Tres Adames, MDiv, BCPC
Qualifications and Experience
Hi, my name is Tres Adames and I am a Master's-level Board Certified Pastoral Counselor and the Founder and Director of Arizona Christian Counseling. I specialize in working with individuals struggling with emotional and relational issues. I am a member of the American Association of Christian Counselors (AACC), and am board certified (BCPC #0791) by the AACC International Board of Christian Care (IBCC) Board of Christian Professional and Pastoral Counselors. I received my Master of Divinity (MDiv) from Wesley Biblical Seminary, and Bachelor of Arts from Asbury University. I am also a Practitioner Member of the Association for Clinical Pastoral Education (ACPE).
I previously served on the Board of the Pacific Region of the American Association of Pastoral Counselors (AAPC) before it was consolidated into ACPE this year. I also worked at Arizona Baptist Children's Services and Family Ministries as a pastoral counselor, and was on faculty in a teaching assistantship in the College of Theology at Grand Canyon University. I am a United Methodist with previous pastoral and leadership experience in the Free Methodist Church and the Church of the Nazarene.
Who I Work With
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 seek to be nonjudgmental and unshockable as a counselor. 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.
Though my background and approach is centered on integrating spirituality with emotional health, I welcome people of all faiths or non-faith. I want you to feel comfortable opening up about anything you are going through. I plan on sharing some insight and wisdom so you can find strength for today and hope for tomorrow. I'm excited to be on this journey and am passionate about helping you weave a transformative story of your own.
