Questions about your Therapy Practice

What do you value about being a therapist?

I value and honor the people that I get to sit with. It takes great courage to share your story with someone and being able to listen and help people gain more self and know their story is extremely humbling to me.

What do you think is important for a client to look for in a therapist?

I think it’s important that the client can trust and connect with their therapist. Also, you need a therapist that will confront the things that they see need to change.

How does your faith play itself out in your work as a therapist?

I believe that God created us to live from our hearts and I want to help people live the way that they were created to live.
