Caring for the Whole Person

We are all designed uniquely and live uniquely.  Every person that I encounter is shaped by the interwoven threads of mind, body and spirit as well as relationships, work, education, culture, community, and history. As such, I seek to care for the whole person through services that take into account this full range of formative influences. Caring for the whole person also means that I partner with my clients to address unwanted or problematic behaviors while gradually moving deeper to explore root issues that might be hampering growth. I approach counseling from an integrative perspective that expresses biblical truth alongside evidence-based theory and practice. Though I operate from a Christian foundation, I welcome clients from all faith backgrounds, including those with no religious affiliation at all, and I intentionally engage with each person according to their expressed preferences and interests.

In the ancient Hebrew text of the prophecy of Isaiah, he speaks of the renewing, restoring and rebuilding of people in Isaiah chapter 61: "to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion, to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor." My passion is to partner with you in order for restoration to occur in places that have been devastated by brokenness.
