It is my mission as a Christian Counselor to ensure that every client receives professional psychotherapy within a Christ-centered framework, integrating Christian principles. My therapuetic approach is anchored in the Christian worldview that the Bible provides us with the foundation and truths to help us thrive in daily living. I believe that God wants to restore every part of our lives including our relationships. My desire and privilege is to help people come to know the life that God intended for us all.

One of the advantages of a therapeutic relationship is the confidentiality and trust that exists between the counselor and the client. Information shared during sessions will not be shared with others without your written consent (or parental consent for a minor). Mandatory reporting is required for the following situations: abuse of a child/family member, intent to harm yourself, or intent to harm someone else. The occurrence of any of these, past or present, will not keep our counselor from working with you.
