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.

I whole-heartedly and without shame expose my belief that Scripture comes from God and informs my beliefs and worldview. It is part of this belief that these words in Scripture are from God and beneficial for teaching, correcting, challenging and training, helping us move toward righteousness. These words have also personally brought me much comfort and I believe they offer this to you as well. With that said, it is not my desire to force this belief on anyone. Controlling others is contrary to everything else I do in my office. Rather, I trust that as you find integrity in what you do and what you say, you'll be that much closer to trusting God for all that he has in store for you!

It is my belief that good and successful counseling incorporates the spiritual. We are whole people, with each part influencing the others. Treatment of any disorder (e.g. anger, depression, family conflict), therefore, is strengthened when it incorporates areas such as faith, hope, and change. Furthermore, when in the midst of difficult situations, reminding ourselves of God's power and goodness is a needed refuge.

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.

Private Practice Counselor

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.

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.
