I provide Christian counseling for men, women, and couples in Manassas VA. It seems that many of my clients seek a therapist who shares their faith and speaks their spiritual language. I received my Master of Arts in Professional Counseling from Liberty University, where I learned the value of integrating faith and therapy for Christian clients. Since I work with Christian and non-Christian clients, I rely on each individual or couple to indicate their preference for Christian Counseling.
Some of us have been wounded by Christian communities in which we sought safety and help. Perhaps spiritual leaders ignored our needs because they were too busy exerting their authority. Maybe excessive legalism robbed us of promised rest and placed us on a treadmill of performance. Or, perhaps we were unintentionally hurt by healthy leaders in a healthy Christian community. Either way we were wounded, and a holistic Christian Counseling approach could offer a doorway of hopeful change.
From six years of working as discipleship counselor for women in a Christian ministry, I learned that human problems are often complicated and, many times, effective solutions are unique: what works to calm one Christian’s anxiety may aggravate another’s; an approach that feels like freedom to one Christian may feel like chains to another. I desire to provide Christian Counseling which recognizes the uniqueness of each individual or couple.
