I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with nine years of experience working with adolescents, adults, and families in my Community Mental Health. I have over 18 years of experience working with at-risk adolescents and families in the system, and working with clinicians to develop their own skills in working with these populations. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns, including: depression, anxiety, relationship issues, chronic shame and low self esteem, often rooted unbeknownst to us in our earliest memories. I have over 20 years of experience in working with issues of codependency, adult children of addicts/alcoholics, parenting problems. I am able to help trauma survivors who have found only limited relief elsewhere find the relief they had given up hoping for via expertise in EMDR and EFT, even when these methods may have failed in the hands of the less experienced.
My own struggle to find peace inside my Christian faith, to leave behind doubts, self reliance, and find comfort in knowing, allows me to support my clients without judgement. It can be painful to want the peace of faith but not be able to attain it when we need it most. Our work together, guided by the Holy Spirit, will help you find or restore Christ as the center of your life. Like Christ, I treat my clients with compassion, and sensitivity. BetterHelp allows me to avoid stigmatizing labels, so often required for treatment when insurance is involved.
My approach is simple. Let's look for evidence in your current life of unresolved past pain, and utilize simple techniques to permanently eradicate the encroachment of painful past into your present and future. Together we will work to remove habits that are no longer helpful, and replace them with the habit of calling on God, trusting in His path and timing, and resting peacefully while He navigates the stormy waters of your life.
I hope we can work together to help you find peace.

Excellent counselor. I'd been struggling for years with lingering sadness and loneliness and by working through it with Candace it has disappeared and the addictive trigger is gone.
Candace Walters and the counseling she has provided has been a blessing. Her dedication to her work, the years of experience and education, plus her authentic caring for her patients really shows. It has been very reassuring in a time of uncertainty that remote counseling can provide such a needed service. Faithful Counseling has clearly brought on well qualified professionals and Candace Walters we would highly recommend.
