Looking for an experienced counselor who shares your Christian values and faith perspective? Someone with whom you feel comfortable bringing your whole self as you sort out the challenges you’re facing? You long to consistently experience an internal settledness, but the troubling thoughts and emotions just won’t simmer down. That inner critic won't let up, and you’re tired of feeling like your own worst enemy. It's become exhausting, and your body is telling you in physical ways that something's gotta give. Help is here. You can experience more of the inner peace and rest you long for.

Changes in life are often expected, but sometimes it hits you unexpectedly and it hits hard. Since change is a normal part of life, that can make it hard to seek help when we're having difficulty in this area. We assume that everybody else is having an easier time adjusting than we are, or feel we just need to power through on our own without support but I don't think that could be further from the truth. All of us are only human & need the invaluable resource of help, support, & encouragement. Anxiety, depression, stress, racing thoughts, fear, poor self-esteem, and other issues often get in our way of living a meaningful life.

What does it mean to be mentally and emotionally well? You likely know what being "unwell" in these areas looks like, but have you ever stopped to consider what "healthy" is; after all, that is the goal is it not? I would contend that Mental and Emotional Wellness can be summed up by two areas: 1. Gratitude and 2. A sense of personal Agency (meaning your have the ability to affect change in yourself and have control over the immediate future.) I absolutely love exploring these areas with my clients and helping them attain true Wellness in their Mental and Emotional Health.

Waitlist for new clients
In my 50+ years I have personally experienced a lot of things that my clients share with me. I am able to empathize or and the very least identify with my client`s needs. My approach is Person/Client Centered; Person-centered therapy uses a non-authoritative approach that allows clients to take more of a lead in discussions so that, in the process, they will discover their own solutions. The therapist acts as a compassionate facilitator, listening without judgment and acknowledging the client’s experience without moving the conversation in another direction. The therapist is there to encourage and support the client.

I currently hold my LPC-MHSP license and I specialize in several areas including depression, OCD/anxiety, stress, and couples counseling. I enjoy working with individuals who are open to the therapy process and are willing to work toward goals. Please consider, this process is NOT a one-off session - it is a course of treatment whereby you need to be committed to change and healing towards a happy more grounded and integrated future. Therapy is something you engage in, not something you receive passively and while like most things in life that are incredibly difficult to do, they tend to be the most fulfilling.

Christian Therapists

Why is it important for a therapist to be culturally sensitive?

Therapists and clients don’t need to share the same belief system or background to be able to work effectively together, but a therapist whose training includes a focus on cultural competence may be better able to form a therapeutic bond with individuals from a range of backgrounds, as they will have experience in tailoring their approach to each client—and will be prepared to acknowledge and consider the effects of culture, religion, and other factors on each individual.

Why is it important to find a therapist sensitive to Christian values?

Each person brings a unique history and background to therapy, making it important to find a licensed therapist who is trained in a broad range of treatment modalities. In addition, for people who grow up in a faith tradition that strongly influences the way they conduct their everyday life, finding a therapist who understands or shares that background can ease the disclosure of sensitive information and facilitate the therapeutic process. For some clients, a Christian therapist is likely to incorporate faith-based principles into emotional healing techniques.

How do I recognize an effective Christian therapist?

Christian therapists are licensed mental health professionals—holding a master’s or doctoral degree in medicine, nursing, psychology, counseling, social work, or marriage and family therapy—who are also familiar with Christian beliefs and values. They have an understanding of the importance that Christian principles play in the lives of individuals and families, which allows them to be especially sensitive to the kinds of struggles that can affect daily functioning. Like all effective therapists, a Christian therapist will have undergone training and certification in a variety of treatment modalities that help people through crises and enable them to master the challenges of life.

Why might someone feel comfortable with a Christian therapist?

While training, qualifications, and experience are always important, research has long established that a strong alliance between client and therapist is a major contributor to therapeutic success. An alliance is likely to be strengthened with a therapist who not only is responsive to questions and concerns but also shares a client’s faith and values. Sensitivity to spiritual matters as well as to everyday struggles can provide a welcome sense of safety and contribute to the bond between client and therapist, both of which support the therapeutic process.

Who is included in Psychology Today’s directory of Christian therapists?

The directory of Christian therapists includes professionals who have shared their background in their profiles. However, not all therapists choose to disclose this information, and they may not appear in search results for this reason. The directory also shows therapists who indicate that they have extensive experience working with Christian clients, regardless of their own background or religious affiliation.
