Why biblical counseling?

  • The Bible is able, powerful, living and active. For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. Hebrews 4:12
  • In the Bible, God has given us everything we need for life and godliness. His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence. 2 Peter 1:3
  • As a college student, Sydney lived with and helped friends battling eating disorders, sexual abuse, and suicide. She went to counseling with them, helped with homework, and provided suicide watch overnight.
  • In an effort to find answers, she changed my major, studied psychology and sociology at a state university, but didn’t what  she was looking for. Answers for lasting change had already been written in the Bible.

Sydney has a Bachelor of Arts degree in the social sciences with a teaching endorsement from the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley, Colorado and an Master of Arts in Biblical Counseling from Faith Bible Seminary in Lafayette, Indiana.

The book, Sanctuary: Hope and Help for Victims of Domestic Abuse, is an extension of God’s love to women who are often invisible, oppressed, and hurting. He sees. He knows. He loves. And He continues to send His Body, the church, to minister to those who need Him most.
