About

Please understand, Biblical counsel is not about religion; it's about relationship. First is my relationship with Christ Jesus and, in counseling, a relationship is formed with you the client. Then, as the Holy Spirit leads and as you participate in the process, healing begins. Whether sorting through a difficult relationship, parenting challenges, breaking an addiction, mental illness, recovering from childhood trauma, or seeking support and encouragement, I am here to help.

My role is a listener and educator, in counseling, offering wisdom from the Scriptures and insight from my own experience. Allowing the Holy Spirit to be our guide in the session, I help you explore, set goals, and bring needed change to your life.

Using a cognitive behavioral / relational style to facilitate emotional behavioral changes, I work to help you meet your counseling goals. I am experienced in abuse and addictions, anxiety, stress related disorders, PTSD, and depression, and have taught classes on parenting, abuse and addiction, recovery life skills, and Suicide Prevention. In addition, Mon, Wed, and Fri, I share biblical counsel via Zoom.us: Mon: Parenting; Wed: Counseling tools; Fri: Recovery life skills @ 9am. You can call or email me for links to connect the live show.

A biblical and licensed mental health counselor, and a registered nurse for over twenty years, I have a Master of Education in Guidance and Counseling (1993) and earned a doctor of religious studies in Biblical counseling (2009).

Why I Became a Professional Christian Therapist

A professed atheist and agnostic at the least, for 35 years, I finally invited God into my life and later accepted Jesus as my Lord. I began counseling individuals and returned to school for my masters. Then went on to complete a doctorate in biblical counseling because I knew the value of the scriptures in my own life. Now, i practice as a biblical and licensed mental health counselor in Vancouver since 1991. I'm also a volunteer with Good Samaritan Counseling Ministries in Vancouver. I write books on biblical counsel and make educational videos as well as have a part-time counseling practice.
