Thank you for your interest.
You are probably wondering how my faith informs my work as a counselor.
Firstly, I don’t believe that faith can be reduced to a set of counseling techniques. Rather, I believe faith informs who I am as a counselor and my approach. As such, I think my faith impacts my counseling in these ways:
I feel secure in my identity such that my counseling is not about me but about you.
It motivates me to do my best on behalf of my fellow human being, a beloved creature.
I believe some mental health symptoms such as depression and anxiety can be traced to wanting more control than we actually have as human beings. It is understandable to want more control in our lives, especially if we have had trauma (which all of us do) but part of recovering is learning our role in our lives and the things that we have control over and those that we don’t.
In my day job, I work in a professional health care setting so I believe in the important role of medical care in mental health care, just as I believe in the important role of spirituality in mental health.
Please feel free to contact me if I may be a good fit for your needs.
