Whose story are you living?

When the responsibilities pile up and the “shoulds” creep in, it’s easy to ask, ‘What happened to me?’ or ‘Why do I feel so alone?’ 

When you’re struggling with disconnection, anxiety, people pleasing, built-up anger or resentment, it can leave you wondering what happened to the person who used to love life – who used to enjoy the simple things? 

We help you rediscover your voice, and find the confidence to write the story you want to live. 

We help you make it yours.

About Us

Why Work With Love Your Story Christian Counseling Services

Sarah Proemsey, LICENSED PROFESSIONAL CLINICAL COUNSELOR, FOUNDER & CLINICAL DIRECTOR OF LOVE YOUR STORY Christian Counseling Services, in California

Sarah Proemsey

Founder & Clinical Director

We believe that if you put people first you cannot fail.

Our mission is simple yet profound: to create a safe space where you can be yourself, with no judgment, and no shame; to offer hope and healing to individuals, couples, families, churches, schools, and communities - because people matter.

We understand that hurt can happen in relationships, but we also know that healing can happen there too. At Love Your Story, we're like your trusted friend, and a spa day rolled into one (with the occasional psychological workout that's totally worth it). Our team is committed to using evidence-based, well-researched methods to understand and guide personal growth, exploring the inspiring intersection between faith and science.

Our counseling practices are a safe haven for your spiritual, emotional, intellectual, relational, and physical well-being.

But above all, we're here to be models of love, supporting you every step of the way.

Welcome to our safe space; your healing journey begins here.

Frequently asked questions

How long are the sessions and how many do I need?

Sessions are 45 minutes long. The number of sessions is dependent on what your goals are, the severity of what is happening, your budget, and timeframe. We will discuss this together during our first one or two sessions and make a plan you feel comfortable with.

In the beginning, it is recommended to come every week to give yourself a chance to work on your goals. You will know when it’s time to move to less frequent appointments.

Therapy sessions range from $180 – $250 depending on the therapist’s qualifications and experience. While we do not accept insurance, we are able to provide you with a super bill for you to submit to your insurance provider for reimbursement for out-of-network mental health services. To make this process as simple as possible, we have partnered with Mentaya to help our clients save money on therapy. Use this tool below to see if you qualify for reimbursement for my services.

Note: Mentaya’s goal is to save you time and money. It’s completely optional and we do not benefit in any way from your participation.

We require at least 24 hours notice for appointment cancellations. Sessions canceled less than 24 business hours in advance (not including weekends or holidays), and no-shows, are subject to the full fee being charged. To notify us of a cancellation, please notify your therapist directly or email us at hello@loveyourstorytherapy.com. Please note that we do not accept or receive text messages.

Everyone is welcome in our practice regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, or spiritual/religious beliefs. Talking about faith, especially the therapist’s faith, does not enter the therapy room unless a client wants to talk about it. A client will never experience proselytizing, or judgment of values or lifestyle based on their beliefs. Not only would that be bad therapy, but it would be unethical.
