Why pastoral counseling? Life can be difficult. Sometimes we just need someone with whom we can be gut-level honest and who will walk alongside us in those difficult times. Pastoral counseling may be right for you, whether an individual or a couple, if you desire to speak with someone who understands the importance and benefits of an ancient faith, as well as, the helpfulness of modern counseling theory. No matter what your rank or religious persuasion, you will be treated with gracious respect. Counseling may address such issues as: difficulty with reintegration, marital stressors, pre-marital counseling, affair recovery, compulsive behaviors, trauma recovery, combat trauma, PTSD, or caregiver burnout. Trauma, PTSD, anxiety, phobias, and some addictions have been successfully treated with EMDR.
