Are You A Woman Who’s Looking For Christ Centered Counseling?

Have you been dealing with anxiety, depression, or trauma?

Are you struggling to find solutions in a world that doesn’t identify with your faith?

Do you wish you had someone in your life that you could openly talk to about mental health issues?

Maybe you have a supportive group of Christian women at your church, but you’re leery of telling them about your struggles. Perhaps you feel like they wouldn’t be able to relate to what you’re going through. You might worry that they’d just offer churchy or contrite answers, telling you to “Just have faith” or “Read the Bible more.” As a result, you probably wish there was someone in your life who shared your faith and understood your mental health issues.

Finding Mental Health Support As A Christian Isn’t Easy

On one hand, the world of secular therapy doesn’t appeal to you. As Christians, we are called to glorify God in all we do and in whatever circumstance. This is our main goal (1 Corinthians 10:31). You want to talk to someone who identifies with your biblical worldview and offers Christ centered solutions. But on the other hand, there may be things that you’re not comfortable sharing with a church counselor. As a result, you might feel at a loss for answers.

If this is how you feel, I encourage you to take heart. As a Christian and a licensed counselor, I provide biblical counseling for women in Florida who are looking to improve their mental health and deepen their walk with Christ. I’m confident that I can help you navigate the trials of this life in a way that always points you towards Jesus, the Author and Perfector of your faith.

Christians Are Not Immune To Anxiety, Depression, And Relationship Issues

Being Christian doesn’t guarantee that life will be easy. Christ Himself said that in this world we will face many trials and sorrows (John 16:33). It’s very normal for Christians to feel depressed or anxious, wrestle with addiction, and experience problems in their marriage.

Unfortunately, “fear of man” holds many Christians back from seeking help in dark times. Many of them are afraid of being judged by their fellow believers. They often worry that their faith is not strong enough if their mental health is struggling, so they bury their pain and pretend everything is okay. This creates a culture where many Christians are suffering in silence instead of getting support.

Mental Health Struggles Are Not A Reflection Of A Weak Faith

In fact, many of the most dedicated believers go through seasons of doubt, grief, and heartache. Such times teach us to draw closer to God and lay our burdens at His feet. They are not an indicator of a lack of faith.

All too often, however, other believers tell those suffering that they’ll feel better if they just have more faith. Although these remarks may come from a place of genuine kindness, it makes many Christians feel ashamed to admit when they’re struggling.

You are not to blame for your mental health challenges—you are fearfully and wonderfully made and you deserve to have someone remind you of that. As a Christian counselor, I want to help you recognize your true worth and navigate your difficulties using God’s Word as your guide.

Christian Counseling Can Help You Improve Your Mental Health And Deepen Your Walk With Christ

woman reading bible smilingA lot of secular therapy is focused on bettering the self. And while there is value in self-care, Christians find it ultimately leaves you empty unless it is directed toward God. In Christian counseling, my mission is to help you overcome distorted thoughts and respond to life’s challenges in a Biblical way.

Although I offer counseling for women who suffer from depression, anxiety, and many other mental health issues, I also provide counseling for Christian couples looking to strengthen their marriage or relationship. Whether you want to come for solo sessions or with your husband, I would be honored to encourage you and build you up so that you are equipped to handle the storms of life.

The Foundation Of My Biblical Approach To Counseling

In Romans 12:2, the Apostle Paul writes: “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—His good, pleasing and perfect will.” This verse forms the backbone of my counseling approach.

Working together, I will use God’s Word to teach you how your thoughts contribute to your emotions and behavior. As Paul wrote, you need to renew your thinking to achieve a healthier outcome and keep your emotions from taking over. I will give you the skills to recognize when you are conforming to the pattern of this world and redirect you to Jesus and His Word. This way, you’ll be able to transform your thinking so that your emotions don’t control your mind.

Tailoring Your Counseling Plan

What we work on in sessions ultimately depends on what you need support for. If you need help with relationships, I can teach you to establish healthy boundaries, communicate more effectively, and solve conflict in a constructive way. If you want help managing stress or regulating your emotions, we can work on coping strategies for staying grounded and remembering that God is in control.

In all things, I want to help you work through your challenges in a way that doesn’t jeopardize your values. You will learn to process and resolve your mental health issues while keeping Christ at the center of your life. This will be done by bringing prayer, scripture reading, and understanding into the counseling sessions. Additionally, I’ll equip you with practical skills and give you biblical homework so that you can cultivate new habits in your quiet time with God.

The Bible says that those who hope in the Lord will soar on wings like eagles (Isaiah 40:31). This is my hope for you. When you put your mental health in the Lord’s hands, mountains can move and you can experience a newfound sense of peace and serenity.

You May Have Some Questions About Christian Counseling…

Change occurs within a deep relationship with Jesus Christ. If something is causing pain in your walk with God, we can work together to explore what that might be. Sometimes there is guilt or shame around past trauma that needs to be processed. Other times there might be a relationship that’s caused difficulties in your walk with God. Regardless of what the issue is, we can work together to help you trust in His Word and hold fast to Him and His promises. 

Absolutely! Your scripture reading is one of the most important aspects of your relationship with Christ. Sometimes life gets in the way—you might find yourself too busy or stressed out to be still and get back into the Word. If this is how you feel, we can work together to find a scripture reading routine that’s compatible with this season of your life.

I get it—in some Christian circles it isn’t normal to talk about certain topics. There may be struggles in your life that you feel ashamed of. If that’s the case, I will help you normalize your struggles so that you realize you’re not alone. The good news is that counseling is confidential. You can find hope in Christian counseling without the fear of judgement.

There Is Hope When You Hold Fast To God’s Promises

Together, we can take a deep dive into the Word and discover what promises God has in store for you. To learn more about Christian counseling and begin the process of renewing your mind and transforming your heart, please call (954)-861-0164 or contact me for a free video or phone consultation.
