Licensed Clinical Social Worker
While I enjoy working with clients from all walks of life, I most enjoy clients who would like to grow as a person spiritually, mentally, emotionally and inter-personally.
I view my role as a collaborator with the Holy Spirit Who resides in the client, while I come alongside the person to see, hear, understand, accept and love her/him with God’s Agape love. Together, we will grow into what God has made the person to be – an unique reflection of God Himself.
