About

I am a North Carolina Licensed Professional Counselor (#2165) and a Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor (#S2165), and have been practicing counseling for 29 years in the NC Triad Area. Also, I have served in the ordained ministry since 1984. I work with many different types of people from varied cultural and economic backgrounds, and strongly emphasize the wisdom of the historic Christian Church as found in the Holy Scriptures and historic the lives of spiritual giants in Christianity. As Paul (2 Tim. 2:16-17) writes to Timothy saying that all scripture is "God-breathed" (literal Greek translation) giving the wisdom that we maybe instructed in righteous and wholesome (righteous and holy) living (paraphrase). James (1:2-12; 3:13-18) also writes that when we "fall into diverse and manifold trials," that we by finding our unity with God in prayer and living that we will receive the wisdom from God which guides us through trials (paraphrase). Hence, if you are having marital trials, economic trials, change of life trials, emotional and psychological trials, vocational trials, school trials, and other personal and relational trials the key to those is realizing the way of reconciliation, a strong biblical concept from the Apostle Paul (2 Corinthians 5:11-21) which provides the wisdom and guidance needed for keen decision-making and effectively coping with these trials. My emphasis is upon the male gender, ages 16 through senior years, but am also open to working with the female gender as well. Currently, my clientele of men and women are ages 30 and older. So far, I have written and published 5 books on counseling, all of which deal with the way of reconciliation and the spiritual and creative power of the human personality to grow and mature toward the likeness of Christ who is the completion of the image of God in each of us (see Amazon.com browser).

My approach to counseling is a spiritual, open-ended approach that values your life story. Your story has within it the healing power of your pain, suffering, sorrow, and conflicts. Together we learn the manner by which your particular trial or trials may be molded to give power and development to your life's story which ultimately shapes your legacy. You are encouraged not to look upon your apparent defeats as failures, but as stepping stones to maturity, growth, and the wisdom of a life of wholeness and wellbeing both spiritually and physically.

Why I Became a Professional Christian Therapist

Frankly, through my years of counseling, teaching, and ministry, I have grown to consider myself as a counselor of Christian spirituality. That is, my success with therapy and education has resulted from applying biblical principles to living and helping others to live. There are many counseling methods that are scientific and evidence based and I do apply these as needed, but biblical methods and approaches to living have given effective and positive results through the history of men and women as well as to my own clients. These principles belong to the wisdom of God from heaven as James speaks of in his Letter and Paul speaks of in his First Letter to the Corinthians. In fact, these principles work in any person's life who is willing to learn of them.
