Vicki Asher Wills, PsyD, LCSW
Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Clinical Psychology Doctor
Within Driving Distance of Mission Viejo, CA
My Christian clients come to me because they want to work with a therapist who shares their biblical orientation to life and growth. I attended Focus on the Family's extended training on the integration of Christianity and psychology in the early 1990s to develop my approach to Biblical counseling. It is my experience that Christians are looking for the same kinds of changes in their lives and relationships that secular clients seek out, and along with these want to find God's purpose and meaning in their suffering. Finding and maintaing an eternal perspective while reconciling current life issues is the added dimension my Christian benefit most from.

It can be helpful to work with a therapist who shares your same beliefs and values. Incorporating your faith and trust in God in the therapy process can be an important factor in helping you, a loved one or your marriage experience the healing you're looking for. For clients seeking Christian Counseling, I offer to incorporate prayer and seeing what the Bible says about a particular issue.

Being in counseling requires an active effort on your part to examine many aspects of your life, including your spirituality. There is comfort in knowing that the therapist you choose has similar beliefs and values. Exploring your faith in God and how He works in your life is important when looking at any issue, along with your feelings about religion and your own unique faith experience.
