Counseling is a natural outgrowth of my belief in and desire to follow and be like Jesus, who loves you deeply and came to bring wholeness and abundant life to every individual. I am ready to join you in wrestling with questions of "where was God when..." and other painful dissonance created when crises and traumas hit. If you are looking for a therapist who will pray for you between sessions and who may understand your worldview and values, give me a call or email and let's see if I may be the right therapist for you.

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 work in the realm of spirituality and spiritual transitions, honoring all religions and religious beliefs. When a person cultivates and sustains healthy spirituality in their life, I find the effects benefit the person's mental and emotional well-being, which in-turn has a positive effect in the person's family, relationship(s), and private life.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I am a Christian therapist and I am more than happy to integrate Bible-based counseling with the traditional therapy process. 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. Christian therapy is different than pastoral counseling or lay counseling. My educational degrees, training, and years practicing psychotherapy are combined with Biblical principles to assist you in your path to healing.
