One Sentence Treatment Philosophy

I believe grace and truth are healing elements, combined with an empathic stance and a focus on building skills.

Personal Statement of Faith

I was raised in a Christian home. I truly experienced the unconditional love of Jesus at age 10 when I was a camper at Kanakuk Kamps in southern Missouri. At that time I gave my life to Christ. I believe in the Holy Trinity, that Jesus blood was required as a sacrifice of the only sinless God-man to walk the Earth. Without accepting the atoning gift of Jesus, man cannot be saved.
