Fonda Hart, RN, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Introduction to Therapy and the Services of Fonda Hart, LMFT

Fonda Hart has been providing therapy to children, adolescents and adults since 1995, and received her MFT license in 2002.

Fonda works from a “strengths-based” treatment paradigm. In addition to assessing the
presenting problems that prompt a person to initiate counseling, she assesses the strengths and assets a person brings to the process – personally or in their environment – and builds upon those in addressing the issues needing to be resolved.

Fonda is experienced in providing EMDR to adults and children. She has worked with many clients to provide trauma resolution and anxiety management using this and other interventions.

Having spent several years living and working internationally, Fonda enjoys working therapeutically with those who are living and working cross-culturally. She is familiar with the dynamics specific to being in full-time and/or cross-cultural ministry and is experienced in counseling missionaries and pastors and their families. And she enjoys working with TCK’s.

As a follower of Christ, Fonda considers her worldview to be “theocentric”, i.e. God is central to the way she lives her life, which includes her approach to therapy. However, she does not generally provide Scripture during therapy sessions. Many people have been wounded in the Church or by Christians, or have distorted beliefs that influence the way they understand Scripture. Simply providing Scripture runs the risk of reinforcing the distortions in a person’s understanding of God or of Scripture. Fonda incorporates the timeless truth of biblical principles as she works to assist clients toward healing and wholeness. One anticipated outcome is that the grid through which a person experiences God and His word becomes clearer, allowing the person to experience a more emotionally healthy spirituality.

For therapy to be most effective, it is important that you feel at ease with your therapist. You need to feel that it is a good "fit," and that you can trust your therapist with the process. Feel free to contact Fonda to discuss your needs, and to see if you think her therapy methods will be a good fit for you.
