For individuals: I firmly believe that within each of us, lies the answers to the questions we ask. Utilizing a Biblical perspective, I will partner with you to discover the person you see yourself becoming. You will be met with compassion and understanding, as we begin the rebuilding process. For couples: After 18 years of being married, I respect how difficult it may seem to talk things through; however, the possibility of walking away with healing in your marriage is well within your reach. With a Christian and hope-focused approach, you & your spouse can begin Living Anew.

It can be difficult to find a counselor who has both a Biblical perspective and family therapy training. While the Bible is the authoritative guide for our lives, we are also designed to be in relationship with others in order to help each other live life fully. Unfortunately many people struggle to find supportive Christian friendships in such a transient city. I firmly believe that God called me into the field of family therapy to help people learn how to love God and love others on a daily basis (not just on Sunday mornings), to help people connect with a community, and to help people heal from spiritual wounds and anger toward God.

Like most counselors, I recognize personal problems can come about because of physiology, social-environmental influences, and psychological pressures. As a Christian counselor, I am not limited to psychological techniques or to my own human efforts and wisdom. I believe God is the real authority in counseling and He gives us the resources to change. I believe that counseling without Our Creator is operating in vanity and ineffective. My counseling goal is to advocate forgiveness from the past, strength and comfort for the present, and hope for the future. I am sensitive to the many dilemmas we face, and I am trained to identify and assist in navigating through the process of healing.

Faith and spirituality can provide comfort and meaning to those guided by their beliefs. I was raised in a Christian household myself so I have an appreciation for the values instilled by religion, the importance of tradition, and the strength of community. My approach to counseling is humanistic and welcoming of all spiritualities. Though I do not incorporate any specific pastoral counsel, I encourage my spiritual clients to draw on their beliefs during the counseling process.
