Christian counseling integrates faith in God as part of the process in healing. As a Christian counselor, I do believe that God is an important part of the process, however, He wants to be part of the process and will not do it for you. You must be a willing participant and proactive in the method of change. I combine Cognitive Behavioral Treatment with Bible believing truths to help get you achieve your goals whether it be stable mental health, reached success in career or healthy relationships.
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) focuses on exploring relationships among a person's thoughts, feelings and behaviors. Studies of CBT have shown it to be an effective treatment for a wide variety of mental illnesses, including depression, anxiety disorders, bipolar disorder, eating disorders and schizophrenia.
Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy (EMDR therapy) is used to treat PTSD, anxiety, phobias, chronic pain, performance enhancement to name a few. A number of studies have shown it can reduce the emotional distress resulting from traumatic memories. This approach follows a strict 8 phase protocol program to ensure efficacy and resolution.
The Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP) is an evidence-based listening therapy designed to reduce sound sensitivities and improve auditory processing, behavioral state regulation, and social engagement behaviors through filtered music. As a practical application of Polyvagal Theory, the SSP acts as a non-invasive, acoustic vagal nerve stimulator, helping to re-tune the nervous system to better support connection, collaboration and resilience.
