Christians get themselves into trouble just like everyone else. However unlike everyone else Christians have real solutions. If a trained counselor applies Scripture and the transforming power of Christ not only can we change, we can also transform our problems and ourselves. Many of my clients struggle with marriage problems,internet pornography or some other sexual issue. I am a Certified Sex Therapist and know how to help. Some Short Videos on Counseling Issues: A Man Confesses His Adultery: http://youtu.be/zE14cnGOdV8 A Couple Arguing Badly: http://youtu.be/lFw7z7V-2b A Husband Caught Using Pornography: http://youtu.be/Ld24BNl9cok
Many of my clients both adults and teens are sexual addicts that are hooked on internet pornography/ masturbation, or sexually inappropriate relationships or activities such as sexting.I can help you not only stop the addition and help you to develop good healthy relationships with others. Counseling does not take forever.
Couple counseling/marriage counseling. Usually the process goes like this: healing hurts, creating the team spirit, learning who we are, making a relationship vision, and finally making the vision work. I do not patch up relationships. I help to recreate new ones from the mess of old ones.
