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.

I am a born again Christian and I love the opportunity to invite the Holy Spirt into the counseling process and then to see what God is ready and willing to do in your life and your problem. Jesus Christ loves you and wants a relationship with you. Together, we will incorporate bliblical principles and prayer into our counseling work in order to know him better and understand his will for your life and situation.

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.

There is a movement toward returning to the Bible for guidance to live a more fulfilling life. This oldest book in the world contains many answers we often overlook. There is wisdom in the parables that Jesus taught. There is insight and humility to be learned in Paul's letters to the churches. We can learn how to forgive, repair "spiritual emptiness," and experience peace in our souls when we open ourselves to the teachings of the Holy Spirit.

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.
