Looking for Christian counselling?

At Cairis you’ll find a patient and gentle approach to Christian counselling founded on the belief that divine grace heals.  We were all created to demonstrate love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, and self-control.  If we don’t there is a part of us that is stuck in fear, shame, or pain.  If we stay stuck in those things for too long, we start to lose hope and come to believe that we aren’t good enough to be loved by family, friends, or God.  The key is to help each one of those parts heal.

Sometimes we have parts of ourselves that are in conflict with each other.  We end up doing that one thing we don’t want to do, and another part hammers us with self-condemnation.  Other parts are overwhelmed by the fear and traumas of the past and have a difficultly letting up.   Sometimes life just hurts, and we don’t know how to let the hurt go.

In my approach we address pain, fear and unhelpful beliefs in a holistic way that bring together your heart, mind, soul, and body.  By releasing these burdens we let go of the shame that make it difficult to be our true selves.   If we bring all these things together in divine grace, we can experience powerful transformation.  With my approach to Christian counselling I integrate the best insights of trauma informed practice with Christian spirituality.

About me

I graduated with a B.A. in Biblical Studies and Christian Ministries, and received my Masters in Counselling Degree from Briercrest Seminary.  I have decades of experience working in Christian higher education, and helped start and support a network of house-churches.  Through my years I have mentored and supported a number of people, including many of those who have suffered from spiritual abuse.

You’ll find a safe space at Cairis counselling regardless of where you are in your faith journey.  I firmly believe that shame and condemnation can do nothing good for you.

Online sessions are available to anyone in Canada and the US and locally in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.  Feel free to learn more about me and my services.

I offer the first session for only $60 so can see if there is a good fit without having to spend to much.  I offer discounts for low income and student clients.

Looking for a female Christian therapist?

With the closure of Christian Counselling Saskatoon  it can be hard to find a faith based Christian therapist.  If you are looking for a female counsellor I can recommend some.  Two women I hold in high regard are Trish White  of Trellis Coaching and Counselling and Eliisha Ens  of Mariposa Counselling.  Both offer counseling for a wide variety of concerns.
