For many, faith is an important part of life, and it should be no less so in counseling. You deserve to have a safe place where your faith and family values will be honored, and where you can explore your woundings, struggles, and questions in the light of your faith. I personally operate from a Christian worldview and I am happy to incorporate this into our counseling relationship.

As someone who has worked with people in the church and has an understanding of Biblical doctrine, I recognize the value of integrating sessions with scripture. The advantage of choosing a counselor outside of one's church is that a client can feel more comfortable sharing his or her feelings and his or her experience with a counselor whom he or she does not worship. The other side of Christian counseling for me is working with those who are trying to figure out a way to leave the culture of their denomination while still retaining their belief in Christ and His Word. To me, this is some of the most important work with which one can help clients.

As a Christian you want a counselor who will be supportive of your Christian values and provide help based on the biblical principles you value. I first began working as a counselor with two Marriage and Family therapists in a Christian setting. I chose George Fox University’s Master’s program in Marriage and Family Therapy, where I could learn professional counseling, in an environment supportive of Christian values. It is my commitment to establish a safe and comfortable therapy environment which is supportive of marriage and families. Therapy can also be a place to explore lifestyle issues which challenge your faith or hinder your sense of being in a satisfying relationship with God.

As a Christian, I place a high value on the written Word as well as the spirit that it was written in. I am not a theologian and will not pretend to be. I will, however, honor and respect the tenants of Christianity and be very sensitive to your Faith as you see fit. I believe in prayer and respect and honor what that means to you as an individual without judgement.

Our faith and spiritual practices are an essential component of our being. As we progress through life, it is not uncommon to ask questions and consider alternative answers to the belief system that you were provided early on in life. The questioning and seeking is a sign of growth and maturity. My approach to counseling has a foundation in the Christian faith.

Licensed Professional Counselor

I am an experienced counselor who will work with you on spiritual issues if you would like that. I have worked with people of all faiths and beliefs, but as a Christian myself I know that people sometimes want someone who believes as they do. I was on staff at a church as the director of family life and ran a Christian counseling practice there for 7 years. I supervised other counselors at that location and have many years of experience. I can offer biblical counseling as well.

I believe that spiritual beliefs can play an important part in the healing process. I follow the client's lead in bringing spirituality in the room. I am not a pastoral counselor, and do not consider myself a biblical counselor. However, I am Christian, familiar with the Bible, and am comfortable with bringing Christian beliefs into the room if that is what is best for the client.
