After many years of concentrated prayer, I received an Anointing from Jesus in 2009 for Healing and Teaching. Since then many of my clients and others have received spontaneous healing during our time together. Healing can also happen in more gradual ways, one step at a time, as we release the ways of the past and learn to embrace the higher ways of God. Sometimes, there are important pieces to learn in order to heal. I believe it is my calling to help people realize their own healing abilities through God. I am happy to teach these to my clients during the therapy process or through spiritual coaching.
My aim is to offer a sincere and compassionate setting where hope can be renewed through genuine healing and growth. I utilize an eclectic set of therapeutic approaches as well as the endless resources God provides in His word and through His spirit.
