I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who is a Christian. Life can have its ups and downs. However, I believe that it is our faith that gives us hope in the midst of trials. Sometimes we need someone to come along side of us to encourage us that we are not alone and to know that God has not left us. God can do the transformation He needs to do within us if we are willing. He can transform us in unique ways so that we can see that we have a future and a hope in Him.

As a Christian who is also a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, I chose to receive my undergraduate and graduate degree from a Christian university. I did this because I believe that God has designed all of the proven therapeutic priniciples and truly wants to help hurting people. This training has helped me to utilize a Christian World View to solve psychological problems. As most of my clients are Christians, I pray for them before each session and with them if they desire.

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.

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 faith-based therapist with my office at my church. Everything we go through is a spiritual challenge. Our ability to handle life is based on our connection with God. When we are tight, (in vertical alignment), we are able to handle our challenges and follow as He requires. When we not as tight, we fight, control, argue, decieve ourselves and don't allow God to lead us as He needs. Surrender is vital to Christian life and therapy.

Your faith is integral to your being and your relationships. When you need help with an important part of your life, you want your counselor to share your core beliefs. Checking your faith at the door is not an option. I have a deep faith in God and believe that lasting healing and growth come when He is invited into the counseling process. You needn't fear judgment or condemnation; I know God is a God of grace as well as truth. Call me today to begin your journey toward emotional and spiritual health.

I am a Christian therapist and I am more than happy to integrate Bible-based counseling with the traditional therapy process. For the Christian individual or couple, we can explore how your faith in Christ impacts your goals and decisions, whether or not you are drawing upon your faith as a resource, and what the Bible says about your concerns. Christian therapy is different than pastoral counseling or lay counseling. My educational degrees, training, and years practicing psychotherapy are combined with Biblical principles to assist you in your path to healing.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Old Towne Orange, 1107 East Chapman Ave, Suite 201, Orange, California 92866 | (949)648-7875

My doctoral studies at Biola University, working at various Christian counseling centers, and teaching at Christian universities have combined to help me understand and appreciate how psychology and theology are intimately connected. Often times our experience of God is intertwined with our experience of others, and both need to be explored and understood simultaneously. Even if your current struggles seem unrelated to your relationship with God, you may still seek a place where your faith is an integral part of your healing. I have extensive experience counseling those with psychological and/or spiritual concerns, so my clients do not have to sacrifice or ignore any part of themselves.

I am passionate about helping people discover self-acceptance and internalize God’s grace. I specialize in helping people who struggle with never feeling quite “enough" and are bombarded with an inner critical voice of shame. Self-compassion, self-acceptance and joy are available. "The truth, even though I cannot feel it right now, is that I am the chosen child of God, precious in God's eyes, called the Beloved from all eternity and held safe in an everlasting embrace... We must dare to opt consciously for our chosenness and not allow our emotions, feelings, or passions to seduce us into self-rejection". - Henri J. M. Nouwen

As a Psychologist who is a Christian, I understand how a person's faith tradition and spiritual experiences can influence their life. As a teacher of Integrative Therapy in the doctoral program at Azusa Pacific University, I've trained other therapists how to honor a person's beliefs about God, while working with their values, emotions, and behaviors. Symptoms occur when these fall out of alignment. We help people to find freedom from rigid standards without abandoning the core virtues and ideals that have defined their purpose and commitments. If requested, we are able to incorporate the disciplines of prayer, meditation, and scriptures as part of the therapeutic process.

There are certain advantages Christian's have over non-Christians in terms of overcoming problems. There is a framework that is developed through the reading and application of scriptures in your life that helps us connect to the ways, God the Creator has intended us to live. This enables us to produce the "Fruits of the Spirit" as mentioned in Galatians 5 such as love, joy and peace. The answers are in the bible, but sometimes it is difficult to apply it to our everyday lives and problems. It is helpful to have an expert to guide the process in releasing God's best for you.

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.
