How Grace Counseling Works...
At Grace Counseling I combine professional individual, marriage, and family therapy in the context of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
My professional training is in "Systems" or "Family Therapy" (MA in Marriage and Family Therapy, Reformed Seminary, Jackson, MS, 1997). If you have ever wondered "why you do what you do" (and who hasn't!) this is a very helpful approach. I help people understand and undo cross generational patterns of behavior and communication that keep them from being who they want to be, and forming healthy and intimate relationships with others.
I am also trained in Biblical Theology (M.Div., Reformed Seminary, Jackson, MS, 1995) and have over 20 years experience in Christian ministry (10 of these as a pastor). Thus, the counseling process is very much part of a persons spiritual journey towards wholeness in Christ. All sessions begin in prayer. Special care is taken to discern the clients understanding of forgiveness, grace, and what it means to become a new person in Christ and face the future with hope and joy.
I consider the whole counseling process to be very sacred. It is a great privilege to me to be invited into the secret places of a persons heart and to walk with Christ there. If you are serious about long term change that will affect not only how you live this life but the next life as well, please give me a call.
Also...not sure about God, Christ, and all that Bible stuff? Don't be put off. I will meet you where you are at. I quit beating people over the head a long time ago! Let's get together and talk and see where it goes.
I am here to help you with the following:
Marriage Intimacy and Communication.
Tire of fighting? Want to be closer? Let's get together and deal with those failed expectations. Got baggage? Lets find the freedom to let things go and find a grace based acceptance of each other that will build each other up.
- Shame Based Behaviors
Addicted to performance, perfectionism, co-dependency?? Do you have hidden sins connected to sex and other "feel good" drugs? Are you always tired and never feel you "make the grade"? Let's work together to find a Christ based identity.
- Blended Family
Do you have "yours, mine, and ours"? Feeling guilty? Not sure where the boundaries are between kids and spouses? Let's take a guilt free journey together, clarify expectations, and find some rest!
- Depression and Anger?
Been down too long? Not sure how to deal with angry emotions? Is it even ok to be angry? Let's process together how to deal with Depression and should go. Let's work together towards emotional freedom.
