The thoughts surrounding our past experiences and upbringing can contain toxic beliefs. These beliefs can sabotage our relationships, even our relationship with ourself, all in the name of "safety." Our approach is to identify the foundational cracks in your identity caused by these toxic beliefs, and curate a plan for healing.
Our counseling focus is to help you correct your thought process, reconcile your feelings, and develop healthy behaviors. We achieve this by providing a safe atmosphere, evaluating your concerns, implementing relevant therapy techniques and customizing your resources.

Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Through counseling and treatment, we are able to help you recover motivation, perspective, and joy that you are designed to have in your life.

At the age twenty-one I convinced a close friend not to commit suicide. I had always had a compassion for those in mental torment. Four years after this occurrence I graduated from Laurel University, Cum Laude, with a double major in Counseling & Biblical Studies.
I led a suicide prevention campaign for over 5 years, with over 100 people choosing life, and facilitated numerous workshops for non-mental health professionals on how to help their peers with mental afflictions.
For 15 years now, I've had the pleasure to walk a counseling journey, professionally, with numerous people. Time and time again I have watched people walk in freedom and take back ownership of their lives, thoughts and behaviors.
Since high school as a peer mentor, service club leader, and groups facilitator I've been giving advice, offering supplemental perspective, and voicing concerns that I discerned.
I've traveled to multiple countries for cultural reconciliation and ministry, and worked for several years as a child advocate. I've written numerous curriculums geared toward growth and improved quality of life.
For 15 years now I've mentored and counseled kids, teens and marriages and it's been incredibly fruitful.
I graduated from Indiana Wesleyan with
Christian Education and a double minor in Intercultural Studies and International and Community Development.
Brent has served in Pastoral ministry for 16 years. He graduated from Indiana Wesleyan University with a Christian Ministries Degree and has since served in various ministry roles including, pastoral counseling, discipleship training, teaching and preaching. He has a heart for the nations —Israel first and then the Middle East. He also is passionate about families and couples experiencing reconciliation and walking in wholeness.
Skye graduated from Indiana Wesleyan University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing. She worked the first 8 years of their marriage as a nurse and spent the last 8 years as a full-time Pastor’s wife and mom of 3. Because of her nursing education and her understanding of how the physical body works, she is often able to make connections to how the Lord originally intended the spiritual body (the Church) to operate. During the past 16 years, she has served in ministry alongside Brent and has helped him with pre- and post- marital pastoral counseling.
Together, Brent and Skye enjoy leading their small house church each week. They both particularly have hearts to see people experience inner-healing and to see marriages and families restored. They are Mom and Dad to three amazing kids— Lily, Liam, and Silas. Brent and Skye firmly believe that ministry starts in the home and that from there, ministry will expand to their extended family— the Family of God.
I am a United States Navy veteran who developed a passion for psychology. My psychology passion turned to a ministry passion upon being a Christian summer camp teen counselor, which I continued for 15 years.
After graduating from Houghton College with a Youth Ministry degree as well as minors in Biblical Studies and Psychology, I further went on to complete my Master of Arts in Religion in Theology degree from Liberty University. I am also a certified Biblical Counselor through the NACC.
I have had the privilege to travel to multiple countries and learn how culture influences thoughts, behaviors, and ultimately an individual’s identity. This unique opportunity has provided me with the ability to connect and relate to individuals across many demographics.
It is my goal to use the tools and the gifts given to me to help build, guide, and equip others to realize and gain freedom for their lives from what ever struggle they are held captive.
The main catalyst to our thoughts is information received. We experience hundreds if not thousands of stimuli through our 5 senses everyday. The alarm going off, the smell of coffee, the contents of emails and social media on our phone, news sources, interactions with friends and family, music, fresh clothes out of the dryer; the list goes on.
In order to efficiently and effectively change your mental, emotional, and relational health, you need to take an extended period of time and scale back the amount of stimuli coming in. Additionally, you can begin to increase the health of what you receive by allowing it to be more, “natural.”
The smell of fresh rainfall is more natural then air freshener or a candle. The gaze into a crackling fire is more natural than watching a youtube video. The rooting of your feet in cool grass is more natural than a comfortable shoe or fabric. Connection with creation reduces anxiety and inflammation. Wilderness Therapy combines a drastic change in pace with the tranquility of the outdoors, and the technique of the counseling office. This creates a weekend experience that realigns the heart and mind into an asset for all your relationships.
While on the trip you’ll learn how to develop your mindset for each day, process and heal from your past wounds and traumas, and enhance your courage to pursue the life you desire. You will experience this through a true connection with the Holy Spirit, establishing a healthy understanding of yourself, and applying the right personal boundaries with current relationships.
Each trip can be curated to meet your needs and comfort level, from a relaxing stay in a cabin, to the exploration of a hike and camp. Experiences can range from 1-3 night commitments, and a financial commitment can be $300+ and includes food, resources and accommodations.
In Office Sessions take place at our High Point, NC location. Your session is held in a comfortable and relaxing residential location that is beautifully renovated to meet your counseling needs. Although there are exceptions, most clients average about 10 weeks of counseling before finding themselves ready to live the life they desire. Since no one person is the same, the process of being equipped to deal with life is a little more multi-dimensional than it is linear. However, and in no specific order, here is what you can expect to cover:
-Building Trust in your Counselor
-Personal History Evaluation
-How to Master your Emotions
-Thought Evaluation & Correction
-Neurocycling & Mind-Management
When ability, transportation, circumstance, or location prohibit you from in person sessions, we offer the convenience of virtual sessions via zoom. Once your session is booked, you will receive a zoom link to your meeting.
Everything you can expect from an in person session will be made available via zoom, but please make sure you have a reliable connection. Sign on to your meeting 5 minutes early to detect any technical issues with sound or video.
For some, Telehealth that can be accessed right from your computer, or hand held device best suits the needs our clients. To fulfill this need we offer sessions accessible by chat via a platform called Discord.
