Are you looking for some support and specific direction? Do you want the hope that things can change? Counseling can be an opportunity for you to share your heart in a safe place, and receive unconditional understanding for where you are. It is a place where you can find real hope, life-giving new insights, and productive steps for moving forward.
There are always reasons for what we believe and feel. Often those deeper, root causes need to be realized, brought into the light and changed by God’s truths; which have the power to transform us and our lives. I believe in uncovering and re-shaping these core causes of your difficulties – things like past wounds, inaccurate core beliefs, etc – through the leading of the Holy Spirit.
Yet, while I believe in working through emotions, I also believe in not getting stuck there. After shedding light on the source, I will walk with you a step at a time toward greater clarity, healthier thoughts and feelings, and greater well being. I will encourage you to be kind and understanding with yourself in the process. Even when the process of healing is not yet complete, people leave sessions feeling more peace and more hope than when they arrived. And that is important to me.
While every situation varies, this is a basic overview of my approach:
Examine your patterns of thinking and where they come from
Uncover what’s not working and why
Replace unhealthy beliefs with thoughts that are true and liberating
The sessions I offer are highly solutions-based and comprehensive, along with genuinely understanding, compassionate, and hopeful.
During the start of sessions, I will guide you to sharing what struggles you’re currently going through, and what you want improved in your life. As mentioned, we may look for the roots of these challenges, and add practices to heal those core places, receive new and uplifting insights + perspectives, and help you move forward. I offer truths that God gives me that can set you free. I also offer different types of practical, evidence-based tools that can heal the heart, calm the mind, and help the body. I bring in the spiritual tools of Scripture verses, prayer, discussions about God’s nature. I lean on God to guide our time together and grant me His thoughts for you.
If there is anything you do not feel comfortable sharing, or any topic that you do not want to discuss, I will be very respectful of that. My intention is always to help you feel totally at ease, and for you to feel uplifted in our time together.
