About me

I am a Christian and by God's grace I was ordained in 1992. I have dedicated my life to learning and serving the Church, by that I mean the people who make up the body of believers that are called the church or the ecclesia.
I have a deep commitment to Christ and his Kingdom, I attempt to bring hope and healing to individuals and to marriages. Marriage is God’s design and plan but we mess it up. I seek restoration of marriages and that motivates me.

I am deeply committed to Christ and Biblical truth. I have served much of my adult life as a Pastor for Baptist Churches. I love the personal freedom and responsibility that congregational churches provide and where God has called me to serve.

I include scripture in my counseling, I pray for my clients, I don’t claim to have all the answers but I do point the way to God for his intervention in our lives. I encouraged living a Godly life.

I would see my self as more guiding and encouraging. I can be directive when Scripture is clear but with emotional work it is usually better for each of us to discover what Gods will is for us so I try to guide us to ask the right questions, not always have the right answers.

I don’t like divorce but the scripture does say “I permit divorce because of the hardness of their hearts” I don’t believe divorce is what God intended but He also shows us grace an mercy in many ways. I press for reconciliation but if this is not possible then I try to be supportive and help with the process.

I have a heart for working with adults and with couples. I work with depression, anxiety, trauma, NPD and other personality issues.

I have been working for over 4 years with couples dealing with Narcissism issues. I have also worked in a Maximum security prison where I encounter many personality issues and have made training presentations on dealing with personality issues.

There is healing in recognizing what drives us from the past. I use Lifespan integration to help clients reconnect memories to help them reprocess the implicit memories that drive behaviors. Understanding where we have come from is a positive way to move beyond these self destructive behaviors.

David is balanced, fair, considerate and wise. He has guided my wife and I back into each other's light and helped us become whole again. Thank you David!
