The presence of God in therapy can be experienced when there is a more direct and open dialogue. As we become more present to each other a sacred space is created. The "space between" where we meet each other and the possibility of the Divine presence. This healing presence has power to transform you and your circumstances. As the philosopher Martin Buber once said,"Religion is Presence."

Sometimes living up to other standards become difficult. Making mistakes takes you ten steps backwards and you begin to isolate and become riddled with guilt and shame. Feeling like you've let everyone down including God and you don't know just how to get reconnected with who you know have always been there for you. I am empathic and spiritual and understanding that christianity isn't cookie cutter and not every Christian is the same. We can work together to help you find your independent relationship with God and yourself that allows you to be confident even in your mistakes.

I am a Christian and I am a psychologist. I do not separate these two identities, nor do I believe that you need to separate out your faith and spirituality from your present counseling needs and goals. In fact, I believe the values and beliefs that shape your worldview are integral in psychotherapy -- and I work to take this holistic approach in my therapeutic services. I earned my doctorate at a Christian university (Azusa Pacific University) and the integration of psychology and spirituality was a vital part of my training. I invite you to explore how your faith is impacting your current issues and challenges.

I believe that a person must learn from teachings brought to him from his past when there is a crisis. I work with all who want to follow their own spiritual course this includes any religion or belief that when in a crisis can help my client be it the bible, or any other spiritual. Many Buddhists as well want to practice their meditative practices and find peace and serenity.

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. I have been a pastor's wife for 15 years. I am trained in integrated counseling. I have Masters degrees in Theology, Clinical Psychology, and Intercultural Studies from Fuller Theological Seminary, and a Master's in Clinical Psychology: Marriage and Family Therapy from Azusa Pacific Universality. In addition, I am a professor at a faith-based institution.

Many people struggle with their faith or struggle with a hurtful event that happened to them in their church. It is very meaningful to work through these events. My specialty is Panic Disorder and this causes much guilt in my Christian clients because they feel they "should" be able to "faith" their way out of it. As a fellow Christian, I feel I can help you deal with your faith issues, and it is not just because you do not have enough faith. Please use your faith, but there is also help.

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.

In every moment of our lives, we are gifted to exercise the Free Will to choose. You may ask, "Choose what?" We are given the Free Will to choose either to exert our personal will to make our lives the way we want it to be or how we want others to be OR we choose God and fully trust that HIS/HER will be done for the greatest of my good and of all my brothers and sisters. This is the premise from which I provide Christian Psychotherapy to address the challenges in this earthly form and physical life.

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)

Faith based therapy brings Christian values into indivual, couples and family therapy. I am with the Episcopal Church Holy Nativity in Westchester. Reverend Peter Rood presides over the congregation. I believe in a loving God who created man in his image. I believe love, peace, acceptance and tolerance are essential qualities for any Christian to embrace and we will discuss the importance of these values in daily life, especially in relationships and marriage. Christ forgives. Forgiveness is essential to anger issues, family cutoffs, marital infidelity, children who act out, or are oppositional and defiant. A strong marital unit with faith in God is essential to effective parenting.

You don't have to deal with Jewish guilt alone! There are a lot of spoken and unspoken rules and expectations in the Jewish religion and culture, which can contribute to stress, depression and feelings of guilt. We can work on maintaining your religious and cultural beliefs while upholding your boundaries, dignity and respect. It is possible to feel connected to both identities without throwing one out.

I offer this service to inter-faith marriages (Judaeo-Christian) True spirituality expresses itself in the deepest and most profound aspects of our lives, that which affects us in the depths of our personal existence. Both in terms of the communities of faith to which we belong and the personal beliefs to which we are committed, we are guided and informed by the sacred values and spiritual teachings of our personal faith. As such, faith can be a foundation element of the help offered in therapeutic work. For whatever is important in determining the path of one's life must also be reflected in the practices of one's therapy.

Faith and spirituality can provide comfort and meaning to those guided by their beliefs. I was raised in a Christian household myself so I have an appreciation for the values instilled by religion, the importance of tradition, and the strength of community. My approach to counseling is humanistic and welcoming of all spiritualities. Though I do not incorporate any specific pastoral counsel, I encourage my spiritual clients to draw on their beliefs during the counseling process.

I am a graduate from Fuller Theological Seminary, with a Master's in both Marriage & Family Therapy and Theology. I do not consider myself a "Biblical Counselor" but a therapist who helps others in their journey of faith and spiritual development. I hold to the idea that "faith sees better in the dark" (Kierkegaard) and the need for guidance and counseling comes when we stumble in our faith.

Very often negative thinking, anxiety, depression, trauma, broken relationships and anger can get in the way of God’s plan for us to live wholly and fully. For those seeking a faith-based alternative to traditional therapy, Christian Counseling provides a safe, non-judgmental setting where you can wrestle with life challenges, while having the added support of exploring scripture and bringing it to bear on your current struggles. Whether you are seeking to discuss your faith in depth, or simply want peace of mind in knowing that your therapist “gets” your faith, I would be honored to help guide you on your journey to a fuller understanding of your challenges and how you can best meet them both as a human being and a person of God.

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.

I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who is a Christian. Life can have its ups and downs. However, I believe that it is our faith that gives us hope in the midst of trials. Sometimes we need someone to come along side of us to encourage us that we are not alone and to know that God has not left us. God can do the transformation He needs to do within us if we are willing. He can transform us in unique ways so that we can see that we have a future and a hope in Him.

My Christian faith informs the way I view and practice counseling. God is the ultimate Counselor, and he is the one who brings about healing, change, and growth. I believe God uses counselors to help people experience the freedom, love, and joy he offers. Sharing openly about your faith and your feelings toward God is not only helpful but vital. I create a safe space for you to talk about all aspects of your faith journey--the good and the not so good. I rely on the Holy Spirit to guide and lead me so that our work together will reflect his purposes for your life and ultimately his Kingdom.
