-What is your personal testimony in becoming a follower of Christ? How has your walk with God shaped or encouraged your career in counseling?
God has always walked by my side and I feel comfort in being in his presence. I have faced many health challenges over the years but always felt the presence of God pouring out his love and guiding me through difficult challenges. When I work with others, I feel his presence working with me. He helps me to say the right words, to have compassion, to be nonjudgmental, and to guide me as I work through the counseling process.
-What areas of counseling do you specialize in? I specialize in mood disorders, anxiety disorders and resolving life and work issues. .Are there any methodologies you have employed which you have seen be effective? Yes, cognitive behavioral therapy, gestalt therapy and meditation and mindfulness.
-What is your personal philosophy on incorporating your faith into your counseling practice? My faith is very comforting to me but I when working with people of faith, I work with what is comforting to them. Some clients prefer to take a spiritual approach while other prefer to take a religious approach. I try not to let my personal faith beliefs influence the counseling process. For example, I do not require that clients have the same level of faith that I have and I do not judge clients that are struggling to hold onto their faith.
What do you believe helps counseling be successful? Being there with the client to help them use prayer, faith and scripture along with counseling techniques to reduce the pain in their lives.
-Do you have a favorite piece of scripture you would like to share?
When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their troubles. The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all. He keeps all his bones; not one of them is broken. (Psalm 34:17-20)
