Why Christian Counseling (Therapy)?
You just want to figure this out and feel better. You’ve talked to your pastors, to your church leaders, and to your groups – but the truth is they haven’t been enough.
Sometimes there are pieces that feel too private to share with certain people, and other times it is clear that the helper is just as lost as you are. Prayer, devotionals and Bible reading are excellent tools, but what happens when you reach your endpoint? Or, when stuff is getting in the way?
My name is Tania, and I am a therapist who practices from a perspective that looks through the lens of faith and Christianity at all that we’ve learned in psychology about these glorious minds and bodies that God has created. I understand that the Bible was written for the times and that sometimes it is hard to get clarity on what healthy God-led habits look like in the here and now.
So how do I work? My approach to Christian Counseling (Therapy) is an integration of Christianity with the general revelation found in psychology. Integration is the orientation at major Christian-counseling programs such as Fuller Seminary; Regent University, Rosemead, and Wheaton College; it is used by Dobson and Cloud/Townsend on their radio programs.
My beliefs align closest to those of Celebration Church. When you live out who you are already in-Christ, and are attentive to the Holy Spirit’s guidance you will eventually become everything you are meant to be. Of course, we will not reach perfection in this life, but there are the incredible resources of God’s love, guidance, His infinite forgiveness, and cleansing. I offer resources such as Scripture, prayers, groups, meditations, spiritual direction, movies, and books.
