Counseling and Coaching
You're looking for hope.
We're here for you.
At times we find ourselves uncertain, discouraged, or depleted. Other times, we just need someone to help us get from here to there, uncover blindspots, or hold us accountable. When you invite another to walk with you in your ambiguity, your pain, and the journey to more freedom, a sacred space is created for a transforming work to happen.
Whether we meet virtually or in-person, we look forward to connecting!

Frequently asked questions
What should I expect if I reach out to schedule a session?
First of all, we're glad you're reaching out. Once we receive your initial email, we will send you a response that includes answers to any of your questions, confirmation of the session rate, and a link to fill out an intake. (An intake provides basic personal information, appropriate background related to you seeking counseling or coaching, and an agreement page.) If after that you'd like to schedule a session, we will inform you of the soonest available appointment times.
What is the difference between counseling and coaching?
Great question! Both are effective ways of unlocking stuck places in your life and relationships. Counseling focuses on unresolved pain points of your past or current situation. It often involves deeper reflection, growing awareness, and grief work. It is healing driven. Coaching focuses on closing the gap between where you are and where you want to be as it relates to your future goals. It involves powerful questioning, high accountability, and is goal driven.
What is your approach to counseling?
Foremost, we want to make sure you feel seen, deeply heard and unhurried. Our focus is entirely on you and what you bring to each session. We integrate Internal Family Systems, Family Systems, Cognitive-Behavioral, and Experiential modalities. Interweaving Biblical truths is a hallmark to our practice, yet we respect your preferences (which we confirm before our first session.) Lastly, we place high value in what happens in-between sessions. Our clients understand the power of relevant assignments as part of their unlocking transformation.
Do you offer a sliding scale?
At this time, we do not. One of the key reasons is that we also run a non-profit that provides restorative soul-care to ministry leaders and their marriages through professional counseling and customized, private retreats. By you paying the full rate, it allows us to offer scholarships to missionaries, pastors, and non-profit leaders that often have very limited funds. You can learn more at http://www.1010ministries.org.
Do you take insurance?
No, we do not. We accept cash, check, Venmo, and every major credit card.
What are your credentials?
We are both Board Certified Christian Counselors (IBBC) and Certified Life Coaches (ICF). We are currently receiving training towards a certification in Experiential Therapy (Onsite Academy). Joey has a Masters of Divinity in Pastoral Care and Counseling (Fuller Theological Seminary). Robyn has a Masters of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy (Fuller Theological Seminary).
