Mrs. Kristen Simons

Licensed Professional Counselor | MA, LPC

Need to turn things around and fast? I offer a Three day (Fri-Sun) marriage intensive using the book, “How We Love.”16 hrs. for $1,000. I work best with clients who are longing for the transformation that is promised in God’s word, but have struggled to overcome obstacles from their past. Anxiety, depression, relationship problems, and addictive behaviors often have their roots in the complicated circumstances of our unique story. Individuals who are interested in discovering the rich treasure that can be found in their relationship with the Lord as He leads us on a journey of healing and wholeness will thrive in my counseling practice. I find that so many people are simply desperate to experience the grace and rest that is ours as we quit trying to be “enough” and allow Christ to be all sufficient.

My preferred method of counseling begins with teaching clients to pay attention to what their own heart, mind and spirit is telling them in their faith journey; examining their thoughts and feelings not because they are a trustworthy guide, but because they will give us clues as to how they have found themselves in their current distress. My favorite tool to use with clients is a JOURNAL. I teach my clients how to use reflective writing, written prayers, laments, simple drawing, poetry, and spiritual exercises to help bring to light the hidden obstacles that are keeping them from wholeness.
