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.

If spirituality is an important part of your life and you would like talk about it in your therapy sessions, then Transpersonal counseling can be very helpful for you.

As a Christian therapist I understand and appreciate the importance of a Biblical focused world view when dealing with life's concerns. In an atmosphere of acceptance, trust, honesty and support, I seek to integrate a Christ-Centered theology with the very best clinical psychology has to offer. Because we are a wonderful integration of spirit, mind, body and emotion, I believe psychotherapy must attend to the complete human being just as Christ taught us through His example. Your relationship with God is the most central part of your life around which everything else revolves. Biblical based therapy can help deepen that relationship and help you find your needed answers.

Studio City, California 91604 | 818-351-5017

I hold a masters degree in psychology from Fuller Theological Seminary and am committed to the integration of faith and psychology. I, however, do not provide pastoral counseling. I am committed to walking with individuals and couples in any stage of their faith journey, believers and non-believers alike, to facilitate a process of authentic self-discovery and freedom. I am interested in how your faith has informed who you are what you are wrestling with today. The whole range of human emotions, longings and desires are validated and explored in my practice in order to participate fully in the journey of healing.

I am a graduate from Fuller Theological Seminary, with a Master's in both Marriage & Family Therapy and Theology. I do not consider myself a "Biblical Counselor" but a therapist who helps others in their journey of faith and spiritual development. I hold to the idea that "faith sees better in the dark" (Kierkegaard) and the need for guidance and counseling comes when we stumble in our faith.

I believe that a person must learn from teachings brought to him from his past when there is a crisis. I work with all who want to follow their own spiritual course this includes any religion or belief that when in a crisis can help my client be it the bible, or any other spiritual. Many Buddhists as well want to practice their meditative practices and find peace and serenity.

Faith and spirituality can provide comfort and meaning to those guided by their beliefs. I was raised in a Christian household myself so I have an appreciation for the values instilled by religion, the importance of tradition, and the strength of community. My approach to counseling is humanistic and welcoming of all spiritualities. Though I do not incorporate any specific pastoral counsel, I encourage my spiritual clients to draw on their beliefs during the counseling process.

I have attended 4 years of seminary and 8 years of institute of religion studies, in addition to my regular church going activities. As a psychologist I was taught all about how mental health affects the mind and body but I believe a vital piece to overcoming mental health issues is the spirit and soul. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to help you find your path, make sure it is aligned with your core values, and begin to make changes that will help increase your faith, spirituality, and well-being.

My Christian faith informs the way I view and practice counseling. God is the ultimate Counselor, and he is the one who brings about healing, change, and growth. I believe God uses counselors to help people experience the freedom, love, and joy he offers. Sharing openly about your faith and your feelings toward God is not only helpful but vital. I create a safe space for you to talk about all aspects of your faith journey--the good and the not so good. I rely on the Holy Spirit to guide and lead me so that our work together will reflect his purposes for your life and ultimately his Kingdom.

35 E Union Street Suite D, Pasadena, California 91103 | (626)464-1651

I became a counselor because I felt called to help people--I experienced pain, loss, and some very dark times in my life, and in each of these experiences I have also experienced God's love, mercy, and healing. I want others to experience this too, to know the hope and healing that I have seen in others' lives and my own. In times of suffering, God may seem very distant and even uncaring. But He does care and He wants to be there for you in your darkest moments.

Very often negative thinking, anxiety, depression, trauma, broken relationships and anger can get in the way of God’s plan for us to live wholly and fully. For those seeking a faith-based alternative to traditional therapy, Christian Counseling provides a safe, non-judgmental setting where you can wrestle with life challenges, while having the added support of exploring scripture and bringing it to bear on your current struggles. Whether you are seeking to discuss your faith in depth, or simply want peace of mind in knowing that your therapist “gets” your faith, I would be honored to help guide you on your journey to a fuller understanding of your challenges and how you can best meet them both as a human being and a person of God.

It is important to integrate your thoughts, beliefs, emotions and values in order to achieve a sense of well being. When one of those gets out of alignment it can create great internal conflict and even a spiritual crisis. The focus of therapy is primarily about your relationships and emotional life, however, if you choose to explore it, we will also consider the role your faith plays in who you are.

Many people struggle with their faith or struggle with a hurtful event that happened to them in their church. It is very meaningful to work through these events. My specialty is Panic Disorder and this causes much guilt in my Christian clients because they feel they "should" be able to "faith" their way out of it. As a fellow Christian, I feel I can help you deal with your faith issues, and it is not just because you do not have enough faith. Please use your faith, but there is also help.

My approach to Christian Counseling is to identify with people who value being a Christian. I was raised in a Christian home, have attended Bible College and Seminary, and am a licensed minister and a licensed therapist. I do utilize the theories of growth and healing from my mentors Henry Cloud and John Townsend, especially their books Changes That Heal, Boundaries and Loving People. You will beneift from my approach by helping you learn how to love and bond with God and others, where to set boundaries, how to resolve guilt, shame and badness, and learn how to use God's power and authority for your life. You will also benefit from learning how to let God fix others versus you doing this.

When we are hurting, we often seek Christ, our primary Healer, last. We helplessly flounder, grasping for healing via harmful people or things, when His healing is as close as His Word. Alas, we fail to tap into that power. My goal is to help you tap into that power. The same power that resurrected Christ from the dead dwells in us as believers, yet we fail to utilize that God-given power in our lives. Often it takes someone who has studied the Bible well to help you navigate its healing power. I am that person for you.

My personal approach to counseling is grounded in my own personal faith. God has a process from taking us from broken and hurting and redeeming us through a beautiful transformation experience. As believers we trust in the process of how God uses real people and relationships to help us heal. There is a plan and purpose for your life, together in the safety of the session we can create goals aligned with God's will.

The presence of God in therapy can be experienced when there is a more direct and open dialogue. As we become more present to each other a sacred space is created. The "space between" where we meet each other and the possibility of the Divine presence. This healing presence has power to transform you and your circumstances. As the philosopher Martin Buber once said,"Religion is Presence."

4035 E. Thousand Oaks Blvd., Suite 100, Westlake Village, California 91362 | 818-364-5646

As a 'preacher's kid' I have experienced the comfort and sense of direction provided by faith and a faith community. I have participated in Christian/Protestant communities most of my life. But I have also developed an appreciation for the variety and diversity of belief systems even within each church community. As a therapist, I appreciate the value of faith and respect each individual's personal understanding of Biblical doctrine. I can assist you in exploring the role of faith in your life and hopefully help you enrich your own faith. Finally, I suggest that you explore the option of finding Christian Counseling within your own faith (i.e., a trained counseling pastor, minister, etc.)
