Integrating Christian Counseling into pornography addiction
Joel realized he wanted to become a counselor after he experienced counseling for himself. Seeing people change, little by little, is one of his great joys. Counseling is a process, with highs and lows. Clients may respond differently than how they used too or experience a relationship restored. Caring for clients, helping them experience freedom, is functioning out of God's design.
Joel carefully connects people and their experiences to God and his design for their life. He listens, thinks carefully, down-to-earth personally, and connects truth with love.
Outside of counseling, Joel has written many pornography addiction blogs.
