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.

God is the source of all love, wisdom, and power. As we develop our capacity for greater spiritual intimacy, we find our true identity, the identity God intended us to live. I help you feel the love of God deep within your heart, and soul and body. I help you soak in the love, receive the love, and express the love. I help you become an open vessel, allowing God's wisdom to flow through you. I help you find your answers in a way that makes the most sense to you. I work with people of all denominations from a theology of grace and unconditional love. I am not judgmental. I love all people, like Jesus does.

I am a Christian. I respect and work with others who are not; therefore, professionally I do not impose my values onto my clients. It takes a leap of faith to allow God to work through his servants. When appropriate, I utilize Biblical scripture, teaching and some context from online sermons to help illustrate a concept or to encourage the client. I have used gospel music lyrics to similarly.

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.

What is Christian counseling? It is counseling that takes into consideration the truth that is in psychology and counseling theory as well as the full truth which is in the Bible. It treats each person with respect and freedom of choice. The counselor addresses not only the individual’s thoughts and feelings, but also their spirit. By addressing not only the emotional and psychological aspects of the person, but also incorporating the spiritual component can, not only lead to healing, but to wholeness as well, with the empowerment of the Holy Spirit.

My approach to Christians who come for counseling is to harmoniously apply Biblical principles and psychological concepts to the issue/s you are experiencing. This provides a way of being which balances the physical, mental and spiritual laws of God with a "down-to-earth" human experience which gives credit for each unique person and her/his capabilities. Included in this is correcting faulty views of the world, developing competencies in social living, and accepting oneself as a person of worth.

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.

For many Christians it is important that a counselor share the same values that they do. I take into consideration my Christian values in all areas of counseling while working with other Christians. It is important to remember that our Heavenly Father loves us unconditionally and that never changes. He loves us with all of our flaws and that love does not have to be earned. If we had no flaws we would not need Christ.
