I am a Christian myself and value utilizing a Biblical approach in my counseling practice as a Licensed Professional Counselor. While I won't impose my own values on you, I will utilize scripture and prayer during our sessions as much as you are comfortable. I will draw on our faith and rely on the Biblical word to provide a framework for us to look at your circumstances and find ways in which to move forward so that you have the opportunity to live a life that is pleasing to God. There is a certain comfort that comes with being congruent to who you are and to be able to rely on your faith in the counseling process. God is the mighty healer and all things are possible through Him.
