Tres Adames, MDiv, BCPC
Hi, I'm Tres (pronounced "Tress") and I am the host of Ask a Christian Counselor, a podcast on faith, counseling, spirituality, and mental health. I am also a Board Certified Pastoral Counselor and provide counseling through Arizona Christian Counseling, a pastoral counseling practice located in Phoenix, Arizona.
My Theology and Beliefs
I am a member of the United Methodist Church with previous pastoral and leadership experience in the Free Methodist Church and the Church of the Nazarene. My theology and approach is Wesleyan-Arminian. I am passionate about the integration of spirituality and mental health, and enjoy serving people and helping them connect with God on a deeper level.
My Counseling Approach
As a pastoral counselor, I specialize in one-on-one individual counseling for teenagers and adults. I also specialize in working with members of the LGBTQ community — especially those struggling to reconcile their sexual orientation and their faith. I am comfortable discussing difficult topics and enjoy helping people through the angst and confusion that comes with life. I have a desire to help others after going through my own spiritual journey of healing and transformation.
My Hope for the Podcast
I originally started the podcast in 2012 for clients of mine, to supplement the help they were already receiving in counseling. The show has expanded beyond and now reaches thousands of listeners every month around the world. My hope is to help others learn more about themselves, grow deeper spiritually and emotionally in their relationships and in their walk with God. Thank you for your support of this vital ministry.
