We believe that counseling is at its best when it deals with your whole self – biologically, psychologically, socially, and spiritually. All are what make you who you are, but we have found that too often the spiritual aspects of our lives are overshadowed by the others, especially when it comes to the world of professional counseling. We are spiritual beings and attempting to process and solve our problems without confronting and involving the spiritual aspects of ourselves and our issues, more often than not, will result in a short term success without any lasting positive results. At Thriveworks Counseling, you’ll find that we don't shy away from the tough issues. Call today! 434-812-4009

Using a faith-based perspective allows for optimum coping with life's ups and downs. Many clients have benefited from a biblical understanding when addressing problems such as grief and loss, marital discord, life transition, and family conflict. I use my Seminary education to guide conversations as we, together, seek God's will in times of uncertainty. My hope is that we can discover where God is leading you and how to trust in God's faithfulness.

As a Christian, I believe it is impossible to fully understand human beings without understanding the Creator in whose image they are made. God has revealed so much about himself, about the way humans were created to operate, about effective and loving relationships between individuals and in the family. Among the riches of the Bible are its instruction in healthy, happy, godly living. In addition, we have the promise of the Holy Spirit actually working within us, providing great hope for transformation. Although some secular psychology has been antithetical to Christian beliefs, I use sound counseling techniques to resolve emotional and relational distress in a clearly Biblical way.

Christian counseling is….. … a safe, confidential environment where you can find support, discover hope, know truth, gain insight and receive Biblical direction and guidance. …an opportunity to address current conditions or long-standing patterns of confusion, pain, conflicts, various addictions and other life-altering issues in order to be strengthened, empowered and released to operate in true freedom and wholeness. …a covenant between counselor and client to pursue change or growth in the life of the client. …the process of becoming healthier emotionally, spiritually, physically and relationally by applying God’s uncompromising love and truth to every area of life!

It may come as a surprise but our motivation to excel and to provide the very best counseling service comes from a value system that emanates from a Christian worldview. Everyone has a core value system and it shapes our day-to-day living. “What do we live for?” “What gives life meaning?” “Why are we here?” “What’s it all about?” We want to be more than a counseling service that is “Christian counseling center” in name. And we also desire to be more than just one more mental health counseling group that approaches counseling from an underlying compassionate humanistic stance. Our desire is to be a reflection of the core values of Jesus in the way he approached his journey.
