Philosophy of Christian Counseling:

I am extremely comfortable integrating good psychology with Christian beliefs and practices. I pray for my clients at the conclusion of the counseling session and oftentimes at the beginning of the session. I incorporate scripture when appropriate. As a Christian counselor, I believe that we have the power to change ourselves - with God's help and with the support and guidance of a trained, effective Christian counselor.
