Q&A

I love walking alongside people as they find healing from life hurts, habits and hang-ups through a deeper understanding and relationship with Jesus Christ. I love when the light of HOPE begins to shine again in the life of the person sitting in front of me. It reminds me over and over of the beauty of the human soul and the magnificent love and care of our Father.

I saw a need for the truths of Scripture in counseling again. Counseling actually began in the Church but was taken over as a secular scientific enterprise in the late 19th century and with it came the decline of self responsibility and the knowledge of the effects of sin. though I see benefits in psychology I also see no cure, no hope and no real change. The labels given in psychology feel so permanent (your ARE a victim, depression, an alcoholic, ADHD, etc) with no real hope for change greater than behavioral modification. The Bible offers real hope. In Christ we are new creatures. Flawed in a multitude of ways, yes, but loved and accepted. This love an acceptance changes the heart which is far deeper than our behavior. I felt people really needed to know this.

As I started seeing healing happening at my church were I serve as biblical counselor I knew this was needed everywhere. Our counseling staff is so busy that we cannot take anyone from outside our church and there is a great need. I started to feel the weight of that need and through lots of prayer and counsel Genesis 1 was born.

If you are looking for a counselor who is in love with her Savior, and because of that holds herself to the highest of standards in this work, I'm the counselor for you. If you are tired of the crazy cycle the worlds advice has you on and are ready to hear what God has to say about your struggles, I'm the counselor for you. If you want a truly biblical approach to the pain and suffering of this life, then I am the counselor for you. If you are tired of human advice and are open to Truth, it would be my privilege to point you to Him.

As believers in Christ Jesus we are indwelled by the Holy Spirit who enables us to face any trial with patience, love, forgiveness and understanding. When we start to understand this even the most difficult circumstances can be counted all joy. Marriage was not created to be easy it was created to be one of God’s main ways to forge His children into gold – to make us like Jesus. Marriage (especially Christian marriage) was created by God to reflect the Person of God and His love to the world. It was formed by God to reveal the mystery of Christ’s love for His bride – the Church – and it is worth fighting for.

It can involve Psychologically traumatic experiences often involve physical trauma that threatens one's survival and sense of security. Typical causes and dangers of psychological trauma include, but are not limited to, harassment, abandonment, abusive relationships, physical assault, sexual abuse, partner battery and domestic violence or being the victim of an alcoholic parent to name a few.  Trauma is devastating to the lives of those who experience it. It can disrupt your life and the lives of those you love in ways that even you may not be aware of.

“Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed…continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.” (Phil. 2:12-13) Feeling lukewarm in our faith? Feel like the flame if flickering out and you don’t know what to do? Let us walk alongside you and reignite the flame for we are all called to “spur one another on toward love and good deeds” in order that we might all “hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.”

When most people think of “Addiction” they typically think of drugs or alcohol but addiction can be anything we may have an affinity toward such as food, drugs (of all kinds -illegal or prescription), money, sex, respect, power, alcohol, exercise or even television and this is not an exhaustive list. Addictions constitute a repetitive indulgence of that which we desire and different people have their preferred vice but it is all bondage in the end. If you feel trapped in an unbreakable cycle of any kind that you deeply desire to break free from let us help. Christ came to set the captive free.

Mental, Emotional & Behavior Troubles – In a fallen world we are plagued by troubles of all kinds. When the trouble lies within us battling with our minds, hearts and bodies the trouble can sometime seem overwhelming.  You are not alone. Thousands of people (even Christians) struggle with moderate to severe anxiety, fear, anger, passive aggressive disorder, depression and bipolar disorder.  It’s exhausting and some days it feels as if there is not end to the suffering but there can be. Listen to the words of your Savior Jesus, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. (Matthew 11:28-29). Come and let us help you find rest for your weary soul in the yoke of the Savior.

Families come in all shapes and sizes; large families, small families and everything in between; biological families, adoptive families and blended family of all kind but to God they are meant to be a blessed gift from His hands. With all the differences there are in families all families share several common bonds whether Christian or not. We all share a common enemy - the systems of the world that encourage division, independence and rebellion. The family was meant to be a tightly knit unit not every man (and woman) for themselves. As believers, we have a lot more in common. We have a common Heavenly Father, a common purpose, a common Enemy (Satan & the worlds systems), a common Savior, a common Spirit and we are all part of the same heavenly family. There is strength in numbers and Power through God for the healing and strengthening of your family.
