Why I Became a Professional Christian Therapist

I enjoy learning about individuals and their stories. When you come meet with me, it will be like you are having coffee with a good friend, who is listens, engages, and empathizes with you over your struggles. We may laugh & cry together. Talking with me is like communicating with a real person, not just someone who reflects your emotion or thought.

I know it is hard to find a good Christian counselor. So I try to understand where you are at with your faith story (even if it's non-existent), bringing prayer and Scripture when needed, but also a non-judging perspective to help guide you along the way. This is not a bible study or accountability session, but a time of bringing your struggles to light & ultimately to the foot of the Cross.
