Are you feeling hopeless, stuck, or anxious? Are you frustrated with yourself or a loved one? Looking for a Christian counselor who holds Biblical values?
You don’t have to face your challenges alone! I offer a God-honouring consulting service available to everyone in need. I believe that we are all equal and we all deserve the opportunity to get professional help when we need it the most.
Struggling with your mental health is hard enough without having to deal with it on your own. I have come a long way on my journey to grow and provide help. You can count on me to provide you with support without judgment and an outlet for you to express your feelings.
If you are:
Because we live in a fallen world, we will go through hardships and obstacles. Sometimes being a Christian and having emotional or relationship issues can be confusing.
Some of us were taught throughout the years that we need to just “pray more” or “read more scripture” and the problem will go away. Some of us feel shameful that we have problems in our life–that we are somehow not faithful enough, too sinful, or ignored by God. It may be time to consider Christian counseling.
Cristian counseling has a unique approach to therapy. It operates from the premise that all people are made in the image of God. I believe that all of us are unique in the ability to manage ourselves and our environment, we all have a value system and desire to relate to God.
Through sharing of the spiritual Truth, I hope to help all of you discover yourself and heal your soul.
Each one of us needs guidance in our lives from time to time. Relationships and day to day life can be complicated. Sometimes the Bible does not give clear answers to our questions. Sometimes because we feel stuck in one place, we can’t see the healing and restoration that God has for us. Sometimes we need the help of a professional who can point us in His direction for healing and comfort.
Jesus himself had disciples, and scripture talks about the need to have people to help guide us through life. A Christian counselor can help you find clarity and make decisions that will align with your faith.
Christian Counseling is a safe, confidential place for you to share whatever you are going through – without judgment. You will never be judged or labeled a sinner. Everyone deserves to be helped, the only thing you are required to do is to ask for that help.
I have counseled hundreds of people from all walks of life, from different ages and races in the San Jose area over the last 17 years. From CEOs to murderers, I have been able to provide a non-judgmental space for people to process and heal their souls.
Are you interested in Christian counseling, but still have some concerns about the matter? Here are the answers to some frequently asked questions:
You will not be judged in the therapy sessions. I understand that everyone has a story and a journey that God has allowed us to go through. I applaud and feel so proud of those who are willing to come forward, open their wounds, and be honest and are filled with the desire to change. My approach is affirming and strengths-based. It is directed towards helping people change, not making them feel ashamed and unworthy to be happy.
If you feel comfortable sharing with your pastor and feel comfortable with your small group, that is great! However, therapy is important when it comes to treating some serious mental health illnesses. If you are going through a crisis and you need professional support that your group of trusted people doesn’t have the time or energy to give, therapy is your answer. There is nothing wrong with going to therapy. Another instance where therapy is important is when you are dealing with something that maybe your small group has never experienced and you are feeling like you need someone who understands human psychology.
I often give examples by comparing therapy to seeing a doctor vs using home remedies. If you have a common cold, home remedies may be enough to make you feel better. However, if the illness becomes more serious, and you no longer can handle it without professional help, you need to seek out Christian counseling.
I am passionate about my faith and my life mission is to help people. I am a former youth minister, ministering to over 100 youth and families–counseling, teaching, and training. I am also a pastor’s wife and heavily involved in the church. Being a Christian is not just something I “do” on Sundays – it’s a part of my everyday life, and it’s what I build my life on.
I enjoy meeting people wherever they are and I love and admire them for who they truly are. I don’t see myself as someone who needs to change others – I believe that’s God’s job. My job is to love and support people and show them the path to mindfulness and healing. I don’t push doctrine or religiosity. The gospel has enough power to change people in itself.
I have vast experience in the “secular” world–with drug addicts, Veterans with PTSD, and abuse victims, stay-at-home moms, overachieving teens, and stressed out Google employees. I do my research and I keep up to date with the literature, I attend conferences and seminars to make sure that I constantly improve myself and my therapy is grounded in best practices.
Jesus said, “I have come that they may live, and have it more abundantly” (John 10:10). My hope is that you would be able to experience abundantly what God has in store for you.
