Welcome to Hoag Counseling services. What a joy it is to be able to provide therapy, guidance, mentoring and coaching for adult individuals and couples on a host of issues, many of which are outlined on my "services" page.
I specialize in Christian counseling, application of spiritual disciplines and incorporation of living intentionally in daily life. It is only through being fully aware of the gift of uniqueness of each person's life that we can begin to lay hold of real and lasting peace that transcends our circumstances.
I am a licensed professional counselor in private practice. As a counselor, I see my mission as facilitating healing of painful emotions, releasing past circumstances, restoring healthy relationships, retraining the mind, and ultimately embracing intimacy with God, self and others. The highest goal of Christian counseling is to help people move to personal wholeness, interpersonal competence, mental stability, and spiritual maturity.
Living a joyful, contented and abundant life is not about overcoming our circumstances, increasing our level of self-esteem or improving our momentary level of happiness. Overflowing joy comes from harnessing the freedom to enjoy the gift of life to its fullest, regardless of the circumstances we find ourselves in. This is my passion: to encourage my clients to come face-to-face with the gift of their own uniqueness, to take pleasure in who they have been created to be, to discover their sweet spot in what they have been created to do, and then to find satisfaction in enjoying the distinctiveness of those they live with and love. Through mutual love and respect, honor and cherishing, we can be restored to the joy of what it means to be fully human and fully alive.
