Christian Counseling for Pornography Addiction

  • Identify the obvious

    • often we tend to get hung up on the confusing, “Why do I keep doing this”, and never get an answer. It’s helpful to identify the things we do know: the situation(s) when I am triggered, emotions, etc.

  • Identify the confusing

    • “Why did I do it again?” Identifying this is helpful in pornography addiction because it shows how one sees change. Once I know why then I will stop! Knowing the ‘why’ does not necessarily lead to change.  Sometimes God wants to help through other means to get to the ‘why’ too. 

Christian Counseling for Anxiety and Depression

Anxiety or Depression?

  • Many struggle with each of these and sometimes during the same season of life. It’s helpful to be able to distinguish between the two. Anxiety might be leading you to feel depression or vice versa. Realizing which comes first is a great step.
