Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern

Within driving distance of Ruskin

As a follower of Christ, I have long understood that God's purpose for my life is to lead & empower others to discover the very best in themselves and in others. The Lord chose to utilize me as a vehicle for spreading His word & helping others live Christ-centered, faith-abundant lives. Although not a pastoral counselor by training, I do incorporate faith-based principles into my practice of counseling individuals, couples, and families.

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.

Christian Counselor

Karen Allen, LMHC, CHT, CAMS

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

Within driving distance of Ruskin

As a Christian who wanted a Christian counselor but felt shut off when I sought counseling years ago, I understand the importance of having a therapist who understands Christianity is not simply an activity on Sundays and Wednesdays. I offer evidence-based practices integrated in biblical principles. It is my position that God's Word references many skills taught in cognitive behavior therapy. The Bible tells us to bear each other's burdens, to guard our hearts, to seek truth, to set appropriate boundaries, and to practice assertive communication. The approach I use is biblical, not denominational. I am also a certified Christian life coach.

Dolores Riley, Ph.D.

Clinical Christian Counselor

Within driving distance of Ruskin

In 1993 the Lord called me to "set the captives free". I obeyed this calling, received the tools (education) to fulfill this assignment and for eighteen years the Lord has been faithful in using me to minister freedom to those He sends me. My training has been "on the job" and the Holy Spirit is very powerful and evident in my ministry as He uniquely ministers to each person. I give all the praise, honor and glory to Him for using me as He has over the years. If you are looking for a spirit-filled Christian Counselor that has compassion, empathy and warmth born out of her personal experiences with suffering, loss, crisis, trauma, tragedy, etc., contact me.

Christian Counselor

Tom Petit, Ph.D., LMHC, CCMHC, CAP

Licensed Mental Health Counselors / Board Certified Coaches

Within driving distance of Ruskin

Christians are not immune to struggle & suffering. Marriages are impacted by demands of work. Infidelity occurs & threatens to pull families apart. Separation & divorce bring anger, frustration, & pain for children & adults alike. Anxiety, depression, stress, addictions & emotional discord pull at even the best of families. I provide a safe, confidential place to talk honestly & receive Biblically-based, practical Christ-centered help for healing & growth. Making sense of what happened & why, what was the response/reaction, and how it can be resolved with forgiveness is foundational. My passionate love for Jesus Christ permeates not only my personal life but also my counseling & coaching.

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

Within driving distance of Ruskin

As a Christian counselor, I use Biblical principles as a way of providing comfort and direction for all clients. I provide applicable scripture to individual concerns and will also pray with clients if they wish and are comfortable. I encourage clients to know that our Lord Jesus Christ loves us and is with us through all difficulties and triumphs. I understand that some may be facing a time in their lives where they are angry with God or don't feel God's presence; I am understanding of this and will provide the love and gentleness you need.

Heb 11:1 says "Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." Couseling takes faith and hope. God is the centered of that faith and hope through Biblical Couseling. The Bible clearly states how to live a life "Christ like" that is not full of heartache. But we are imperfect, and often let our own pride and selfishness guide our ways. This often ends in destructiveness. The Bible teaches about relationships. God wants to have a relationship with each one of us. Many of us don't know how to have a relationship with each other. Through Biblically based counseling clients will benefit by addressing relational issues psychologically and Biblically

You can draw even closer to God though expanding your intimate relationship with Him. Promoting the health of the relationship you share with Him and finding practical ways to invite Him into your life on a daily basis. Learning how to allow yourself to be led by Him who holds maps of worlds in the palms of his hands. Discovering that very intimate relational alliance where you use and develop your God given good mind yet know how to better cooperate with His unfolding in your life. I have a Bachelor Degree in Religious Studies from University of South Florida yet work more through teaching you how to harness your spiritual energy to grow and strengthen your spiritual connection to Him.

Christian Counselor

Steve Graham, PhD, DMin

Clinical Psychologist and Psychoanalyst

Within driving distance of Ruskin

Prior to my training as a psychologist, I worked as a pastor and seminary professor, connecting with the spiritual and emotional needs of people from all walks of life, with all types of challenges. While tragedies often challenge one's sense of whether God exists, or what kind of God exists, they also leave one seeking some connection with God. I believe it is His purpose to "proclaim good news to the poor ... freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free" (Luke 4:18 NIV). In our work together, I truly believe it is our Lord at work bringing about profound healing and help.
