Catholic Based Counseling Support
Are you looking for individual or couples counseling from a Catholic perspective? I know this can be very difficult to find. When we incorporate our faith and beliefs into therapy, the difference can be life changing. We are living in a world that is against most Catholic virtues and values. Self doubt, anxiety and depression are on the rise. The commandment “love one another as I have loved you” can feel complex when you are in a relationship that feels so far removed from love. Psychotherapy can absolutely help with all of this, but what can help even more is blending psychotherapy with the hope, trust and peace that only God can give. If you are seeking a therapist who understands the role that God and the Church play in your life, I am that person!
Individual Counseling Services
Perhaps you are hurting and seeking a way to find deeper forgiveness and healing? I’ve seen clients work through so much past hurt and trauma with every therapy technique possible, only to find a piece still holding them back. The missing piece is God’s grace. Forgiveness is impossible by our own power, we truly need grace from God to be able to fully forgive, heal, and move forward with hope.
I love working with people to find their “fiat;” what are you saying yes to in your life? What is God calling you to do and what are you allowing God to do in your life? Sometimes we say no to things because we are paralyzed with fear; fear of failure, fear of what others will think, or fear of standing out in a broken society. I can help you discern what God is putting in your heart and help you let go of the need to control and simply let God’s will be done.
Couples Counseling Services
With a divorce rate over 50%, it is clear that our society is no longer promoting the value and beauty that can come from a healthy and happy marriage. Our faith and beliefs are a resource to strengthen and protect ourselves, our marriages and our families. Through working together with both psychotherapy techniques and the power of prayer and protection, we can guard against the real battle which is the work of the enemy who plots and schemes to tear us and our love for each other apart. Taking on the perspective of working against this battle as a team has helped the couples I work with find a renewed sense of hope and purpose in the fight for their marriage.
My couples counseling work is meant to help you discover how God can be incorporated more fully into your relationship to improve the quality of your relationship and to help heal past hurts or trauma. There is no doubt that marriage is hard; but will you let that break you or will you look to God to work toward the marriage you’ve always dreamed of?
Our marriages are a sacrament and vocation that are used for God to grow in virtue. God sanctifies us through our marriages, encouraging us to grow in love. All marriages are subject to challenges along the way and these can be opportunities to learn how to encounter Christ through our spouse. Men and women have unique purposes they each bring to a marriage; let's talk about this together and get you to a place where your marriage feels whole, hopeful and holy again.
I also offer premarital counseling packages for couples who would like to strengthen their relationship with each other and with God prior to marriage.
If you’ve been seeking counseling and looking for someone who can understand how to incorporate your faith into your wellbeing, I am here to help you. Let’s work together to find wholeness through holiness.
