My Approach & Values
My hope is to help address the needs of your spirit and soul, emotional needs, and psychological needs through counseling. I want to provide a safe and compassionate space with wisdom and guidance to help bring you towards peace, inner healing, and emotional and spiritual freedom.
The most rewarding and impactful part of my story has been seeing the many people who have become vulnerable and seen positive growth in their story. One of the most precious messages in the Bible is “weep with those who weep.” I have sat with so many people and seen so many tears, remembering that those who sow tears, will reap joy.
I want to help you with your vital relationships with yourself, with others, and with God. Most people come to me with either emotional or spiritual needs, or both. My plan is to meet you where you are, and to help you with the issues that you’re struggling with right now.
