What leads you to be a counselor?
Simply that I felt called by God to counseling ministry.
What do you like best about it?
There is nothing more rewarding than pointing someone to the only source of healing and then to witness them trust the process of embracing Christ’s changing power.
How do you recharge on your day off?
I play with my boys. I have my own mentor and therapist I consult with as needed. Music helps my mind refocus, as well as spending time in nature. When the beach is available it’s always my first choice on my day off. I use piano ocean waves combo music while stretching and practicing biblical meditation.
What are your three favorite things?
Spending time in the Word, journaling at the beach, seeing people change, and mint ice cream. Oops, that’s four!
