Background

I have been married for 12+ years and we have one child. I have 22+ years of volunteer experience in Christian ministry geared toward children, teens, young adult women, and young married couples with or without children.  I have 10+ years of work experience in the social services field working with clients ranging from ex-offender reintegrating back into society to individuals dealing with life-long chronic medical illnesses.  I lean towards an integrated approach in counseling gleaning from both the psychological and Christian perspective.

Passions

I have a heart to see individuals and couples experience the love and fullness of Christ in an authentic and practical way.  My passion is to see each of us being functional and purposeful members of society, overcoming individual, societal, and cultural pressures and unrealistic expectations. (Ephesians 3:17-20).
