Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor #LPCC-5073

I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor offering Christ-centered therapy to adults, couples, children, teens, and families. Whether you’re dealing with relationship challenges with your spouse or child, depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, or other concerns, Christian counseling can help. As an individual made in the image of God, you have a significant purpose and calling – yet it’s so easy for the troubles and cares of this world to blur our vision. It would be my honor to journey with you as you discover the hope and joy found in living for Christ.

San Diego – Sun, Mon, Tue, Wed and Fri
Online Counseling

I count it a great privilege work with children, teens, individuals, couples, and families by offering a variety of treatment methods including play therapy for children, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Attachment Based Therapy, and Trauma Informed Care, depending on your situation and needs. My desire is for you to take positive steps forward in your personal life and in your walk with the Lord as you seek to learn new tools and techniques to overcome the difficulties you face. Together we will work to establish and implement a plan for your growth based on the goals you share with me in session.

My Goal as a Christian Counselor

My goal as a counselor is to help others move out of whatever is keeping them “stuck.” Many times, we need a third party to help us see things in a different light and process different events. I want others to live a happy and healthy life for Jesus, to know they have a purpose on this earth, and to find their calling in this world.

What I Offer in Christian Counseling

I offer a warm, inviting space where you can feel at ease. With empathy and sincere care, I will meet you where you are and listen to your concerns to determine the best treatment method for your situation. I provide a non-judgmental atmosphere centered in godly principles where you will find guidance to overcome the challenges you face and hope for the future.

My Approach to Christian Counseling

My Christian faith is at the center of who I am as an individual. It provides me with a lens through which I see the world and others around me. Christian counseling allows individuals to share their opinions, feelings, and circumstances with someone who is like minded. It’s easy to get lost in the chaos of this world that has forsaken many Christian principles. By meeting with a Christian counselor, clients can enjoy the benefits of receiving guidance and direction from someone who puts God at the center of their life.
