I love the story in the Bible in John 5 of the man who lay helplessly by the pool of Bethesda. Apparently, this wasn’t just any pool. It was rumored that angels came periodically and stirred the water and whoever dove into the moving water received miraculous healing.
However, this one man, sick from the same disease for thirty-eight years couldn’t ever make it to the pool fast enough. It was a bit of a hopeless situation for him. But Jesus, as always, changes everything. The Bible says, “When Jesus saw him lying there and knew it had already been there a long time, he said to him, ‘Do you want to be healed?’” Even though the man responded with his excuses and despair, Jesus invited him into his own healing process. Jesus instructed him to, “Get up! Pick up your mat and walk.”
Do you want to be healed?
The Bible speaks of our human heart being broken and our spirits crushed. Emotional wounds, lead to disease, pain and suffering, broken relationships, unmet needs, unresolved issues can steal, kill, and destroy the abundant life Jesus promised those who followed Him. Do you tolerate these issues in your soul watching the moving water enjoyed by others while you are stuck on your mat year after year?
Do you struggle with External Conflicts:
- Control and manipulation
- Church hurt
- Doormat Syndrome
- Toxic relationships
- Distant connection to God or others

- Eating disorders
- D.I.D. (Dissociative Identity Disorder)

What is Heart-Care Counseling?
Heart-Care Counseling is connecting the soul of man to the spirit of man through the power of Jesus. This approach draws from both spiritual healing and psychotherapy worlds to create a holistic experience.
Heart-Care Counseling seeks to meet a client where they are in their story with compassion and empathy to join them in turning the page to growth and vitality. It is the “how” to pick up your mat and it is the “how” to walk in the reality of a heart made whole.
As a trauma-informed therapist, I can assist using DBT, CBT, IFS, Adlerian, existential therapy, HeartSync, and SYMBIS. As a licensed Biblical therapist I can assist spiritual guidance, Biblical perspective and prayer. Heart-Care Counseling is a Holy Spirit led experience meeting your individual needs while setting goals for Biblical growth in truth, grace, and power to live as an overcomer in life.

Do you feel that you are constantly being dragged down by the pain of the past?
Do you feel that despite your best effort to change and experience freedom, the brokenness inside of your heart keeps causing all sorts of damage the longer it goes unhealed and it sabotages relationships, jobs, and dulls life?
