My Approach to Helping
As a pastor with thirty years of ministry in the church, I have been with people in their darkest moments and journeyed with them into healing. These experiences have been enhanced with further training in the areas of couple and relational counseling. It is always been my honor and privilege to serve those who God puts in my life, and I look forward to hearing from you.
Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist
Choosing a therapist is like trying on a pair of shoes, there needs to be a good fit. That is why I offer a free fifteen minute consultation. I want us to feel comfortable with our relationship, and for us to decide if I have the strengths that you are seeking. If it turns out that is not the case, I have many trusted contacts in the field and I am glad to point you in the right direction.

Life is difficult. My struggles are not exactly yours, but all of us eventually hit a tough spot. I learned that in sharing my story with, life becomes less difficult. The burden is eased, I can see more clearly, and the path ahead is defined. My struggles have made me a better therapist because "I have been there."
