What Clients Say

"Sherena has been a blessing for me. She has a knack for gentle guidance, the ability to open life views, and a loving personality. I appreciate her keeping the 'Big Picture' in mind while helping muck through the details of daily life. As a result, I am empowered to be a stronger me with Christ as the base."


“Working with Crystal has been one of the greatest blessings in my life. I knew right away that I had found the fit I was desperately searching for! She listens, encourages, challenges, and equips you with tools to fight what life throws at you with a Kingdom perspective. I have come to understand my identity in Christ and confidence in the calling he has placed on my life. Her care is professional, efficient, and kind. I leave each session feeling empowered to do the work and dive deeper into what we discussed. Working with her has been one of the best things I’ve done! Grateful is an understatement.”

"I would say the ability to get an outside healthy perspective is extremely helpful. It is also helpful to have a faith-based counselor who can guide me with the Lord. Brian can give counsel without bias and in an impactful way. Couldn’t recommend him enough!"

My daughter is finishing up her time at TCU, and began meeting with Emily during her sophomore year of school. She recently finished her last session with Emily, and I wanted to write and say how grateful we are for the incredible counsel she has given over the last few years. Through our daughter's counseling experience we have seen her transform– from a very low point, to a place of strength, resilience, and confidence in who she is in Christ. The transition from high school to college proved to be a challenge, and we knew right away that investing in Christian counseling was invaluable. We can never really thank Emily enough for her counsel during this season of my daughter's life!

“My counseling experience with Joel has been the most helpful thing I have ever done for my mental health. He continues to point our sessions back to Christ and reminds me how mental health and spiritual health are intertwined.”
