Resident in Counseling
300 N Washington St #102, Falls Church, Virginia 22046
As a Christian counselor, I hold to the truth that God is the real authority in counseling, that the gospel is essential and counseling apart from God is futile. I also believe that every person is valuable and have inherent worth and dignity because each of us have been created in the image of God. I have been trained to integrate the christian faith and counseling/psychology. I have also received training in biblical counseling and am well suited to work with you on a variety of faith issues that can occur when you are feeling overwhelmed, distant from God or faced with tragic life issues that impacts your view of God, your circumstance(s) or other people.

New Directions Counseling, 150 S. Washington St Suite 303, Falls Church, VA, Falls Church, Virginia 22046
As a Christian Counselor, I respect the dignity of all life, the spirit, all people, and the value of marriage and relationships. I have received training in how to integrate and evaluate the Christian client's Christian religious teachings, values, and faith and spiritual development into their mental health goals. I employ religious and spiritual assessments to understand my religious clients' use of both positive and negative religious coping and spiritual practices, which becomes important in identifying shame, blockages to faith and spiritual development, and understanding faith issues that may occur when faced with tragic life events.

As Christians, we are not immune to human pain and suffering. We read that “it was for freedom that Christ set us free” (Galatians 5:1, NASB), but sometimes we feel like slaves of anxiety, depression, relationship problems, or something else. So what does freedom look like for you? I invite you to begin a Christian Counseling journey, where your faith intersects with the tools of psychology in compassionate, judgment-free sessions. I learned to integrate Christian faith and psychology in my graduate training. Prior to graduate school, I worked for six years as a discipleship counselor for women in a local Christian ministry.
