I believe that our greatest triumphs in life often come from turning our weaknesses into strengths. Sometimes our experiences can be very difficult, but with hope and perseverance I believe we can overcome these difficulties and become better because of them. I can honestly say that my own experiences have helped define the person I am and have given me the ability to relate to others in a more empathetic and non-judgmental way. I am convinced that we all have something to teach, and something to learn from each other. I love working with others and walking alongside them through the healing process. I also enjoy learning and growing from my clients knowledge and experiences.

I personally have a strong Christian faith, and have seen the healing power of prayer through the Lord Jesus. I also believe that each of us have been given the freedom to choose our own beliefs and way of life. Having worked with people from different cultures and spiritual paths, I know that Christian therapy may not be desired by everyone. I believe that faith is a personal choice and that no one should be pressured or coerced. I want each individual that I work with to feel comfortable choosing whether or not faith is a part of his or her therapy.
