Christian Counseling Services
My desire is to help people overcome their challenges through a uniquely Christian, root based, trauma informed approach. As an ordained minister in the Christian Church and a trained EMDR therapist, my desire is to combine those two disciplines to help clients achieve freedom and healing from the difficult issues they experience in their lives. I am also familiar with Internal Family Systems and incorporate it into my treamtment.
I have encountered all types of people with all types of challenges, and I can connect to and understand the difficulties, and often discouragement, about those issues. I want to help you find the healing and freedom you are looking for.
Through initial meetings, trust building and understanding develops, and together I work with you to identify the roots causes of issues you are experiencing. We then target those experiences that contributed, and using EMDR, begin to desensitize the intensity of those experiences and reprocess those in a right and healthy way.
I am currently working under the supervision of Jennifer Cecil, M.Ed, LPC of Christian Counseling Services, an AZBBHE approved supervisor. Find our more about CCS by clicking below.
Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Through counseling and treatment, we work to identify the contributing factors and then work to help you recover motivation, perspective, and joy that you once had in your life.
As an EMDR therapist, I believe most people's symptoms are associated with painful and traumatic circumstances that have occurred in their life. Anxiety, fear, panic attacks and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger as a result traumatic events. We can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of grief and healing.
Relationship counseling can be beneficial to couples who are looking to strengthen their emotional connection, in all stages of their relationship. Therapy sessions are held with both couples utilizing the Gottman Assessment and is a supportive place to discuss issues and solutions to better strengthen your relationship.
