Why I Became a Pastoral Therapist

I understand the struggles many Christians have. We’ve found faith, a spiritual home, but there are parts of our lives that don’t fit with our spiritual inspirations or commitments! I bring an understanding of your passion for God as well as of the difficulties of our real, everyday lives, and will help you as you work this through, in a caring, supportive and nonjudgmental relationship.
