Tres Adames, MDiv, BCPC
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 certified (BCPC #0791) by the 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 a member of the Association for Clinical Pastoral Education (ACPE) and a member of the American Association of Christian Counselors (AACC). 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 previously worked at Arizona Baptist Children's Services and Family Ministries, and 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.
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.

"Its only been by the grace of God that we were lead to Tres. With much needed guidance and help in many areas, Tres has been able to help us see God in thru our current situations. And their are many! I would strongly recommend him. And I have worked along side many counselors, psychologist and therapist in my career, but its wonderful when you can hear a godly view on life vs the worlds view on life and how to live it. God bless u Brother Tres." —Devon H. (Google.com)
"Tres was recommended by a friend whose son had met with him - at first, unwillingly, but who later began asking to meet with Tres. Our son had the same experience. Tres appears to have a sense of understanding that helps his clients feel comfortable talking with him. We were personally impressed by Tres' writings posted on his website, which gave us confidence that he would understand our son's issues and be able to help him. Tres also recommended some reading for us that has improved our relationship with our son. Our experience with Tres has been limited to our teenager, but we would highly recommend him to anyone who has a teenager that needs help dealing with the teenage years." —Anthem Lease (Google.com)
"I highly recommend Tres Adames with Arizona Christian Counseling. I was very uncomfortable with seeing a counselor at first but Tres made me feel like I was just talking to a friend. He was very kind, professional, and extremely knowledgeable. He helped me thru one of the hardest times in my life and I couldn't have gotten thru it without God, but it also would have been very difficult without Tres help. Tres always encouraged me to pray and listen to what God is telling me. He has been a great counselor and friend during my difficult situation. I am very grateful to have met him." —Shelly M.
