About Me

Hello. I am a licensed Social Worker with many years of experience. I have worked in many settings (clinics, hospitals, hospice, teaching, etc), and functioned in many capacities. I worked at Samaritan Counseling Center for a time, (a nationwide group of counseling centers which does faith based counseling along with regular counseling. I use many tools and skills, and have worked with many kinds and ages of people.
My Christian counseling is based on the importance of a personal relationship with God/Jesus. I am not strong in knowledge of specific bible passages, rather relying on the teachings of Jesus, and his parables. I emphasize using those principles and teachings in everyday life. . LIving the Jesus taught life will bring the fruits of the spirit into your life, and will allow you to broadcast the fruits of the spirit to others. I focus on how to use your Christianity in your own life - listening to God, using Jesus as savior and role model, and living a life as he taught.
