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.

The ability to integrate psychology and Christianity is such a special gift which allows us to offer my clients something the world is longing for: HOPE. This hope reminds us that we are carefully crafted, beautifully wonderful human beings that are loved unconditionally by God and have been created for a divine purpose. In Christian counseling, you can use this hope to restore balance in your life by aligning your values with the Bible thus becoming whole, healthy and free in Christ. As an active followers of Christ, it is an honor to offer a safe, compassionate environment where together we can explore life's challenges through the truth of the Word of God and prayer.

I am a lifelong Christian and being a counselor is how I see myself living out Jesus' call for me to be in the world. I help my clients to find God's grace and peace at work in their lives. The parables that Jesus taught are powerful inspirations for deep reflection and application to clients' lives. The Psalms convey God's love, compassion and commitment to His people. Faith and spirituality are tremendous supports in people's lives and knowing that we have a loving God enables us to deal with great challenges in life.

I am a follower of Jesus and believe that all of my clients, regardless of religious background are made in the image of God and thus have inherit beauty and worth. Religion can bring hope and it can also cause immense amounts of pain. I am passionate about helping clients engage with God, and work through pain. I believe that God is honored to be a part of this process and that the work done in counseling is a holy and sacred thing that produces hope and healing.

I believe that when a client is able to incorporate his or her faith into the counseling process, the growth and healing that can occur is limitless. As a fellow believer, there is a unique level of connectedness I experience with my clients who share these beliefs. While it is clear that healing can and does occur in secular settings, the depth of support and understanding that takes place in a Christian environment allows for a more holistic therapeutic relationship.

You can trust that God knows you personally because He designed you exactly as you are! All healing and permanent change comes through Him. When you "confess your sins (brokenness, distress, mistakes) to each other and pray for each other you will be healed" James 5:16. As a pastoral counselor, I am uniquely qualified to walk this path with you. Religion is not the answer, only God is.
