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

Originally in training as a pastor, I sought to understand how the truth in God's Word affects mental health and contributes to healthy relationships. The wisdom in the Bible needs to be mined. But Christian counseling is not merely wisdom, it is knowing Christ. It is something real, an interaction that has to be experienced. The Bible gives us the guidance we need.

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.

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.

My Christian faith is integrated into my life and work, and who I am as a person. My years of experience in pastoral care in various church settings, as well as my graduate training at Wheaton College in Illinois, has enabled me to competently discuss, and explore issues of faith and application with a broad range of believers. I am familiar with many denominations and faith practices, and welcome including the Bible in our work together, if desired. Know that I pray privately for all my clients each day, and am open to including prayer in our session as well. Let me know if you have further questions about my faith and how you would like me to work with you.

As a Christian I have seen first hand how God and his principles provide transformation and redemption in my life and in others' lives. In my practice, I utilize a Grace-based, Biblical approach as I believe Jesus provides true change and freedom. Often, it is our inadequate understanding of how God views us that leads to problems of poor self- worth, anxiety and depression. Many times, we can get caught up with "doing" for God rather than "abiding in Him". In our work together we will explore your relationship with God and identify how to strengthen it as well as how to apply Biblical truths to experience true freedom and healing.

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.

I am a Christian and fully-devoted follower of Jesus Christ, and have been for over 34 years. If you are looking for someone who has studied the Bible for years, has read hundreds of Christian books and has a tremendously high level of passion to help others find God, ask tough questions about God, or is just searching spiritually and wants to understand Christianity at a deeper level, it would be my privilege to meet with you. I have personally helped dozens of people come into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. I am a Christian counselor, and I also enjoy counseling people who are spiritual 'seekers' and are simply curious about the things of God.

Why is it so hard to find a good therapist? Finding a therapist that has similar beliefs and values as you can be disheartening. I am a therapist who is also a Christian. I specialize in working with youth ages 3-25 who have experienced something stressful like a divorce, bullying, self-harm or abuse. I also work with adult relationships, and grief and loss. I practice from my values and beliefs, but use my knowledge of human behaviors to help families and youth. Spiritual components are mainly client-directed. Don't hesitate to call today to see if we are a good match!

As a practicing Jew I am able to offer counseling services that will align with the practice of Judaism. I am quite aware of the needs of the Orthodox community and of the importance of the concept of shalom bayis. I will help you restore that feeling through the use of standard counseling techniques. This is best done in an office situation, although it can begin online or via the telephone.
