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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
