One of my favorite verses from the Bible is: be strong and courageous, do not be afraid of discouraged, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go (Joshua 1:9). Therapy can include integrating your Christian faith into the therapeutic process. Through Bible verses and meditating on scriptures, we can focus on how your faith can provide you with strength and comfort to master anxiety and live the life God created you to live.

I am a Christian, and I am very comfortable sharing that information with others. Although I may not agree with the specific beliefs of a particular form of Christianity, I do not believe that it is appropriate for me to judge, and I am accepting of differences. I am able to discuss the impact of our beliefs on our behavior; I am also able to encourage the use of our beliefs as a form of support.

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.

COVID-19 and the Coronavirus impact all of us. Christians are not immune to struggle & suffering. The close quarters of sheltering in place bring demands and challenges. Managing 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 online or phone Telehealth therapy a safe, confidential place to connect and talk honestly while receiving practical Christ-centered help for healing & growth. Get better help making sense of what happened & why, what was the response/reaction, and how it can be resolved with faith, forgiveness and restoration.

Learning what God's word says in the area of marriage, parenting, worry, sadness and relationships can be life changing. Applying what His word says is sure to be one of the most affective tools to live a life that will be God honoring and living in obedience to what God wants for our lives. Having a strong prayer life and someone to hold us accountable will allow effect change to take place that is consistent and long lasting. Realizing that God creates a God size hole in our hearts that only He can fill may be a game changer for many.

At Willow Creek my husband & I helped launch the DuPage campus, led the Marriage Matters ministry for 4 years, and have served in many other areas. My goal is as a Christian counselor is to create an safe place where you know you matter to God so that you can work through you pains, hurts, and relationship concerns.

Offering support and counseling under the guidance of Christ's word, your therapist will work with you to connect the principals in the bible with your personal life. You'll benefit from a reduction of symptoms, and a renewed relationship with Jesus and yourself. I believe that by allowing ourselves to ask Christ to help us with our problems, combined with spiritually focused, problem solving counseling, you can begin to find a renewed sense of purpose, spirituality and inner happiness.

As a Christ-follower I understand the role spirituality plays in all dimensions of life. In fact, one of my favorite verses contains these words of Christ, "I have come that they may have life and have it to the full." (John 10:10) In order to have a full life it takes work on God's part and ours. God's virtues of grace, mercy, and unconditional love are powerful motivators for transformation. As we embrace these virtues, God empowers us to live a full life. I offer Christian counseling to individuals, couples, and/or families who value their relationship with Christ and understand that he plays a primary role in the change they seek.

Even as Christians, and good Christians, we cannot make suffering go away. Being humans, we inevitably have to tackle the dark side of the human condition, perhaps struggling with our thinking processes, perhaps growing up with traumas in our families of origin, perhaps experiencing depression, anxiety, marriage conflicts, or something even more serious. As long as we're in this body, we’ll experience sufferings. Downtrodden, we want to rely on God’s grace to pick us up. And one way to access God’s grace is through holistic counseling – a safe place where we can gain new perspectives, shine new lights on our situations, feel lighter, more confident, and ready to move forward with life

Though raised Christian/Catholic, I now am a practicing Buddhist. I continue to carry, use and incorporate Christian beliefs to my personal life and my professional work. I find that Buddhist concepts can enhance all faith styles. For example, I frequently teach, if desired, mindfulness, meditation and laughter yoga concepts and strategies to clients and they find them very helpful (and fun !!)

I feel God connects me to people I am meant to help. My primary goal is to create a safe place for people to explore whatever is challenging them without fear of being judged and in complete confidentiality. By providing a safe place I can gently guide my clients through their pain and challenges to a place where they feel understood and validated. From that place we can begin to explore goals and work toward accomplishing them. I help people use their relationship with God to guide them to where they want to be and to where He intends for them to be. We enter this spiritual journey together.
