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.

I will help you access all that is available to you in the Christian faith that can help you in your journey and relationships. Whether you struggle with faith itself, trauma, relational conflict, or other life issues, I provide a safe environment for you to struggle and be authentic without fear of judgement. I also support you in maintaining your autonomy and freedom of choice in your decisions.

As a Christian therapist I understand and appreciate the importance of a Biblical focused world view when dealing with life's concerns. In an atmosphere of acceptance, trust, honesty and support, I seek to integrate a Christ-Centered theology with the very best clinical psychology has to offer. Because we are a wonderful integration of spirit, mind, body and emotion, I believe psychotherapy must attend to the complete human being just as Christ taught us through His example. Your relationship with God is the most central part of your life around which everything else revolves. Biblical based therapy can help deepen that relationship and help you find your needed answers.

My approach to Christian Counseling is to identify with people who value being a Christian. I was raised in a Christian home, have attended Bible College and Seminary, and am a licensed minister and a licensed therapist. I do utilize the theories of growth and healing from my mentors Henry Cloud and John Townsend, especially their books Changes That Heal, Boundaries and Loving People. You will beneift from my approach by helping you learn how to love and bond with God and others, where to set boundaries, how to resolve guilt, shame and badness, and learn how to use God's power and authority for your life. You will also benefit from learning how to let God fix others versus you doing this.

I became a counselor because I felt called to help people--I experienced pain, loss, and some very dark times in my life, and in each of these experiences I have also experienced God's love, mercy, and healing. I want others to experience this too, to know the hope and healing that I have seen in others' lives and my own. In times of suffering, God may seem very distant and even uncaring. But He does care and He wants to be there for you in your darkest moments.

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.

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.

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 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 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.

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.

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)

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.

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.

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.
