Hi my name is Lesley Goth or Dr. G. I grew up Jewish and at the age of 29, when I had my first child, I became a Christian and accepted the Lord as my Savior. I have been walking strong with the Lord ever since (21 years later) and can't imagine life and the healing "without Him. After having my daughter, I volunteered at my church to offer biblical counseling to people struggling who could not afford regular counseling. I did this for several years until my youngest was ready for pre-K and I opened my private practice 15 years ago. Working with Believers is invigorating and so rewarding. In my sessions I often hear and follow the Holy Spirit in the process and trust that He always knows what is best for the clients He brings to me. For me, Christian counseling is not about being told to "pray more" or "read the bible more" or "fellowship more" etc. It's about understanding any lies or any wrong beliefs that may be hindering your walk, your life, your relationships that we need to uncover together.
I also want my Christian clients to know it is ok to struggle in their faith. I had a precious client once tell me she was really angry with God. I told her that was "ok" and she felt so relieved!! We all are on a journey and have a past that sometimes makes trusting God and following Him quite challenging. If you've suffered trauma or have felt abandoned or rejected by people that were supposed to love and care for you, then it's not too surprising to struggle in trusting God. Let me come along side you and help peel back the layers of truth for your life so that you can find your peace and healing. There is joy to be had, not the fake joy, the real deal!
