Briarwood Counseling is a counseling practice that offers individual, marital, and family therapy, in person and online. Briarwood strives to create a Christ centered environment where clients are reminded of how special and important God has created them to be, while still utilizing cutting edge research about neurobiology and evidence based practices. God has gifted us with a lot of advances through science. Understanding how our bodies, minds and souls are connected allows us to practice mental health in a faith filled way. In therapy, we talk about learning how we can utilize the gifts we have innately within us to help overcome obstacles and struggles - even when they are deep rooted. Many struggles we have with feelings of depression and anxiety are rooted in our struggles to trust God and trust that He has made us beautiful and holy in His image. Additionally, we experience sin in this world and as a result In the couples and family work we do at Briarwood - for premarital work, marriage counseling and even in co-parenting relationships, we discuss what it looks like to honor and love others as Christ loves us. Prayer and scripture is offered as encouragement and support during counseling when appropriate. Schedule your session today!

Why I Became a Professional Christian Therapist

When people seek out counseling and therapy - the thing they most want is access to hope. I believe there is no great hope that in Christ Jesus. Regardless of what we are facing - even in our doubts and when we feel far away from God - we can utilize our faith and lean into it to heal, grow and change.
