Grace and Peace!
Most folks hunting for a good Christian counselor want to know that the counselor is well-educated, experienced, and deeply rooted in their faith in God, understands the authority of God, and has a deep, abiding love for God. So, here's what I can tell you...
I am Licensed by the State of North Carolina and hold a Master of Arts in Professional Counseling from Liberty University, graduating with a 4.0 GPA, High Distinction Honors.
I am a member of the American Association of Christian Counselors, a screened and approved counselor by Focus on the Family; a recognized Ally of John Eldredge's Ransomed Heart Ministries; an endorsed counselor by nationally known counselor, author, and radio host Steve Arterburn's New Life Ministries; a Level 3 graduate of Dr. Francis MacNutt's world-renowned School of Healing Prayer; and a Level 1 graduate of HeartSync Ministry training.
My Professional Counseling career has left me well-rounded, having worked not only in private practice, but also in crisis call center, community mental health, biblical counseling, and residential settings.
TYPES OF COUNSELING
I provide Individual Counseling (men, women, and adolescents), Marriage Counseling, and PreMarital Counseling (as a certified FOCCUS facilitator).
I have offices in Cary, Raleigh, and Fuquay Varina.
Over my years as a counselor, I have developed a counseling approach that merges Scripture, the Spirit, and proven therapeutic methods into effective Christian Counseling.
For those clients who require or desire deeper healing, restoration, and wholeness, I can offer Inner Healing Prayer Ministry approaches (Immanuel, MacNutt's Christian Healing Ministries, HeartSync) and Spiritual Transformation (Discipleship, Spiritual Rescue) to achieve in-depth, lasting psychological healing and spiritual transformation.
My clients tell me this approach led them to a greater understanding of themselves, their relationships, and God during their time with me - and that they felt equipped with insights and the tools necessary to help the changes they desired to occur, changes that led from hurting, struggling and confused - to hope, healing, and peace!
Folks often seek counsel with me regarding:
Marital distress: communication issues, anger/bitterness/unforgiveness, post-affair counseling, impact of sexual trauma on marriage
Sexual issues: pornography use/addiction, extra-marital affairs
Father-wounds: Father was absent, emotionally distant, critical, passive, distracted, angry, controlling, unfaithful, abused substances
Mother-wounds: Mother was absent, too close emotionally, controlling, critical, distracted, angry, had several different men in her life, abused substances
Spiritual Development: "What does God think of me?" "How does God feel about me?" "What does the Bible say about my issues?" "I'm angry at God!" "I don't feel close to God; I used to be able to feel Him and hear Him, but I don't anymore..." "I can't seem to find a church I feel comfortable in" "I was hurt in my last church"
