"Some days are good, while others are something to be reckoned with. On the reckoning days, typical daily activity can seem overwhelming and sometimes the anxiety, stress, or sadness can feel painful, both physically and emotionally. Even taking a deep breath during these times can be a struggle. And, to add to the overwhelm, you've been looking at these profiles hoping that one would jump out and spell out the answer to the million dollar question…what comes next? The struggle is real, and the vulnerability that comes with looking for answers can be equally overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be. Because you're not alone."

"Michael knows first-hand the trials of life-when he was just two years old, his father died suddenly leaving him, his mother and seven older siblings in a state of shock and horror. As a means of coping, Michael's mother turned to alcohol, and for fifteen years she attempted to drown her sorrows. But God is so much bigger than our circumstances! For more than two and a half decades, through Christ, Michael has lived life as an over-comer to the crippling effects of sin and guilt."

"**Saturday appointments available ** It takes so much courage to ask for help. In my twenty plus years as a therapist I have been humbled time and again as clients make that call and come in for sessions. People come in to talk about some of the most difficult things, from childhood abuse to a struggling marriage. It has been a privilege to be of service to so many people. I often get asked how I can listen to peoples stories of hurt and pain and I answer that it is difficult but so hopeful. That is because people don’t have to stay in that place of emotional, psychological, spiritual, or relational pain."
