Licensed Professional Counselor, MA, LPC


Focus on the Family's Christian Counselors Network

I work with clients who have varying worldviews, although I typically work with people seeking counsel from a Christian perspective. My worldview reflects a Christian belief system that is grounded in God's written Word, the Bible. An overarching objective in my work with clients is to encourage their personal growth and help them relate with integrity in their relationships -- with friends, spouse, family, neighbors, co-workers. Whatever the client's perspective, my goal is to provide sound clinical expertise with care and respect for each client as we collaborate for their health and well-being. Areas of focus and attention include (but are not limited to): Anxiety and Depression Stage of Life Issues Pre-Marriage and Marriage Relationships Family and Social Relationships Personality and Communication Issues Boundary and Conflict Management Sexuality Career and Workplace Concerns Grief/Loss Eating Disorders and Weight Management Substance Abuse

I view counseling as a collaborative process ... a partnership. The client has identified the need for help and has courageously taken the first step of setting up and keeping that first appointment. My job is to provide a safe, confidential relationship in which they can explore their concerns and hopes, and to help them grow and relate with integrity in their relationships. It's an amazing relationship, really -- while I am in the designated helping role, I am learning constantly from the insights and courage of my clients.
