You are courageous in reaching out for counseling. Counseling is a healing/growth/and development process you undertake for yourself. I'm grateful to journey with you. I believe every person holds worth, dignity, and value as someone created by God. There is no one like you! You are special! While you may not believe that, it is important that you know my approach toward you - that is how I view you.
I have been a licensed clinical professional counselor for nearly 30 years and a Doctor of Formational Counseling - explicitly Christian counseling - for over 10 years. I serve individuals and families who are seeking counseling from a Christian perspective as well as individuals who are seeking traditional counseling. I have over 30 years of experience in serving children, families, and individuals in various capacities and settings; both urban, rural, and internationally.
I look forward to connecting with you on this part of your journey through life.
