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.

As a Christian counselor with an additional theological degree, I understand how your body, mind, and soul are designed by God to operate as an integrated whole. I believe He created you to be loved and to love, and you long for connected relationships with Him and others that satisfy your God-given hunger for intimacy. Yet why does so much on the path of life seem to sabotage our growth? Why do we not experience the joy and fulfillment He promises? As a fellow traveler, I desire to join your path toward a deeply fulfilling Christian life. There are real reasons that you struggle in the ways that you do, and there is real hope for you to experience a joyful life in Christ.

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.
