Teaching new patterns of living and relating that line up with God’s Word and purpose for their life.


Are you ready for something to change?

Living out God’s purpose comes with it’s challenges. The Christian life isn’t always a walk in the park. Everyone faces challenges…This is where we sort through the challenges and seek  how God’s Word speaks to each of our lives. Let’s pair truth with encouragement and walk together.

About the Counselor/Coach

I am a licensed clinical therapist (California) and life coach, specializing in Christian based counseling/coaching. I am also EMDR trained (local clients only). 

I teach people new patterns of relating that line up with God’s Word and His purpose for their life. This has been my passion for 17 years.

I am passionate about what I do because, like you, I’ve walked through the hard places.

In my local office (Redlands, Ca) and online, I see adult individuals (not offering marriage counseling at this time). I am a licensed therapist in California. 

The best way to describe my private practice would be…

1.) All counsel lines up with the Word of God first and foremost. The Bible is the authority on truth and living your best life. 

2.)It is also important that you tell your story, time is spent in talking and processing because that is how we get beneath the surface.

3.)You will always get actionable tools and steps. People seek counseling/coaching because they want something to change. Diving beneath the surface and becoming better equipped with the right tools can change your life!

I believe cognitive therapy lines up with what God’s Word has been saying all along… The thoughts we think have a huge impact on our emotions and actions (Proverbs 4:23). 

Encouragement is a key component of our time together. Challenges arise in life and relationships everyday. Having additional support as we navigate through life makes the challenges we face less difficult.


This is what I believe and use as the foundation of all counsel offered:

I believe in the Holy Bible as the infallible, God-breathed inspired truth, perfect for correction and training in righteousness and the final authority on faith and life. 

I believe that the one eternal God exists in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. I believe that man is created in the image of God. 

I believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, sent to save the world from sin. I believe that the Holy Spirit indwells all those who receive Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. 

As believers, we are called to be in the world, but not of this world and are to be separated from it. 

I believe that true faith is accompanied by good works. Good works do not earn salvation. 

I believe that Christians are called to share the Good News of the redemptive power of Jesus Christ.

Improved Thoughts

The things we believe and think will influence our emotions and actions. 

Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. Proverbs 4:23

Improved Emotions

The farther away our thoughts veer from the Truth of God’s Word the more it negatively impacts our emotions. Leading to increased fear, hopelessness and sadness.

Improved Behavior

Thoughts affect emotions and emotions affect actions. When we identify the thoughts and beliefs that are not aligned with Scripture, we will work together to align ourselves with the Truth. That’s when things begin changing.

What others are saying…

“The most helpful thing about coaching is having an unbiased person give feedback in my search for solutions in my day to day life. Naturally, I have blind spots in my judgement and Sunshyne helps me to see what I might miss or not be willing to admit.”
Kayla M.
“I appreciate Sunshyne’s expert advice and practical suggestions to improve my thought life.”
Shannon G.
“I liked how Sunshyne always!! pointed us towards Jesus. She even drew us examples! I could tell Sunshyne really cared.”
“I love how we end every session with prayer and Sunshyne is praying for me through the week.”

God’s Transforming Work

“being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” Philippians 1:6

All work done in sessions is done in dependence on God’s wisdom, strength and empowerment. You will begin to grasp onto His Word, prayerfully dependent on His enablement to open the eyes of your heart.

It is a privilege to walk alongside you and offer encouragement while pointing you to the love and truth of God.

I can answer any questions you may have. You can share a little bit about what you’d like to focus on during sessions. This gives both of us an opportunity to determine if we would be a good fit.
