Life in Abundance, Simpsonville, South Carolina 29681
Counseling for Christ followers is based on God's biblical principles, given to us for healthy and holy living. We were each created in God's image, created with purpose, created for His glory, and created with good works to do. He created each of us uniquely, with strengths and corresponding weaknesses, with needs that are both valid and real. When we learn and understand how to apply these principles for living we can begin to make sense of both our problems and our disappointments, and to look at them in light of what God says about us.

It is indeed good news ("gospel") that God loves you. Period. This is far more transformative, far more grace-filled, far more healing, and far more true than any person, belief system, community, church, or religion can adequately contain. I am a Christian counselor in the same way that Habitat for Humanity is a Christian organization: I have no intention of imposing any laws, or beliefs, or enforcing a "right" way to live. I welcome all people as clients, whatever religion, denomination, or lack thereof. My own faith, arising from Christianity, simply calls me to love all as I am loved, and to heal as I continue to be healed. Please contact me if you have any questions.

If you are a christian, then your worldview and identity is defined by your faith. God sees us as we are, He knows us, and loves us, meeting us at our need. As a christian, the holy spirit lives within you touching every aspect of your life. If you find you seek therapy for marriage, personal issues, or family struggles, depression, anxiety, grief/loss, trauma/ptsd, addiction, ect. your faith will be an intricate piece woven into the fabric of therapy.

Psychotherapist, Marriage & Family Therapist
16 Arlington St., Asheville, North Carolina 28801
I practice counseling that engages the spiritual life of my clients and that enables them to draw strength from God . The whole therapeutic process intends to honor the being and values of the client, sometimes reminding them of biblical parables and the context of Jesus as healer, but never tryng to steer them toward my personal beliefs. I have had great success using this approach, and have had clients be very comfortable with it. I should note that I also work with clients of other faiths and of no faith, who are aware that I am a Christian and a minister, but who also feel respected.

Licensed Professional Counselor

My approach to Christian counseling is from an integrative perspective. What this means is while I use clinical interventions and theory, it is with an understanding of a Christian worldview. While I was being trained as a professional counselor, my graduate coursework also included theology as my degree was awarded by Dallas Theological Seminary. This training provides proven clinical interventions in keeping with the Christian values of my clients. Seminary training has allowed me to understand the role of faith and a range of beliefs within the Christian worldview. If you have any questions as to how this would apply in session, please feel free to ask me.

Christian counseling is based on using solid Biblical principles to guide one's life. Clients will benefit by learning how to apply practical Biblical principles to their thought processes. Our behavior is a result of how we think. Right thinking produces right behavior. Biblical principles are right thinking, and when we learn to think with Biblical principles, our behavior will be right.

I believe there can be true complete healing when God is involved in therapy. I am willing to offer spiritual guidance to my clients when they request it. If they prefer not to have God involved, I respect their decision. I use Scripture and prayer in my sessions when the client informs me that God is very important in their life. God is a loving, forgiving God and I want my clients to feel that through me.
