As a follower of Christ, I have long understood that God's purpose for my life is to lead & empower others to discover the very best in themselves and in others. The Lord chose to utilize me as a vehicle for spreading His word & helping others live Christ-centered, faith-abundant lives. Although not a pastoral counselor by training, I do incorporate faith-based principles into my practice of counseling individuals, couples, and families.

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.

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.

You can draw even closer to God though expanding your intimate relationship with Him. Promoting the health of the relationship you share with Him and finding practical ways to invite Him into your life on a daily basis. Learning how to allow yourself to be led by Him who holds maps of worlds in the palms of his hands. Discovering that very intimate relational alliance where you use and develop your God given good mind yet know how to better cooperate with His unfolding in your life. I have a Bachelor Degree in Religious Studies from University of South Florida yet work more through teaching you how to harness your spiritual energy to grow and strengthen your spiritual connection to Him.

427 Lithia Pinecrest Rd, Brandon, Florida 33511 | 813-373-0315

As a Christian who wanted a Christian counselor but felt shut off when I sought counseling years ago, I understand the importance of having a therapist who understands Christianity is not simply an activity on Sundays and Wednesdays. I offer evidence-based practices integrated in biblical principles. It is my position that God's Word references many skills taught in cognitive behavior therapy. The Bible tells us to bear each other's burdens, to guard our hearts, to seek truth, to set appropriate boundaries, and to practice assertive communication. The approach I use is biblical, not denominational. I am also a certified Christian life coach.

Clinical Christian Counselor

In 1993 the Lord called me to "set the captives free". I obeyed this calling, received the tools (education) to fulfill this assignment and for eighteen years the Lord has been faithful in using me to minister freedom to those He sends me. My training has been "on the job" and the Holy Spirit is very powerful and evident in my ministry as He uniquely ministers to each person. I give all the praise, honor and glory to Him for using me as He has over the years. If you are looking for a spirit-filled Christian Counselor that has compassion, empathy and warmth born out of her personal experiences with suffering, loss, crisis, trauma, tragedy, etc., contact me.

Faith isn't something we "do" on our weekly holy day; for believers, it is, or should be, a guiding force that permeates every moment. I am commissioned in Lay Pastoral Ministry by the Roman Catholic Diocese of St. Petersburg, and this four-year process has prepared me to respectfully integrate faith into my work with clients when they wish to do so. Our studies included Hebrew and Christian scriptures, so that I may at least begin to serve the needs of clients who wish to integrate faith into the research-based therapies for individual, couple or family issues. Member, Network of Christian Counselors. Nonbelievers can be assured I will not address faith without your overt permission.

At Valiant Recovery, we strive to treat the body, soul and spirit of everyone who comes to us for help.

Our beliefs are Christian and we offer a variety of biblical based programs. We understand that every client will bring their own unique perspective to matters of faith and spirituality, and we encourage their right to decide for themselves what they believe. All spiritual counseling is optional and will be provided upon request. During the initial intake, clients are asked if they are open to spiritual direction.

The Bible easily integrates into the work as a therapist. The models used are easily developed and coinside with what the Bible says. Jesus placed a calling on my heart to help others and I believe I am fulfilling his plan for me. I have seen the awesome power of the Lord on session and how much more successful I am when he is involved with the clients life. Of course I don't impose my belief on a client but when a client wants to incorporate it, they have such a better outcome!

I embrace a holistic approach to healing. I fully believe that if the body is sick then the mind will follow, unless the mind remains strong. If the spirit is sick the mind or body can fall sick. When we have a strong spirit and our body fails, we are better able to heal, likewise when out mind fails, we are better able to heal. I don't press any particular Christian belief in my practice. I use Biblical references, encourage a great deal of prayer, a strong relationship with God, and I teach forgiveness. I am not the best Christian, not pious, I do my best. I used to be a youth minister and I have a strong knowledge of the Bible. Strong, lost, or wavering faith, I can help with your issue.
