FIT COUNSELING LLC

Find Your Fit. Find Freedom in Truth.

Professional Counseling in Central Iowa.

Fit Counseling was established out of a passion for supporting individuals and families as they strive to be healthy and well. Fit stands for freedom in truth and represents a primary piece of what it takes to be healthy and to have healthy relationships. Oftentimes our ability to be healthy physically, emotionally, relationally, and spiritually is hampered by unseen internal struggles, struggles that we have all felt at times. Fit Counseling will support you by providing insight and encouragement as you take steps towards freedom and wellness.

BRENT DOUGLAS, MA, LMHC

I entered the people helping profession out of care for people and a curiosity in how God created us to function. As I studied psychology and the Bible during my undergraduate education at Grace University, I recognized common themes of hurt and brokenness, but more importantly, common themes of restoration and hope. This motivates me to help people recognize where healing may need to take place and to provide encouragement and direction in that pursuit. My passion to walk beside individuals, couples, and families has continued to grow. Early in my career, I continued my education by pursuing my Masters in Counseling through Liberty University.


Since moving back to the Des Moines area with my wife about a decade ago, I have worked with people of all ages and backgrounds through a wide variety of struggles. In addition to my training and work in a clinical office setting, I have provided counseling in homes, schools, and churches. I have a desire to stand beside others as they work hard to overcome anxiety, depression, spiritual battles, marriage problems, sexual issues, trauma, abuse, and a wide variety of other hurts and struggles.

In my personal life, I am a husband, a father, a foster parent, and a servant in our local church. In my leisure time, I enjoy escaping into the outdoors.

 

INDIVIDUAL COUNSELING

Freedom and relief from emotional struggles is possible. Anxiety, depression, and other internal conflicts are very real and more common than most people realize. You do not have to be alone in the struggle. We will come alongside you as you move towards a healthy and satisfying life.

RELATIONSHIP COUNSELING

You may be looking towards the possibility of marriage or may have been married for years. You may be struggling with parenting, extended family, friends or any number of other relationships. Healthy connections and communication are essential for personal wellness. Fit Counseling can help.

OUR APPROACH

Fit Counseling is built on a Christian foundation of truth. If you have questions about what it means to be spiritually healthy, we would be happy to support you in that journey. The Bible, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and other techniques we use place a strong focus on victory, health, and freedom that come from replacing unhealthy or unrealistic thinking with truth.
