Christian Counseling Origin
While in grad school, I became frustrated with the secular attempts to understand the dynamics of an interpersonal problem without offering any real solutions. I had recently dedicated my life to Christ and watched His transforming power change lives. As a result, my desire was to incorporate the spiritual component in order to help set people free from self-destructive patterns preventing them from living rich lives.
I assist clients in identifying the negative core beliefs about themselves that keep them stuck and allow God to change those beliefs to reflect His truth. Jesus offers hope to the hopeless and the power to change. I have a heart for individuals who are angry at God, feeling disenfranchised from the church, or afraid the roof will fall in if they attend. One of my passions is helping people learn the truth of God's grace and forgiveness for their lives. I have attended Oak Pointe Church in Novi, Michigan, for 15 years and facilitated many groups through their Restore Ministries.
