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.

Christian counseling is unique in that it provides psychological principles and modalities within the context of a Biblical foundation. Psychotherapy treatment is implemented in alignment with scriptural truth. Believing that all truth is designed and created by God, the understanding of the human mind and how it functions is based on truth. In working with individuals and families, a sound understanding of the Word of God is pertinent to identifying the problematic issues and providing the help that will equip them toward a journey of wholeness.

Isaiah proclaimed and reminds us: "I have loved you with an everlasting love." Faith based counseling underscores the reality that fully alive people discover meaning in their lives and suggests a specific mission which is defined by one's relationship with Jesus Christ. This truth of God is based on the reality that God loves unconditionally. As we journey through life, with all its complexities, we can lose sight of God's love and gifts to us. Our Christian counselors can help you regain that vision and a healthy direction for your behaviors and lifestyle.

Using a faith-based perspective allows for optimum coping with life's ups and downs. Many clients have benefited from a biblical understanding when addressing problems such as grief and loss, marital discord, life transition, and family conflict. I use my Seminary education to guide conversations as we, together, seek God's will in times of uncertainty. My hope is that we can discover where God is leading you and how to trust in God's faithfulness.

As a Christian, I believe it is impossible to fully understand human beings without understanding the Creator in whose image they are made. God has revealed so much about himself, about the way humans were created to operate, about effective and loving relationships between individuals and in the family. Among the riches of the Bible are its instruction in healthy, happy, godly living. In addition, we have the promise of the Holy Spirit actually working within us, providing great hope for transformation. Although some secular psychology has been antithetical to Christian beliefs, I use sound counseling techniques to resolve emotional and relational distress in a clearly Biblical way.

We all struggle. Christian counseling endeavors to honor the way God uses struggle to grow our dependence on him. My hope is that clients will benefit from my desire to see authentic healing in the deepest places: to see broken responses, ways of thinking and relating, self-protective patterns, etc. restored and hearts refreshed in their commitment to God as the true source of our well-being. With a degree in Christian counseling from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, I make a conscious effort to integrate the insights of rigorous psychological science with the timeless truths of the Bible and basic tenets of Christian theology.
