Our faith and spirituality form a vital part of who we are and how we choose to live. Many Christians seek a counsellor who respects and aligns with their faith values and beliefs.
ABOUT MY FAITH
I was introduced to Jesus through a friend from high school. I saw the way that she lived out her faith and how it impacted her, and I wanted that for myself. As I grew to understand more about God's love for me in Jesus, I committed my life to him and have not looked back since.
I am passionate about integrating my faith with my counselling practice. I completed a Masters degree in Counselling at Morling College, a Bible college in Sydney. I believe that God is living and active and uses our every day situations, even our suffering and hardships, to grow, change, and restore us. My Christian faith informs my practice in the way view and care for people. I respect the autonomy, spirituality, and values of my clients and never impose my own worldview, whether or not they share my faith.
I have also completed a ministry internship training at her local church and am actively involved in the pastoral care and leadership roles within my church. I have served in the ministry of young adults and women of all ages.
WHAT IS CHRISTIAN COUNSELLING?
Christian counselling involves integrating faith and the Word of God with other complementary modalities in a way that it fits comfortably for my clients. Almost any individual or relationship issue can be approached through a faith-based lens.
In addition, I also offer support in areas such as (but not limited to):
Guidance for pastors and ministry leaders
Conflict resolution and peacemaking
Setting boundaries to avoid burnout
Singleness and dating
Navigating dating for Christian couples
Pre-marriage counselling (Prepare-Enrich) with a biblical lens
Recovery from spiritual abuse
