If you are looking to connect with a therapist that shares in your faith in God to endure life's challenges and pain, I am that therapist. As therapists we don't often share our own struggles and problems so that we can keep the focus on our patients, but I am not a stranger to heartache, disillusionment, sin, relationship struggles, abandonment, fear, loneliness, emptiness, anxiety, depression, and loss of focus in life at times. One of my favorite verses in the Bble is " He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her." - John 8:7 KJV. None of us are perfect, and are far from living without problems. No problem is smaller than another to me and I welcome anyone who wants faith based, Christian oriented therapy to allow me to be God's vessel to help you through your hurts, pains, issues, and life struggles. My favorite things I used to tell myself as I struggled through various issues were, " this too shall pass"... "God never gives us more than we can handle; God must think I am really strong then" lol. For anyone who is hurting and struggling, I pray that you will find your way through your struggles and find greater meaning, purpose, hope, and faith. Peace be with you.

So far, Yumi is just great. She is really well rounded: while she is really professional, knowledgeable, and always seems to know what she’s doing, she is also very down to earth and understanding.
