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."

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.

California Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

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.

You will also benefit from learning how to let God fix others versus you doing this.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Christian Counseling is important when seeking growth in the faith as followers of Jesus Christ in a therapeutic setting. By the use of counseling and connecting to the scriptures or prayer therapists can encourage the client not only during their current life challenges but in future stages of life after treatment has been successfully terminated.

As a Christian therapist, I believe that our hope is found in God. All of the problems we experience on earth can be seen through a spiritual lens. Even research supports the benefits of having faith during a difficult event in a person’s life as opposed to someone who is not a believer. I believe that God wants us to be able to draw closer to Him in the midst of a trial and that He offers us healing. My role is to partner with God in this process of healing for all of my clients who come in to see me. Therefore, I will happily incorporate prayer and scripture in our sessions if you’d like for that to be a part of our time together.

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.

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.
