and service.

  5. That man was created in the image of God but fell into sin and is therefore lost, and only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit can salvation and spiritual life be obtained.

  6. That the shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the only ground for justification and salvation for all who believe, and only such as receive Jesus Christ are born of the Holy Spirit and thus become children of God.

  7. That water baptism and the Lord’s Supper are ordinances to be observed by the Church during the present age. They are, however, not to be regarded as a means of salvation.

  8. That the true Church is composed of all such persons who through saving faith in Jesus Christ have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and are united together in the Body of Christ of which He is the Head.

*These statements of faith do not exhaust the extent of my beliefs. The Bible itself, as the inspired and infallible Word of God that speaks with final authority concerning truth, morality, and mankind, is the final source of all that I believe.

For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.

Hebrews 4:12
