Welcome

My Counseling Approach

At Damascus Road, you can receive professional counseling with a Christian perspective. “Christian Counseling” simply refers to my spiritual belief system and it is my way of self-disclosing to the community how I approach life’s problems. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and my faith system is Christianity.

If Christianity is in line with your spiritual belief system, then I will deliver therapy which does not shy away from themes of God and the Bible. Rather than change someone’s theological position, my aim is to integrate a person’s faith and character to result in personal and relational progress.

I do not discriminate in seeing clients of other spiritual faith systems. I do not pray with clients in session and I do not attempt to interpret Scripture since that is beyond my scope. If I have a client struggling with a particular personal issue which they feel they need scriptural interpretation for, I will refer to them to their pastor or other religious leader. I am also open to psychopharmacology and medical interventions. My ultimate aim is to help you reach your counseling goals while being authentic about my philosophy of life.
