“True doctrine, understood, changes attitudes and behavior.
“The study of the doctrines of the gospel will improve behavior quicker than a study of behavior will improve behavior. … That is why we stress so forcefully the study of the doctrines of the gospel”
Boyd K. Packer of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles
I have seen the fruits of that statement time and time again! The principles of the Gospel of Jesus Christ can heal anything if we know how to use them. Joseph Smith taught that the saints often lack knowledge sufficient to fight the adversary.
I help individuals, couples and families identify and apply those powerful, healing doctrines and principles of the gospel in very real, practical ways, for lasting results! It has been so rewarding to witness hundreds of lives change, and the generational ripple-effects of those changes over the years!
I teach a Christ-Like way of being that governs healthy relationships and peace of mind. This solution-based approach focuses on the clients’ goals and future more than their problems and past.
We learn from our PAST,
focus on principle-based living in the PRESENT moment,
to create a better FUTURE…
A GOOD LIFE!!
This approach is positive, hopeful, refreshing and even fun. There is no failure, only feedback! Life gives us powerful learning and growth opportunities. Together we take difficult, painful, overwhelming circumstances and create an individual plan that will invite the Enabling Power of the Atonement to provide healing and growth. As children of our loving Heavenly Father, we are entitled to Peace, Joy and Love!
Some of the issues I have great success with:
addictions/unwanted behaviors and morality challenges including pornography & masturbation (click SONS OF HELAMAN for more info)
children and teens
marriage and family issues
sexual, physical, emotional abuse
When Is It Appropriate To Seek Professional Help?
It is natural to feel resistant to seeking professional help for life’s challenges. We want to be self-reliant, and we must always turn to the Savior, and at times, His ordained servants when facing serious life challenges. The brethren have counseled us to prayerfully seek professional help when life’s challenges become overwhelming and beyond the scope of our knowledge and/or ability to deal with them.
We are asked to be discerning, and we must be careful in this day and age. The philosophies of the world (meaning philosophies and practices that are contrary to gospel doctrines) are deceptive and dangerous. It is necessary to be prayerful when seeking out help for persistent life challenges.
My services as a professional counselor are not a replacement for the church or its ordained ecclesiastical leaders in any way. I am simply here to help people put into daily practice true principles that will help them heal and grow. I help people facilitate powerful true principles on a daily basis that are necessary to affect powerful change! These principles are in harmony with LDS doctrine. They combine scientific evidence of how our brains and bodies function with powerful true doctrines that govern self mastery and the enabling power of the atonement of Jesus Christ in all areas of our lives.
I teach people how to practice fighting the enemy and access the Lord’s enabling power on a daily basis, in all situations throughout life! These are powerful, essential practices that we all must eventually learn in order to successfully make it through this mortal experience, and back to our Heavenly Father. Many of these principles and practices are things that perhaps we are learning in church, and through our own personal gospel studies and inspiration. These may be nothing new to many people, but for those who have found themselves in bondage to persistent, unmanageable thoughts, emotions, relationship challenges, and/or deviant behaviors, etc., it has been extremely effective to have the support of a professional helping the individual to put into place daily practices that are necessary to healing and effectively governing their lives and enabling them to experience peace and joy!
