Hello, and welcome to my bio. I am happy to see you taking these first steps to reach out and receive support. I understand how hard it is to find the "right" therapist, and how important it is to find the right therapist! May you find the right one and together find the appropriate journey that best fits YOU!
It is both brave and wise to seek to grow and evolve your sense of self, to want more for y ourself, and, to become the best and most authentic you. I do what I do for people such as you who want more and want a partnership in that work. It is my honor to incorporate Christian perspective alongside your journey!
I work with clients who seek growth, to change what they do not find pleasing about their sense of self, or their life. Areas of specialty include:
Learning to have a confident voice
Relational ruptures and repair
I believe you are your own best expert on yourself, so my counseling approach is not to push you somewhere I think you should got, but rather to walk alongside you as we together seek your own best solutions. After all, what works for one might not work for all. I am judgment free and open to your worldviews; this makes the therapeutic process move much quicker because you know you can show up authentically.
My work reflects an integrative approach to counseling. I integrate all truth in my work, not just psychological truth. You will see my educational background supports this style of learning and serving. For example, I believe that science and research, biological/neurological truths, spiritual truths, God's general and special revelation, Biblical truth, and natural truths all inform life, and thus should also inform the counseling process that attempts to unpack and redirect our lives. As your therapist, I will also learn from YOU, and take that experience forward with those I serve as therapist to in the future.
Some therapists work best by walking in front of their clients and directing their progress. Some prefer to step totally back and promote/support the journey a Client chooses to take. Some, like me, prefer to walk alongside their clients and journey together, as equals who each possess critical bit of knowledge to complete the puzzle ahead.
For Christians who wish to have a foundational approach to counseling that is Christian, I am honored and possess both educational and personal experience to effectively journey with you in this way. However, I am not limited to Christian perspective in my work with clients. Ultimately, my client's beliefs are what most matters. Again, I go where you are and move with you wherever you choose to go. As your therapist I will make every effort to keep my own beliefs and values out of your way. You will find me respectful of spiritual preferences, sexual orientation, political beliefs and social constructs.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Jill Jonnes-Kuca. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with Faithful Counseling might be different.
She’s very supportive, communicates clearly, flexible with my needs and limits. I really appreciate our time.
