Sterling Funk, MA, LMFT (Bilingual)
Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist #LMFT-100502
For 10 years I’ve had the privilege of working with adults, teens, and families both in English and Spanish in such areas as anxiety, depression, PTSD, motivation, self-esteem, difficult life changes, men issues, value shifts and much more. Taking the plunge and getting into therapy is the first step in trying to change the direction of your life. As your counselor, I will walk with you through the valleys you are facing. With empathy and compassion, I will work with you to establish a treatment plan specific to your needs and help you take the next steps to reach your goals.
Carlsbad – Thu & Fri
I am a bilingual Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) who is committed to supporting teens, adults, families, and groups on their journey toward mental well-being and spiritual growth, providing guidance and understanding every step of the way. I offer professional Christian counseling services in both English and Spanish. Whether you’re dealing with anxiety, depression, men’s issues, porn addiction, trauma, ADHD, relationship problems, or other concerns, I would be honored to work with you. Together we will determine the best path forward to help you experience the growth, healing, and restoration you desire.
My Goal as a Christian Counselor
My goal as your counselor is to help you develop strategies to deal with life, whether it be through coping skills or finding ways to heal with God’s help. My hope is that through our time together, you will come to a deeper understanding of how your relationship with God can help you find something (or rather Someone) to depend on instead of yourself.
What I Offer in Christian Counseling
I offer a safe, non-judgmental space for you to explore your challenges, develop healthy coping strategies, and find hope and peace through a deepened connection with God. After our first session, I will follow up and review your goals and the progress you have made, whether we follow up with homework or compare assessments. Throughout our sessions I’ll help you discover more about your personal beliefs and struggles with God to help you strengthen that relationship and resolve any questions through your own insight.
My Approach to Christian Counseling
By taking a Christian approach to counseling, my clients benefit by having greater resources with which to deal with life’s challenges. Whether from their church community, Christian counseling, and/or their personal relationship with God, I believe clients who access these resources generally find greater meaning in this life.
