How does a Christian Therapist like Dr. Gibson work with me?

You are waiting in line in a terminal. Another traveler rushes up to you, crying out urgently, “Where’s my gate?”

Do you answer, “That depends on where you’re coming from”? No, you ask, “Where do you want to go?”

So it is in the counseling I call “Vitality Therapy.” After I hear and understand your problem, I steer our conversations toward a vision of how your future would be without the problems currently holding you back. As a Christian therapist I aim to bring you to “you at your best.”

My guidance of our conversations seeks to inspire:

  • Vision in place of hopelessness
  • Passion in place of “What’s the use?”
  • Dignity in place of shame

Many of those I counsel come to me at a time of crisis in their lives. We typically meet six times over three months. After that, they often tell me they are ready to handle things on their own, and that it’s nice to know they can call me for an appointment any time they need me.
