Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Everyone has a unique pathway to follow in the journey we call life. As we travel this journey we may encounter many challenges and difficulties. As a Christian therapist, I use a combination of clinical expertise and spiritual values to bring healing to the broken heart, unity to divided couples and families, direction to the confused mind, peace to the anxious heart, strength to the weak, and stability in chaos. Using love, compassion, and guidance, I endeavor to help each person function successfully and become the unique person they were designed to be.
