God makes a way even in the most hopeless of circumstances.
“Even when their paths wind through the dark valley of tears, they dig deep to find a pleasant pool where others find only pain. He gives to them a brook of blessing filled from the rain of an outpouring. They grow stronger and stronger with every step forward…” (Psalm 84:6-7, TPT)
In our darkest valleys, God is with us. He is able to turn our places of weeping into a life-giving spring. Together we will search for the redemptive thread that God is weaving into your life. When we dig deep, we can find places of refreshing and healing.
My Goal as a Christian Counselor
Therapy is built upon a collaborative alliance in which we’ll work together on the issues that mean the most to you. My goal is to help my clients align with their truest and most solid self. I invite the best in you to rise to the occasion and courageously lean into the discomfort of growth. My role is to help you relate to yourself in a way that promotes healing, as well as to help you create the internal structure needed to increase your functioning in life. My hope is that you would find your ground and take up your space in the world.
What I Offer in Christian Counseling
For pain to heal, it must be processed. I facilitate a sacred experience for you to process what has happened to you. I bear witness to my client’s pain and hold space with them in their dark places. Together we honor the wounded self and celebrate who you are becoming. It takes courage to look within, confront pain, and engage in hard conversations. I will teach you to slow down, listen, and attune to what is happening inside so you can make sense of your internal world. You will discover the magnitude of your intuitive voice and cultivate a respect for your needs. I invite my clients to deeply connect to their inner core so they can unearth the brilliance within and fully show up in life, as well as empowering people to align with their integrity and core values so they can live a congruent and meaningful life.
My Approach to Christian Counseling
The atmosphere I seek to create is one of honor, permission, and freedom. I believe all people should be treated with dignity and respect. My therapeutic style is relational, educational, and oriented toward evoking the deep work of the heart. Therapy is a co-creative and organic process, where we unearth, discover, and build together. I approach counseling from a differentiation model, which means I support people in owning their individuality while growing meaningful relationships. I utilize psychodynamic, interpersonal, mindfulness, systems, CBT, attachment, and somatic therapeutic modalities. When I am with a client, the most important questions I seek to answer are, “Who are you? What do you need? What is most important to you?” As a Christian counselor, I create space for you to connect to God and invite Him into your healing process. I draw upon biblical truths and rely on the guidance of the Spirit.
