Rachael Carr, PLPC, MAC

Provisionally Licensed Professional Counselor

3143 S Grand Blvd, Saint Louis, Missouri

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.

Christian Counselor

Angela McDowell, MS, LCPC, NCC, CADC

Private Practice Counselor

322 State Street, Suite 201, Alton, Illinois

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.

Sandra A. Shachar, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

225 S. Meramec Ave., Suite 432T, st louis, Missouri

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.

Licensed Professional Counselor

3134 Sutton Blvd., Maplewood, Missouri

I do not force my relationship with God down anyone's throat. In fact, if you come in and you don't want to talk about God for 2 years of therapy, fine by me. But I will say that there will be times when we're bumping around in the darkness of the emotional world and God shows up. He's the reason I'm here to help and He's reason I keep fighting for abundant life.

Licensed Professional Counselor

12166 Old Big Bend Road, Suite 204, St. Louis, Missouri

It is my belief that good and successful counseling incorporates the spiritual. We are whole people, with each part influencing the others. Treatment of any disorder (e.g. anger, depression, family conflict), therefore, is strengthened when it incorporates areas such as faith, hope, and change. Furthermore, when in the midst of difficult situations, reminding ourselves of God's power and goodness is a needed refuge.

Christian Counselor

Tyler Sparks, MA, LPC, NCC, CCSAS

Licensed Professional Counselor

12166 Old Big Bend Suite 204, Saint Louis, Missouri

I whole-heartedly and without shame expose my belief that Scripture comes from God and informs my beliefs and worldview. It is part of this belief that these words in Scripture are from God and beneficial for teaching, correcting, challenging and training, helping us move toward righteousness. These words have also personally brought me much comfort and I believe they offer this to you as well. With that said, it is not my desire to force this belief on anyone. Controlling others is contrary to everything else I do in my office. Rather, I trust that as you find integrity in what you do and what you say, you'll be that much closer to trusting God for all that he has in store for you!

Christian Counselor

Kelly Diller, LPC, MA

Licensed Professional Counselor

12882 Manchester Rd #204, St Louis, Missouri

Coming from a biblical worldview, I incorporate Christian and psychological principles in my practice. I work with clients regardless of the individual's faith background or spiritual beliefs. I do believe that emotional healing often happens through spiritual growth. I encourage growth through identification with values of love, grace, and truth. and I encourage individuals to wrestle with God through personal doubt and life struggles, as this helps build personal faith.

Christian Counselor

Judy Koehler, M.A., LPC, NCC

Licensed Professional Counselor

1715 Deer Tracks Trail, Suite 260, St. Louis, Missouri

When I went to school for a Master's degree in Counseling, I wanted a program that would integrate a sound, Biblical perspective with the best practices in counseling techniques. I believe Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis gave me this type of education. I seek to offer a Christlike perspective to clients who want their thoughts, emotions and behaviors informed by Scripture. We live as fallen creatures in a fallen world, but God changes us by His infinite grace. I have been privileged to see Him use me as an instrument of change in the lives of His people.

Christian Counselor

Karen Becker, MSW, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

11628 Old Ballas Road, Suite 214, St. Louis, Missouri

I believe that when providing Christian counseling it is imperative to do so with excellence. I have degrees in Psychology and Clinical Social Work from Washington University because I believe that an excellent education, in which the most current research is examined and practiced is critical. I also believe that God is the creator of the human mind and emotions, and no one knows them better than Him. I do not practice methods of therapy that are in conflict with Biblical principals. I integrate the Word of God and prayer into counseling sessions, as I believe that the Lord is the greatest Counselor, Restorer, and Healer, and I seek His insight into providing care for each client.

Deanna Self, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

St. Charles, Missouri

Christian Counseling is very helpful to people who are desiring guidance toward a better understanding of their problems in light of God's Word. While some people do not want Christian Counseling, some people really do and will not go to anyone who is not a Christian or to counseling that is not biblically based. When people desire Christian Counseling, the ultimate goal is growing in faith, knowledge and love for Christ. Christian Counseling is helpful because it views all of life, all relationships and all issues through the lens of scripture and seeks to apply biblical principles.

Christian Counselor

Perry Dodge, MS, MA, LPC, CPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Saint Charles, Missouri

Christian Counseling is a form of therapy which gives a person of faith the best of both worlds: 1) the best, scientifically proven approaches secular therapists use, 2) all completely guided by God’s Word and directed by the Holy Spirit. As a result of inviting a-God-who-cares into the therapeutic process, the client receives not only greater encouragement and hope, but also specific, practical solutions that decrease anxiety and stress and produce direction and strength, both to individuals and to families. As an active Christian Counselor for 12 years, time and again I’ve seen God’s Word and prayer provide a breakthrough even in the face of what seemed insurmountable challenges.

Licensed Professional Counselor

I believe that God gave us emotions, that's one of the ways He has made us in His image. But, somtimes our emotions become magnified and even out of control. My approach to counseling is from a Biblical worldview, meaning everything that is struggle or concern in the counseing session God can redeem. I believe true healing can only come from God. I have been a Christian for many years and I have been to seminary to study theology and I desire for my counseling practice to be a ministry to hurting people. I will never force Christianity on you, but I do enjoy talking about the hope we can have in God's healing hand, even in the midst of pain and sorrow.
