As a pastor and counselor, I am informal, adaptable, and relational. People tell me I am a good listener, give wise counsel, and tune in to the Holy Spirit. One of my goals is to be fully present with people. I enjoy watching God transform people over a period of time. Whether you’re looking for marriage counseling, family counseling, individual counseling, or life coaching, I would be honored to walk alongside you as you identify areas of growth and learn to implement positive, God-honoring changes in your life to achieve the results you desire.
My Goal as a Christian Counselor
My goal as a Christian counselor is to see people thrive and to find their life purpose in Christ. My ultimate desire is for every person to have an intimate relationship with God in which the Holy Spirit is activated in their lives and they see the Lord as a good, good Father. “The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, ‘Abba, Father’” (Romans 8:15).
What I Offer in Christian Counseling
I offer a safe, judgment-free space where you can release your burdens to the Lord and begin the process of overcoming the challenges you face. I will patiently sit with you through your season of struggle as we look to God together for restoration and hope.
I also like to pray with clients who are open to it. I find prayer to be a very effective intervention. As Dallas Willard says, “Prayer is talking with God about what we are doing together.”
My Approach to Christian Counseling
My faith is inseparable from my counseling. I trust Jesus to be present in every session, and believe He is working in and through me and my clients. Jesus can hold both our hope and our pain. Therefore, we can give Him the things weighing us down. “Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you” (1 Peter 5:7). Through our sessions, I hope to remind you that Jesus wants to take your burden and make it light. He says, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light” (Matthew 11:28-30).
