Christian counseling focuses on a few main principles that are different from traditional counseling. It focuses on the care of the whole person as it is also sometimes named “soul-care”, and maintains the values taught in the Bible.
Research has proven that a strong faith helps many people deal with the challenges and complexities of life. Moreover, studies have shown that religious individuals live longer and stay happier in comparison to the average American.
I believe that God is the one who brings the power to heal. We can know Him through Scripture and our relationship to one another. I also believe that there are helpful truths contained in the observations of human behavior (psychology). While these beliefs inform my counseling approach, I will always leave it up to you as to whether they are included in your counseling. Overall, I desire to be used by God to be a refuge for my clients and I love to see people experience joy and wholeness. Ultimately, I hope that counseling produces health in heart, soul and mind.
I gladly welcome people of like and differing beliefs to work with me.
