Each time you come to my office, I count it a privilege to meet with you. I admire the fact that you are courageous enough to ask for help, to seek change, and to pursue growth in your life. I believe there is always purpose and meaning to be found in life’s struggles, and those struggles make us more qualified, better equipped, and increase our ability for demonstrating God’s power in our lives. Together we will discuss the ways in which you can move forward toward the life God desires for you to live through Him.

My Goal as a Christian Counselor

I believe that many people are living from a perspective of a mistaken identity – thinking of themselves as one who is not worthy, not forgiven, and not chosen by God, who loves them unconditionally and unreservedly. My goal is to empower each of my clients to recognize and embrace their divine purpose as one created in the image of an almighty God, and to find healing from wounds that are the result of us living in an imperfect and fallen world.

What I Offer in Christian Counseling

Clients can expect to sit across from someone real and relatable. Our sessions may include tears, laughter, or very direct “Come to Jesus” truths when needed. Clients may expect to receive regular at-home assignments from me, in an effort to encourage their growth, confidence, and to retrain their brain to work for them instead of against them. I will invite Scripture and prayer into our sessions if the client so desires.

My Approach to Christian Counseling

I believe (and have seen) that approaches to counseling are most effective when integrated with an invitation to the Holy Spirit for guidance, wisdom, and wholehearted healing. By having access to and reliance upon the One who is the Great Physician, the Wonderful Counselor, the One who is familiar with many sorrows, temptations, letdowns, rejection, and near to the brokenhearted, we have access to authentic spiritual healing. I will approach each session with curiosity and a passion for this calling.
