Christian Counselor

Prepare To Change, Psy.D., HSPP

Individual and Family Therapists

Within Driving Distance of Santa Ana, CA

As a Psychologist who is a Christian, I understand how a person's faith tradition and spiritual experiences can influence their life. As a teacher of Integrative Therapy in the doctoral program at Azusa Pacific University, I've trained other therapists how to honor a person's beliefs about God, while working with their values, emotions, and behaviors. Symptoms occur when these fall out of alignment. We help people to find freedom from rigid standards without abandoning the core virtues and ideals that have defined their purpose and commitments. If requested, we are able to incorporate the disciplines of prayer, meditation, and scriptures as part of the therapeutic process.

Christian Counselor

Susan Purrington, Psy.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of Santa Ana, CA

My doctoral studies at Biola University, working at various Christian counseling centers, and teaching at Christian universities have combined to help me understand and appreciate how psychology and theology are intimately connected. Often times our experience of God is intertwined with our experience of others, and both need to be explored and understood simultaneously. Even if your current struggles seem unrelated to your relationship with God, you may still seek a place where your faith is an integral part of your healing. I have extensive experience counseling those with psychological and/or spiritual concerns, so my clients do not have to sacrifice or ignore any part of themselves.

Christian Counselor

Joyce Stewart, LCSW

Holistic Health Practitioner, Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within Driving Distance of Santa Ana, CA

I have been a Christian since I was a young child, participating in many different denominations. Christians can range from very conservative to very liberal. When meeting with clients who want Christian counseling I do an initial assessment to see where on this continuum they are and then I provide them with Christian counseling appropriate to their belief system.

Christian Counselor

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Within Driving Distance of Santa Ana, CA

While most Christian Counselors pride themselves on how many Scriptural passages they can recite and how many links they can make from the Bible to psychological disorders, the Christian-centric work of Grey Matters International, Inc.is grounded in one principle: truth. For us, the work is more about truth and transparency of Christ's message and working on the natural laws of accountability and decision making that evolves from that. If one honors God's natural laws of reaping and sowing around the decisions one makes, one is indeed living Scripture to its fullest. We prepare the brain to better maximize the spiritual realities of Christ's words. Contact kevin@kevinflemingphd.com.

Christian Counselor

Heather Browne, PsyD, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Santa Ana, CA

I am a Christian faith-based therapist with my office at my church. Everything we go through is a spiritual challenge. Our ability to handle life is based on our connection with God. When we are tight, (in vertical alignment), we are able to handle our challenges and follow as He requires. When we not as tight, we fight, control, argue, decieve ourselves and don't allow God to lead us as He needs. Surrender is vital to Christian life and therapy.

Christian Counselor

Dr. Lynne, Ph.D., L.M.F.T.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Santa Ana, CA

Many Christians looking for psychotherapy or couple counseling want to have the input of another Christian, having reassurance that the individual helping them answers to the same Biblical concepts as they themselves believe. A therapist who also practices Christian Counseling will have a criteria aligned with the Bible and will have a spiritual accountability.

Christian Counselor

Daryl Temkin, Daryl Temkin

Ph.D., Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Santa Ana, CA

Many people going through challenging times and even misguided times are aided by biblical scriptural verse or religious philosophy. There are many times in life where scriptures and religious thought can help to restructure and influence one’s life choices. Biblical concepts speak to the soul of a person who has been raised or nurtured within a religious community and within a religious poetic narrative. My personal background is steeped within the first 24 books making up the Bible, the Tanach, the Five Books of Moses, the Prophets and the Writings, that which is the core of the Judeo-Christian religious foundations. Religious concepts that can be effective spiritual tools to help, enlighten and guide a client’s chosen path to recovery or to healthy...(view profile to read more)

Christian Counselor

Patrice Hooke, M.S., MFT

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Santa Ana, CA

I am a Christian and Spiritual person. I tailor my counseling approach to a Christian and/or Spiritual method when requested to do so. I pass no judgement on clients who believe differently. I feel my clients can benefit and heal immensely when they have a religious or spiritual belief system. I've found that clients who have lost a love one seem to find relief when believing there is something or someone larger than life itself. It can feel as though their loved one is now safe, comfortable and at peace.

I am passionate about helping people discover self-acceptance and internalize God’s grace. I specialize in helping people who struggle with never feeling quite “enough" and are bombarded with an inner critical voice of shame. Self-compassion, self-acceptance and joy are available. "The truth, even though I cannot feel it right now, is that I am the chosen child of God, precious in God's eyes, called the Beloved from all eternity and held safe in an everlasting embrace... We must dare to opt consciously for our chosenness and not allow our emotions, feelings, or passions to seduce us into self-rejection". - Henri J. M. Nouwen

I grew up in a Christian home. I highly respect the principles taught through the wisdom of the bible. I respect individuals and families who rely on their Christian values and principals and the power of prayer to guide them. In 1992 I began a relationship with a man who came from a Jewish background. He is now my husband and over the years we have been able to successfully integrate any differences. I have learned a lot about Judism through attending their many traditional gatherings. I have come to admire their family and educational values and their cultural loyalties. I am honored to be accepted and welcomed to their family. I welcome clients of all spiritual and religious beliefs

Christian Counselor

Ed Segawa, M.A., LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Santa Ana, CA

There are certain advantages Christian's have over non-Christians in terms of overcoming problems. There is a framework that is developed through the reading and application of scriptures in your life that helps us connect to the ways, God the Creator has intended us to live. This enables us to produce the "Fruits of the Spirit" as mentioned in Galatians 5 such as love, joy and peace. The answers are in the bible, but sometimes it is difficult to apply it to our everyday lives and problems. It is helpful to have an expert to guide the process in releasing God's best for you.

For the Christian individual or couple, we can explore how your faith in Christ impacts your goals and decisions, whether or not you are drawing upon your faith as a resource, and what the Bible says about your concerns.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

The truth in the bible helps us to move towards freedom in our lives. I incorporate biblical principles, scripture memorization and prayer as long as you find it to be a comfort. No preaching... Understanding the promises that God gives us helps to identify peace and connection with Him, and to truly feel the freedom that He provides. Ephesians 3:20 (NLT) Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.

Christian Counselor

Piper Glasier, MSW, LCSW, Psy.D

Psychotherapist/Psychoanalyst

Within Driving Distance of Santa Ana, CA

For many, it feels important to work with a psychotherapist that understands the inner workings of a faith system. Though there are many variations to themes within the faith community, feeling that someone can identify and knows the 'language' can feel comforting and reassuring. Also, there are often many old themes and patterns that stand in the way of moving forward with the growth of one's faith. Removing these obstacles and changing our perception of how we see God, can change our ability to feel accepted and loved. As a Christian, I can help in this important process.

Christian Counselor

Colleen Young, M.S., LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Santa Ana, CA

As a Christian, I believe the body, mind and spirit are interconnected and effect the way one understands & interacts in the world around them. Often I am asked the question, "what makes one whole?" my answer is both personal & Biblical. We are created body, mind & spirit. each must be regarded as important components of human existence, yet often the spirit is not discussed. I have the distinct honor and privilege of being on this path with my clients who desire a more biblically based approach to growth.

Christian Counselor

Rebecca Schwarz, LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Santa Ana, CA

As a Christian who is also a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, I chose to receive my undergraduate and graduate degree from a Christian university. I did this because I believe that God has designed all of the proven therapeutic priniciples and truly wants to help hurting people. This training has helped me to utilize a Christian World View to solve psychological problems. As most of my clients are Christians, I pray for them before each session and with them if they desire.

Christian Counselor

Vicki Asher Wills, PsyD, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Clinical Psychology Doctor

Within Driving Distance of Santa Ana, 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.

Cornerstone to many people is the power of their faith, the power of their spiritual practices and the teachings of their fellowship. Integrating the tools of your faith, your spiritual practices and the teachings you embrace helps your counseling sessions become even more healing and effective. Very commonly, faith, a spiritual practice and belief helps people with grief, guilt, hopelessness, depression, anxiety, stress, worry even anger. Life often is more meaningful and purposefully when the skills and remedies of psychotherapy also blend or integrate the power and guidance which spiritual teachings offer individuals, families and parents.
