Christian Counseling for Women (Traditional Counseling or Made to Thrive)
Marriage & Pre-Marriage Counseling
Although Christian counselors often use skills from the field of secular psychology and counseling, they recognize that the Bible, not psychology, is the final authority. “His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness” (2 Peter 1:3). A Christian counselor’s major strategy is to help their clients substitute biblical truth for error as they go about their day-to-day lives. They know that the truth, when known, believed, and obeyed, sets people free. When people are set free, they are fulfilling their true calling. “Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free” (John 8:32).
Congratulations for having the courage to start the process of overcoming the struggles and challenges that are causing your stress, depression, anxiety, and relationship conflicts. I am excited to share this journey with you. Therapy is a process of growth and change that takes time and effort, but the results pay off exponentially in every area of your life. I’m happy to answer any questions you have about counseling.

For Dating, Engaged, or Married Couples
If “being in love” is your purpose for getting married, what happens when you no longer feel in love? What happens when you no longer want to share your lives together? What is keeping the marriage alive when you stop feeling like soul mates? For marriage to last, it has to be built on a much greater purpose than the happiness and well-being of two single people. And that purpose has to be greater than any amount of stress and struggle that comes into the marriage.
When God brings couples together, he does so with a great deal of intention and vision. He knows why he created each one of us, and what he wants to accomplish in our lives. He gave us specific gifts and talents in order to fulfill that vision. He knows the plans he has for us, and those plans involve marrying the right person. God knows exactly who he wants you to marry, and why he wants you to marry them. He knows the children he wants to give you, and has a vision for their future as well. God has a plan and a purpose for each one of us—individually, and as a couple. And it’s our job to seek out that vision so that he can fulfill it through us.
When you become one in God’s heart, you also become one in God’s will. And the only way any of us will find true peace and harmony in marriage is to surrender our will to God, and trust him with our future. (Evans, Jimmy; Martin, Frank. The Right One: How to Successfully Date and Marry the Right Person)
The purpose of marriage counseling is to help husband and wife learn to do things God’s way in their marriages. That means learning to treat your spouse with respect, kindness, and grace. It also means creating healthy boundaries that hold both spouses accountable and responsible for their behavior.
I offer a marriage counseling package available for $195 monthly. Each month you get 3 hours of counseling, no fees for late cancellations, and help via phone or email between sessions.
