About cindajustsaid

I am the founder of a biblical counseling ministry. As a counselor to adolescents, young adults and senior women, we seek Christ's desire for God's will and way in your life when counseling, advising and praying for health and healing. Mentally, emotionally, physically, intellectually and most importantly, spiritually, my method of counseling lifts you up and places you in God's capable hands. I've counseled, guided and mentored people with anxiety issues, medical conditions that cause delay in growth, loneliness and depression, always showing how we trust in our amazing God. By use of The Holy Scriptures, in counseling, I assist the Lord's work in your life through His healing power of the Word. In our counseling hour, we get to know each other, pray, find scripture to guide, come up with a plan no matter what you are going through.
