Marriage Counseling for Couples


Whether you and your spouse have drifted apart over the years, or you are bickering all the time, marriage counseling can make a world of difference! There are so many issues that cause friction between mates – bad habits, past relationship pain, childhood abuse, suffering, the passing of a loved one. Sometimes you feel like you do not know who to turn to for help. Help is here! As a Christian Counselor, trained in various psychotherapeutic models, I teach husbands and wives how to address and work through these exhausting challenges. Married couples are then able to gently apply foundational Biblical principles to their relationship and enjoy the sweet joys of marital love, the way God intended.

Family Therapy

 


 Family counseling can help deal with stresses between parents and children, and/or between siblings. Do you often feel like you are living with strangers in your home? Aliens? As a complement to the Biblical perspective, I use a Family Systems approach which practically helps family members understand each other and communicate better. Well intentioned families get stuck in “the crazy cycle,” and often cannot seem to find common ground. I help clients see how they get into this maddening pattern and assist them in finding new and loving ways to connect.

Counseling for Teenagers


Adolescence can be such a difficult and confusing time. I remember those years as if they were yesterday! This can be a really weird season! A teen who is having difficulties at school, with family members, peers or with themselves can really feel better knowing that they have an objective and understanding adult in whom they can share their heart. In my counseling practice, I have a deep desire to help teenagers sort out their feelings, understand themselves better, and find help for their problems. It does not have to be such a strange time. There is hope!

Counseling for Individuals 


It is said that almost everyone could benefit from counseling at some time in their lives. Whether it is after a divorce, coping with the stresses of everyday life or dealing with the death of a loved one, you may need someone to help you put the pieces back into place. Through counseling, I can help ease the burden of your seemingly unmanageable challenge. You will feel affirmed and validated so that you can begin the work of self-exploration, gaining insight and finding solutions that resonate with your values and God given strengths and gifts.

Pre-Marital Counseling


Couples who are about to get married often want to make sure they are “starting out on the right foot.” Many have seen the troubles of their friends and family members and do not want to fall into the same trap. Pre-Marital Counseling helps them realistically and practically prepare for the daily experience of marriage. In my sessions, I enjoy teaching and leading couples in discussing various marriage topics, and even give them homework assignments. It’s like a couple’s university of sorts! Christian Pre-Marital Counseling emphasizes God’s purpose and plan for marriage and helps partners talk about and sort out the “stuff” they bring into the marriage relationship, in a therapeutic environment. 

Call (512) 596-2929 to set up your complimentary consultation and see how pre-marital counseling can help you!

  • Parenting and Raising Step-Children
  • Spiritual Beliefs

Grief Counseling


It has been said that losing a child is one of the greatest tragedies that can occur in the life of a couple, in the life of anyone! No one expects to bury their child and many couples have no clue about how to continue on afterwards. Many spouses are so absorbed in their own grief that they find it impossible to reach out to the other. These mates are actually at a greater risk for divorce. Studies have shown that even “healthy” partners never get over this loss, but instead learn to adjust to and integrate it their lives.

My advanced certification in hospice and palliative care, years of working in the field of grief and loss and the experience of losing a child myself, have equipped me to minister healing to those suffering from this unimaginable and tragic loss. With my gentle and understanding approach, you will be able to find hope amidst the pain and move into embracing the loss in a life-giving way. 

Call (512) 596-2929 to set up your complimentary consultation and see how grief counseling can help you to move forward and regain the lost joy in your life.
