I have provided Christian/Biblical counseling for my clients my entire career. The spiritual aspect of humans cannot be omitted. A person's belief in God, in Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Spirit is paramount to complete healing from all issues. I provide an integration of psychology sifted through biblical principles, the Bible being the final authority. I am well-versed in my knowledge of the Bible with decades of study, experience, ministry & commitment to Jesus.

As joint heirs, therapist and client have a spiritual connection that enhances our ability to meet your goals.
