Rachael Carr, PLPC, MAC

Provisionally Licensed Professional Counselor

Have you ever felt frustrated, guilty, or even ashamed of feelings such as anger, bitterness, resentment, deep saddness, anxiety, or depression? Do you feel as though being a Christian means you shouldn't be struggle so much with difficult and negative emotions? You are not alone! Many Christians feel that having true faith means that we should not struggle so much with the pain and brokenness we experience in the world. However, your emotions and experiences are very real. I am passionate about helping believers feel the freedom to be honest about their pain, loss, and grief. I care about creating an environment where you feel safe to express how your pain and struggles impact your faith.

Sandra A. Shachar, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

I am a Certified Spiritual Direction and can work with those clients who want to address spiritual questions and concerns. These clients come from many different faith traditions - Muslim, Christian, Jewish or Agnostic, and I receive each with deep respect for their beliefs . As a Certified Spiritual Director, I am a trained companion for those on a journey of questioning and seeking. Unlike psychotherapy, the focus of SD is not on "fixing" something in your life, rather it is about deeping your awareness of the spiritual/sacred nature of being human - such as when we are aware of being connected to all living beings and being a part of something beyond ourselves.

I do not force my relationship with God down anyone's throat. In fact, if you come in and you don't want to talk about God for 2 years of therapy, fine by me. But I will say that there will be times when we're bumping around in the darkness of the emotional world and God shows up. He's the reason I'm here to help and He's reason I keep fighting for abundant life.

Christian Counselor

Angela McDowell, MS, LCPC, NCC, CADC

Private Practice Counselor

Within driving distance of East Alton

I am a Christian (since age 8) and am an active member of a local protestant church. I offer Christian, biblically based counseling when requested. Many of my resources are Christ focused and may include scripture verses. I do clarify this to those I counsel who may not be believers. If you present requesting Christian counseling, we will incorporate your faith walk and identify Christ as your primary supportive strength. Your own home church body may be an additional supportive resource for you. To ask questions or schedule an appointment, contact Angela McDowell.

Christian Counselor

Karen Becker, MSW, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of East Alton

I believe that when providing Christian counseling it is imperative to do so with excellence. I have degrees in Psychology and Clinical Social Work from Washington University because I believe that an excellent education, in which the most current research is examined and practiced is critical. I also believe that God is the creator of the human mind and emotions, and no one knows them better than Him. I do not practice methods of therapy that are in conflict with Biblical principals. I integrate the Word of God and prayer into counseling sessions, as I believe that the Lord is the greatest Counselor, Restorer, and Healer, and I seek His insight into providing care for each client.
