Understanding the whole person is of utmost importance to me. I am empowered to help people deal with and find relief for life's hurts. I help find the unique solutions to encourage health, happiness and well-being. I do this through a deep sense of understanding, compassion and personal experience.
Over the past twenty years as a professional educator, pastor, businessman, coach and counselor, I have helped many people in their pursuit of healing and wholeness. These diverse experiences have not only provided me with a greater understanding of people's needs, but they also have helped me develop solid solutions for professional treatment. My real life experiences have helped me in relating to others on a personal level.
Education continues to drive my professional expertise. I am committed to be clinically excellent and culturally relevant to the people I serve. Understanding the uniqueness of an individual's life and how it relates to life's challenges is my constant focus.
