Anxiety is one of the most common struggles my clients have and have had. I've worked with people of all ages and backgrounds who struggle with anxiety.
I have a background in counseling from a Christian lens and especially enjoy working with clients who are questioning their faith or deconstructing their beliefs.
I have worked with quite a few people who have experienced sexual assault or abuse and have found that focusing on working through the shame associated with the trauma and providing a safe place for clients to face their trauma can be helpful.
As a person-centered therapist, I provide a safe space for clients to feel heard, understood, and seen. I work with my clients collaboratively to help foster progress and changes in the areas the client wants to focus on.
I can approach therapy from a Christian perspective if desired. I graduated from a seminary with a degree in counseling that takes an integrated approach to Christianity and counseling. You will not hear "Just pray it away" or "Your faith just isn't strong enough" from me. Whatever your mental health looks like, it is not a moral failure or a failure in faith.
Let's face it, spiritual abuse and religious trauma happen in every religion. While I come from a Christian background, I recognize that that faith itself can be traumatic for some. Sexual abuse scandals among Christian denominations are beginning to come to light and now, more than ever, is a time to reach out if you've experienced trauma in this way.
