What drives us? What completes us? Where do we get stuck in life, in relationships? How can we become the sort of person we long to be? What matters most to us and why can’t we get to that place of fulfillment? For as long as I can remember, I have been fascinated by questions like this. I believe this interest was planted in me by my Creator; Who used it to lead me into my calling as a Christian counselor.
After graduating from the University of Mississippi, I worked with college students through the ministry of Campus Crusade for Christ (now known as Cru). After several years, I realized my need for additional training to help people deal with very real and deep life issues. This desire led me to Reformed Theological Seminary to study Marriage and Family therapy.
Central to this training was having to face the uncomfortable work of examining myself—my own baggage, needs, unhealthy patterns and failures. I’m very grateful for the beginning of that life-long process. It has given me insight and compassion for the trials, hurts and tragedies of those with whom I now work.
