Faith-based

While I consider myself a non-denominational Christian, I don’t promote myself as a Christian counselor because I enjoy working with people of all spiritual and religious backgrounds (or lack thereof).  I understand that many people seeking counseling struggle with their faith or spirituality, and I support my clients regardless of their beliefs or where they are in their spiritual journey.  Many people I’ve encountered felt jaded by their experiences with the Church or have lost/questioned their faith after experiencing incomprehensible tragedy or trauma.  If your faith or spirituality is something you would like to explore in our work together, I’m happy to help.

“Why should we deprive ourselves of views that would prove helpful in crises and would give meaning to our existence?….There is a strong empirical reason why we should cultivate thoughts that can never be proved.  It is that they are known to be useful.  Man positively needs general ideas and convictions that will give a meaning to his life and enable him to find a place for himself in the universe.  He can stand the most incredible hardships when he is convinced that they makes sense; he is crushed when, on top of all his misfortunes, he has to admit that he is taking part in a ‘tale told by an idiot.'” -Carl Jung in Man and His Symbols
