Philosophy of Counseling:

My philosophy of counseling is guided by the following values;
  • Each human being is a child of a loving and compassionate God.
  • We are all on a journey through life with its bumps and bruises and its wonderful moments;
  • We are each in covenant relationships with each other. Each of us is expected to reach out to one another. Our pursuit of relationships with each other is achieved in the spirit of love, mutual respect and support.
  • The varieties of life experiences are opportunities to join with each other in our individual journeys.  Difficult experiences in life are moments we can join others for comfort and wisdom.

I believe that counseling helps us to focus on the critical areas of our lives.  As a counselor it is my honor and privilege to work with others in their journey through those difficult experiences.  Our time together is both confidential and a sacred space.  Together we can make the counseling experience a process that is sacred, instructive for both of us and of educational benefit.  Our time together is both instructive and educational.
