Hello! I’m Rod

Licensed Professional Counselor

As a Christian Counselor, Rod believes God’s desire is for us to have greater intimacy with Him and others He has blessed us with in this life’s journey. He feels it is a privilege to come along side clients in the midst of their challenges to assist them in growing in these areas. Rod chose to earn a Master in Marriage and Family Ministry at Talbot Theological Seminary to become better equipped in the Word prior to receiving my LPC license in 1998. He worked for several years as a therapist in private practice before embarking on a twenty- year professional career as an Employee Assistance Counselor and a Human Resource Management Consultant with a large government organization. In 2019, Rod took early retirement so he could return to his true passion of once again helping individuals and couples work through life’s stressors and challenges that greatly impact one’s overall wellbeing. He focuses primarily on adults, using a number of therapeutic strategies to help you not only gain insight into your issues but more importantly develop practical tools so you can better manage and resolve the challenges you are currently facing.

My Approach & Values

Are you in search of a more balanced, hopeful, and peaceful life? I understand how the challenges and twists of life can lead to anxiety, unrest, and a lack of peace. I help people build their relationships and guide people dealing with unhealthy anger, anxiety, and depression. You can experience peace, direction, hope, and joy in your relationships and personal life! I will use the wisdom and empathy of Christian methods if requested and I focus primarily on counseling using a number of therapeutic strategies to help you develop practical tools so you can better manage and resolve the challenges you are currently facing.

I am a professional who offers unmatched commitment to my clients leading them to resolve their concerns and make meaningful decisions. Together we will work on strategies that allow you to address the root cause of your difficulties and build meaningful social connections.

As a Christian Counselor, I believe God’s desire is for us to have greater intimacy with Him and others He has blessed us with in this life’s journey.

Truly Life Changing experience! This ministry has unbelievable power and compassion. God is really working in the hearts of staff and couples. My life has personally been changed by this weekend. I have gone from the edge of divorce to my wife telling me that she is proud to have me as a husband. Thank you so much for a wonderful blessing to my family.

It is my prayer that this ministry will thrive, and I know that the lives of many will be transformed. May his grace, powers and love be with this ministry.
