A Note From Adina

My ideal client is willing to pursue growth, and wants to modify patterns of thought, behavior and feeling that are no longer serving them as they wish. They are flexible, open-minded and ready to try something new. They see failure not as an ending point or self-defining, but as part of the path to success. I specialize in working with clients dealing with depression and anxiety with or without a history of trauma. I am especially suited to treat self-negativity, feelings of inferiority, anxiety, as well as finishing old business so as to move on to new things.

In my mind therapy is an alliance in which we work together to discover your strengths, relieve unbearable aloneness, encourage your innate strivings toward health, and build new confidence in feeling and being in relationship. Every person has a need to be known and heard in an authentic, non-judgmental way.

There have been many influences on my thinking about therapy, most prominently my own life journey of healing transformation. My experiences as a child of God, a parent, as a wife, a traveler, and a gardener have illuminated for me the endless horizons of human possibility.

Counselor Competency

MyCounselor has as its aim to be the gold standard in faith-based mental health. Our counselors are required to have undergraduate studies in theology, practical ministry, or psychology and have completed a graduate (master’s) degree in mental health (professional counseling, clinical social work, marriage & family therapy, etc.).

  • We only hire around 2% of applicants
  • Require at least a Master’s Degree in Mental Health
  • 2-Year Post-Graduate Residency in Neuroscience Informed Christian Counseling® (NICC)
  • 400+ hours of Continuing Education each year

After submitting an application package that includes transcripts, references, and video responses to a structured interview, qualified candidates are invited into a multi-stage interview process. During the process candidates will meet with clinical supervisors, perform a mock therapy session, and participate in a training with the MyCounselor clinical team. If advanced from the final interview with the Director of Clinical Services, candidates are offered a position on the clinical team and matriculated into the MyCounselor residency.

During residency counselors complete multiple rotations of clinical training and experience with specific populations, including individuals, couples, families, and teens. Specifically, residents are trained in the MyCounselor proprietary model of care: Neuroscience Informed Christian Counseling® (NICC) as applied in practice with various presenting issues.

The thorough training our counselors receive in a broad array of specialized rotations equips them to address counseling concerns ranging from the common to the complex.

Recent Testimonial

Adina is very caring, and talks to us like we matter. She is very warm, and works with both of us by giving us both time to talk. Unfortunately, our marriage is to the point that when we try to talk about our issues it turns into yelling, and that is something I do not tolerate. This counseling experience has let both of us speak about feelings we have not shared before. I highly recommend Christian Counseling and Adina will calmly let you speak separately without being interrupted.
