Love your neighbor as yourself. As a Christian, my beliefs and faith instructs me to love others... not judge or condemn. As a psychologist, my training allows me to help others learn to make healthy choices for their life... not what others think they should do. I help people who want to make healthy changes toward their life goals while developing their spiritual connection and practicing faith-based living.

My definition of Christian Counseling is more about the counselor than the client. The way I respond to and care for my clients and the insights I give them are the same, whether they are an athiest or a pastor (I love working with both groups, and everyone in between). The difference is that I'm going to point the pastor to the Scripture that backs up what I just said. It is my aim to always be prepared to back up my statements, actions, and theories with what the Bible says, whether anyone around me notices or not. I rely on God's direction with clients and give Him the credit for any success "I" have had with them.

Bad things can happen to good people, and that can raise a lot of spiritual questions. Why? That's the ultimate question, and the hardest spiritual question to answer. Reading Scripture doesn't necessarily help you work out your questions, and it may not go far enough to help you know how to help your kid out, or improve your relationships, or create the joy you long for, and it really doesn't tell us how to divorce. This is a private place to process feelings, talk questions through, gain understanding, and to be fully human and accepted and respected, despite your struggles. Proverbs tells us repeatedly, to get understanding. Understanding is the way to acceptance, forgiveness, healing.

Spirituality has been referred to as ‘the forgotten dimension’ of mental health care. It has been described as being ‘where the deeply personal meets the universal’; a sacred realm of human experience. Spirituality is concerned with people finding meaning and purpose in their lives, as well as the sense of belonging, of community. Because spirituality comes into focus in times of stress, suffering, physical and mental illness, loss, dying and bereavement, it is important not only in Christian Counseling but also throughout all of medicine. Spirituality has often been called ‘a quality that strives for inspiration, reverence, awe, meaning and purpose, even in those who do not believe in God’.....

Christian counseling offers a chance for us to find our truth that is based on the bible's truths. We need to dream the dream that the Lord has for us. Let me say that again," we need to dream the dream the Lord has for us." I can help you learn how the Lord's wisdom and guidance through prayer and listening to the Holy Spirit can help you achieve those sound biblical principals in your daily life.

Although I see clients in my practice who practice a different faith, or no faith at all, I really enjoy working with my brothers and sisters in the Body of Christ. I hold a Bachelors degree in Theology, and love to counsel from a Christian perspective. The Directors and Officers of the International Board of Christian Counselors have conferred upon me the voluntary global credential of "Board Certified Professional Christian Counselor". They sorted through hours of paperwork I submitted before conferring this honor on me. The bottom line is not how many verses I've memorized. The bottom line is that I actively invite Him into my office to speak through me to each client. His Spirit heals.

God is called our counselor because he intimately knows each and everyone of us. He knows how we think and feel, and more importantly he knows how to get us "unstuck" emotionally. Scripture and prayer are very powerful and can help us get closer to God and to the heart of our problems. To become humble before our maker and say "I'm ready for change" is to begin to feel forward motion.

Specialist in Clinical Pyschology

43200 Dequindre Rd., Suite 108, Sterling Heights, MI, Michigan 48314 | 248-765-8448

Being a Christian Minister, I encourage individuals to get in touch with their faith and their beliefs to strengthen their lives. My approach is not to judge, but to accept and guide. What is spiritually healthy is usually psychologically healthy as well. My book, "The Cross and the Couch" shows how one can use the teachings and modeling of Jesus Christ to begin to heal one life. While I know the Bible well, my therapy is not a Bible study. I do not attempt to convert anyone, but accept their religious beliefs. Belief in God who is real and alive and desires to interact with his creation, has the possibility of unlocking our greatest potential.

God has given us direction on how to live a life of love, joy and peace. The Bible contains nuggets of truth which lead to a wholeness that is a balm to the pain and struggles of life. Hope is offered in a counseling relationship which God the Father, Jesus the Son and the Holy Spirit are present in the process of healing. My educational background is in both Bible and Biblical Psychology so I am well prepared to integrate emotional and spiritual direction and growth.

If you are in need of Spiritual Guidance; here, the Bible is used as the authority and background to counseling. Psalms 1:1 (a) says: "Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly" ... 2nd Timothy 3:16-17 says "All scripture is given by the inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. That the man of god may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works." Remember when Jesus was tempted of the devil, Jesus began his response with: "it is written" so, if we intend to win, we must know what the written word of God is saying to us.

Basing life on the belief that what we see and touch is just one part of reality demonstrates a spiritual orientation. As one whose life has been touched by Christian experience, I appreciate and encourage awareness of the spiritual dimension of existence. As a psychotherapist I appreciate the powerful contribution spiritual practices can add to one's emotional health. Regardless of a client's participation in a particular religious denomination, I am able to help draw on belief to enhance satisfaction with life.

Licensed Professional Counselor

2723 State Street, Suite 150, Ann Arbor, Michigan 48104 | 734-794-4737

I have been a Christian for most of my life. For me this means that I believe in Jesus Christ as my personal savior and I believe the bible is God’s word, here to help guide me through life. The Bible offers a perspective on how we manage life’s struggles and the hope of healing and restoration. I am able to bring a Christian perspective, knowledge of the Bible and prayer into the counseling environment. It has been my experience that people who bring their faith into counseling are able to make more significant, life lasting changes in shorter time spans.
