I am an ordained minister and a mental health counselor. In my counseling practice, I combine my Christian faith with my knowledge of mental therapy to provide you with counseling or therapy that involves faith in the practical work of resolving the personal issues that we all face.
You may be concerned about a personal issue, or a traumatic event in your life, you might be struggling with addiction or questions of faith… working with me, you will find a gentle, supportive atmosphere of genuine guidance. Together, using the insights of our modern human understanding and our faith in God, we can walk the healing path. Don’t allow another day of suffering to pass without help, call me at: 509-466-6632
Prompted by my desire to minister and counsel people of faith who find themselves in difficult situations, I earned a doctorate in ministry and my certification as a Mental Health Counselor. I have my license in Washington for counseling and I am a National Board Certified Counselor.
I serve locally in the Presbyterian Church in my capacity as an ordained minister and as an adjunct Professor of Counseling at Whitworth College.
