Biblical wisdom for life’s most difficult issues
- Grief care
- Marital and pre-marital counseling
- Depression care
- Addiction care
― Paul David Tripp
I understand that depression may range from situational to clinical depression. My biblical counseling approach focuses on the heart-level influences. Please know that if I discern that you are clinically depressed, then I will encourage you to also see a psychiatrist, who can address the biological and chemical influences. Together, we can provide a holistic approach to your depression care.
If you’re struggling with an addiction to food, entertainment, drugs, alcohol, sex, or anything else, then I help you work through the heart issues that manifest themselves through these behaviors. With substance addiction in particular, I work in concert with psychiatrists and/or organizations that can help you recover.
“Ben is a wonderful counselor. When he counseled me, I always left with a feeling of hope and relief from the issues that troubled me. He always helped me see God in my adverse circumstances, and it helped me remember that in the darkest times in my life, I was not abandoned.”
“A phrase I have heard Ben use could almost serve as a motto for his powerful approach to counseling: ‘God is in the transformation business.’ Ben is as well versed in the tools and terminology of secular psychology as anyone, and he deploys them to good effect when appropriate, but only as supplements to the main course of treatment, not as the treatment itself.In his world, mental and spiritual health come from exposure to the truth, and truth is embodied in God, God’s Word and the person of His Son. Ben has true skill at helping others strain their experiences ‘through the grid of the Gospel’ and thus to sense how the enduring truth that healed the lame, brought sight to the blind and conquered death, has the power to transform today.
“Empathetic, down-to-earth, fun to talk to, and armed with as much good humor as knowledge, Ben is a patient and sure-footed guide on the challenging journey into the truth that frees us from the games we play on ourselves. I could not recommend him more highly.”
