I am a Christian counselor and Licensed Professional Counselor with a Master's degree in Marriage and Family Counseling. I am a published author, motivational speaker and an active researcher. God uses these venues, to assist me in establishing clarity and awareness to help clients navigate their conflict more effectively. I am considered a directive counselor, utilizing a straight forward, "shoot from the hip" approach to penetrate through the superficial and address the core of the relationship issue. Whether the relationship is going through marital difficulty, addiction, adultery, divorce, family of origin issues, or spiritual separation, I provide individuals and couples support and direction to face internal issues in order to get resolution in high crisis situations. God has placed within me a passion to bring hope in the face of hopelessness. Because I believe in strengthening what remains, I work with clients to reveal the strong parts of self that are hidden behind the hurt and discouragement. There are not many life experiences that are more painful to people other than the emotional distress of a suffering relationship.

GOD ALWAYS USES RELATIONSHIPS (SPECIFICALLY WHEN THERE IS A CRISIS) TO CREATE THE CHANGES THAT RESULT IN GROWTH.

Confronting unresolved conflict, lack of emotional connection, loss of love and regard for one another are difficult for people. However, these are the type of issues that force individuals to address rigid interactions that are tearing families, specifically children, apart. A direct therapeutic approach includes two phases of therapy. In the initial phase I work with the client's goals to provide structural therapy in order to place strict boundaries, tools, follow-through and consistency to bring a sense of calm in a chaotic situation. The second therapeutic phase includes revealing the roots of the rigid interactions. This process is strategic, in that, it slows down interactions in order to determine the coping defenses and mechanisms that partners utilize to continue the distress. Although feelings of loss of love may be present, the issues rarely relate to love at all, but coping mechanisms that were unrevealed from the beginning of the clients life that are now manifesting in other relationships. I assist in exploring and identifying these interaction patterns so that healing from the painful experiences can occur as well as discovering new pathways of thinking and interactions.

FINDING HOPE WHEN FEELING HOPELESS.

About Me

Education
I received both my bachelors and masters degrees from Southeastern and I am in the process of completing my counseling PhD. at Liberty University.

Christian
My Christian journey began early, as I received Christ in my life during my childhood. I call it a journey because in maturing as a Christian, my relationship with Christ took many turns. What I have learned as a Christian is that although I may fall short on my end, God remains the same and He is always good. He has strengthened me when I was weak, he has grounded me when I wavered, he has lifted my head in grieving, he has been the lover of my soul when I was lonely, and a joy and peace that has been everlasting and steady. These accolades may sound too good to be true, but I have lived through every one of them and found that the plans He has for me are NOT to harm me but to prosper me and give me hope (Jer. 29:11) As my hunger for him deepened and my pursuit of him strengthened, the most meaningful experiences in my life have come from knowing Him. He is my pleasure….and I am ever grateful.
