Let's Connect (971) 803-3860
I have worked as a counselor for over 25 years and have a wide range of experience with marriage, depression and anxiety issues. I have also developed a sub-specialty in pornography addiction. I take time to integrate Biblical faith with practical guidance for all of my clients desiring to practice their faith in a manner consistent with their actions. I love to work with people who are ready to get to work and discover what emotions, behaviors and thinking keeps them from living the life they desire to live.
I attended seminary in order to get both professionally trained as well as spiritually qualified to guide clients as they seek to make their lives consistent with their faith. My strength is getting to the heart of issues and integrating faith with behavior. My style is to be direct, compassionate and practical.
My therapy dog is trained to comfort clients with anxiety, depression and trauma.
