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 firstname.lastname@example.org.

At a time when Christianity is often attacked, it is difficult to find a place where individual and family conflicts can be worked through in counseling that is supportive of Christian beliefs. I was raised as a Christian and can understand and empathize with those who practice a Christian way of life, as well as a conservative view of life. I also understand how at times religious beliefs can come into conflict with personal strivings and need to be resolved. Mental health comes when one's religious beliefs and one's life are in harmony and one can live free of anxiety and doubt.

Many Christians have doubts about the legitimacy of their Christian salvation because they still struggle with many (if not all) of the same hurts and destructive behaviors that they suffered from before they were “saved.” They struggle with their belief in the power of Jesus Christ because the pain of addiction (e.g., alcoholism, drug addiction, sex addiction, pornography addiction), depression, anxiety, low self-esteem and past trauma is still very present in their everyday lives. I believe that through the power of God's grace and deliverance there is hope and there are tools to enable one to live fulfilled and healthier lives.

As a Jew who is aware that one of the most important Jews in history is Jesus... As a Jew who studies and understands both the Old and New Testaments.... you can be assured that, as a therapist, I have the deepest respect for your Christian beliefs. I am certain that a patient's belief system should be part and parcel of therapy. Hence, you can also be assured that, throughout my work with you, my understanding of your beliefs will allow us to connect on the deepest of levels, despite our differences.

Yes, it is true we carry God with us, but we also need to carry a developed Self in order to have the curiosity and discipline to carry out what we believe to be God's wishes. With a stronger Self we also can differentiate our own wishes and needs. We can identify and delineate one feeling from the other. This is vital as our feelings serve as emissaries of our needs. To be a "good Christian" or a "good Jew, you must first understand what it takes to make an even better YOU. That is where I enter the picture.
Kristin Schaefer Schiumo, Ph.D.
As a licensed psychologist, I am privileged to work with children, adolescents and adults as they strive to strengthen their relationships and make healthier, stronger and more successful emotional and behavioral choices. Over the years I understood that the Bible has much to say about how to change our thoughts, regulate our emotions, and treat other human beings. This knowing has shaped not only my personal everyday life, but guides how I use faith as a positive source of support and direction in my work with others.

If your religious beliefs are important to you in your family, community and work life then it makes sense to seek out counseling that is spirituality based. I am comfortable working within many religious belief systems and understand the meaning, importance and affirmation that a sound religious formation and philosophy can bring to a person’s life. If seeking spiritual counseling makes sense to you, whether due to a traumatic event/ loss or because you wish to find more peace in your life, then please contact me.
