If you need someone who listens, who is understanding - someone who has depth of experience and is strong in the Lord - I'd like to meet with you. If you need a safe and private place where you can share important things with a caring professional who wants to help you survive, grow, and thrive, I'd like to provide that.
I meet with adult couples, individuals, and Christian leaders in person or online. These are men and women who have invited me to walk with them in life. I consider the opportunity to develop such relationships to be central to my call as a Christian counselor.
Education and Skills
I hold a Bachelors in Theology and Masters in Pastoral Counseling (MPC) and have many years experience as a counseling professional I also serve as the Vice President of Flourishing Leaders, a ministry dedicated to the well-being of pastors and other Christian leaders. As such, I employ my background and experience as a pastor and professional counselor to help fellow Christian leaders thrive, serve with integrity, and finish well.
Retreat Speaker, Conference Speaker, and Author
I regularly enjoy leading retreats and teaching at conferences for couples, Christian leaders, men, and other specific groups. My specialty topics include Thriving Through Transitions, Understanding the Will of God, and The Three Kinds of Forgiveness.
I am the author of several books, including How Healed Do You Want to Be? and a collection of essays titled Gracelets: Thoughts, Reflections, and Teaching on Spiritual and Personal Growth.
