I believe that people can achieve real, lasting change in their lives and that we are all made in the image of God. Because of that, I understand that brokenness and sin are not the truest part of any human being. I enjoy celebrating with my clients as they begin see their own value more clearly. It is a privilege to watch my clients become more and more released into the person they were created to be.
I see counseling as a committed and dynamic process. I believe it takes courage to actively engage in therapy and I tailor each session to fit the needs of my clients. I value the opportunity to see the beauty in people while they share their pain and difficulties. I consider it a gift to watch my clients experience the freedom that grace brings.
