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.

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!

It is my incredible privilege to be called to labor alongside the One and Only Counselor. He has designed me and through my experience and ongoing training He has equipped me to be a counselor. As I give myself to discovering and expressing His grace and truth in my counseling relationships, I am constantly amazed at how I get to observe His urgent, active, skillful and loving intervention in the lives of folks over and over again.

Licensed Psychologist

225 S. Meramec Ave., Suite 432T, st louis, Missouri 63105 | 1-888-542-1064

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

1715 Deer Tracks Trail, Suite 260, St. Louis, Missouri 63131 | 314 249-5444

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.

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.

As a Christian counselor with an additional theological degree, I understand how your body, mind, and soul are designed by God to operate as an integrated whole. I believe He created you to be loved and to love, and you long for connected relationships with Him and others that satisfy your God-given hunger for intimacy. Yet why does so much on the path of life seem to sabotage our growth? Why do we not experience the joy and fulfillment He promises? As a fellow traveler, I desire to join your path toward a deeply fulfilling Christian life. There are real reasons that you struggle in the ways that you do, and there is real hope for you to experience a joyful life in Christ.

5285 State Highway N, Suite 103, Cottleville, Missouri 63304 | 314-717-0319

As an Integrative Christian Counselor, everything starts with my view of all people through the same lens as fallen and broken people in need of grace for salvation from our sins. In session, since I believe the Bible has a lot to say about our current condition, I often use Scripture. However, it is one component. Along with developing a working relationship, I use many different theories and approaches to help people process through their current difficulties.

5988 Mid Rivers Mall Dr., St. Charles, Missouri 63304 | 636-229-5679

A biblical worldview in which God is the Creator of all men, has made mankind in His image undergirds my entire approach to counseling/change. This worldview places value on who we are as much as it does on what we think. It addresses the brokenness of all relationships and offers hope for healing. Foremost, it acknowledges that God as the essential relationship needed for transformational change to occur.

Private Practice Counselor

322 State Street, Suite 201, Alton, Illinois 62002 | 618-558-0296

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.
