As our name, "Christian Counseling Associates," implies, my approach to life issues is through a Biblical grid. It's not that I give chapter and verse for everything said but the scriptures are foundational.
When I think of counseling, I often quote Will Rogers. "We are all ignorant, only on different subjects." Applying that to counseling, we all have blind spots or excess baggage, just in different areas at different times. I see my job as a counselor as coming along side someone, with the aid of the Holy Spirit to help identify those blind spots and equip the person with the tools to move from where they are to where they want to be. I wish I had a "holy zapper" so I could just "fix" someone. However, it most often takes more time for change to occur. The goal is for growth and progress.
I appreciate the opportunity that I have in counseling to walk a few miles with people. I commit to give my best input and to faithfully pray for each person I see and for the time I spend in the counseling room with them.
