God has a beautiful plan for families. His Word provides us with a game plan on how we are to function within the family system. But when the family is not functioning as God intends, serious challenges often arise. KCM offers a comprehensive approach to family counseling with a focus on treating the causes of dysfunction, as opposed to focusing on the symptoms. No matter what might have, or is transpiring in your family, it's not too big of an issue for God to solve. Contact us today to start the process of healing and growth.

While I don't work with children under the age of eighteen years of age,I see families with young adult children,or families with older parents who are struggling with difficulties. There may be grudges, betrayals, misunderstandings among family members. There may be a history of abuse or dysfunction. I work to help the generations bridge the gaps between them, to communicate more effectively, and to understand their different perspectives. There may be anger, disappointment, even a sense of betrayal but I work to help families really listen to each other, and to express their feelings without attacking or blaming. My goal is to help families reach some understanding and peace among all.
