Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you will abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." -Romans 15:13
Within my role as the director of Cornerstone Lifeworks, I am also one of the practicing licensed professional clinical counselors (LPCC) of our dynamic team of specialists. I work with clients of all ages and faiths through providing individual, child, family, and couples therapy. I enjoy meeting with clients to identify their needs and concerns through a client centered and solution focused approach. This is driven by an understanding, strength, and trust in Love - helping each client to discover it, receive it and “put it on” for themselves. I believe a primary means of change lies in first developing a strong therapeutic client relationship. This enables us to work together in considering how multiple factors including relationships, history, overall health, and one’s spiritual walk are impacting their daily life and situations. I desire to work with clients in the discovery of their personal strengths and empowering qualities, further establishing their ability to overcome and to fully take their “response- ability” within their presenting concerns. We are not alone in our challenges nor do we need to carry any burden by ourselves.
Through this client led and person-centered approach, I join my clinical knowledge with Biblical Truth as it pertains to a growth mindset throughout the course of therapy. This can help to disempower any false beliefs that are resulting in negative thoughts that lead to the destructive behaviors holding a client back from where they desire to be. As a Christian, I believe God partners with us to bring experiential hope and meaning to our difficulties and sufferings in this life. A felt love and empowerment is available to each of us in our need(s): spiritual, emotional and physical... the “whole” of us! There is a “Kinsman Redeemer” of our past, Who invites us into a present and living relationship with Him in Jesus through the Holy Spirit. In this dynamic relationship, we can boldly face tomorrow because He lives and desires His empowering Spirit to be ever-present with(in) us.
“He suffered and endured every test and temptation, so that He can help us every time we pass through the ordeals of life.” - Hebrews 2:18
