I consider my role as a counselor to be a divine calling. I strive to combine my understanding ofclinical counseling theory and God’s Word to help the clients I serve reach wholeness in the vital areas of life which include emotional, spiritual and relational health. It is my sincere belief that God intends good for us all and when we align ourselves with his redeeming purposes we can achieve true contentment in life. “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
