Many people come to Grace Wellness Center because they are not experiencing the freedom they would like. They are burdened by past hurts, unable to resolve or forgive or sometimes are depressed and don't even know why. At Grace Wellness Center we offer Christian counseling for people with depression and help them find freedom in Christ. God desires for us to have abundant life (John 10:10) and provides the means to do so. We also utilize sound clinical practice integrated with Biblical truth to help people get unstuck and begin to live again. At Grace Wellness Center, the invitation is open to every heart that has been broken, let us help you!

Depression is anger turned inward. Living a meaningful life can be difficult if we are confronted with loss or trauma. Depression may be conceptionalized as a condition serving as a defense mechanism. The depressed individual has given up - so as to no longer be vulnerable to further failure or rejection. In this sense, he/she can not see future possibilities and therefore has lost hope. The inherent difficulty with living one's life to be "safe" is one can not grow. There can be no hope without possibility. Our approach is aimed at recovering possibility and growth in our clients. We will always meet our clients where they are and utilize a comprehensive approach building upon strengths.

When working with clients experiencing depression, I use a combination of behavioral activation therapy and cognitive-behavioral therapy. I work collaboratively with my clients and in the first session we establish achievable goals to work towards. My clients learn evidenced-based skills, strategies, and techniques on how to improve their mood, thought process, and behaviors.
