As a Christian counselor and pastor for the past 30 years, I talk with people about matters of faith, the human spirit, and God. There are many important questions for us to consider as we grow in our faith and love of Christ. A most powerful question that I have had to consider is this, "Do I truly believe that Jesus Christ loves me?" Our answer to this one question - "yes," or "no" - will determine to a great extent how we feel about our selves, where we find meaning or purpose in life, where we get our own sense of legitimacy, and how close we will ever grow to God.

I received both my masters and doctoral degrees, along with related training, at Rosemead School of Psychology, one of the leading schools in the country focused on the integration of Christian faith and understanding of human nature with clinical counseling. Our faith can be an important, even central part of our lives. For many people having a therapeutic relationship where this part of themselves can be explored and where they can be open about their faith and relationship with God is hugely important. I understand this importance and so I provide an open, understanding space for addressing challenges, fears, and fostering personal and spiritual growth in a Christian context.

Christian counseling is a way of bringing faith based principals that matter to you into the therapy space. This is where faith meets science and works with it, not against. Mind, body and spirit are all connected and the spiritual component is essential to complete wholeness and restoration. I believe the Bible is the infallible an inspired word of God and pertains to all areas of life. We will incorporate scripture as well as evidenced base therapeutic approaches and take inventory in all areas of your life from a biblical perspective. How much integration is up to you. We will work together to help you live a life aligned to your values and beliefs.

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.

Our deepest wounds are often those that are at the hands of another person. Human brokenness is the root of our need for redemption. This holds true in therapy and growth work as well. When we encounter our deep wounds, we encounter our need for our Big God. Here, we are able to reconcile the broken our hurt parts of our ourselves.
