If you are looking at this website, chances are either you or someone you love is hurting. My life’s passion is helping people grow through their emotional pain and find solutions for life’s problems. I enjoy working with people of all ages and backgrounds. Problems and difficulties are part of life. No one is exempt. There is no shame in asking for help and I’d like to partner with you as you seek solutions that will work for you.
Married 34 yrs with 5 children, I have experienced marital conflict, cancer with a child and with a spouse, substance abuse, co-dependency, anger, LD, giftedness, etc. With nearly 20 years of clinical experience, I work with people who have problems with depression, child abuse, sexual abuse, substance abuse, divorce, loss, mood disorders, childhood illnesses, personality disorders etc. The combination of life and clinical experiences form the basis of my ability to provide empathetic, compassionate care.
My Christian faith has informed my clinical practice. My view of the counseling process is that it is actually part of God’s plan for sanctification and growth. Through grace, truth and time in the therapeutic relationship real change occurs. There is always hope.
