Although I've been married for nearly three decades, we have been told by others that we act like we're newlyweds. We've had the blessing of raising three children showering them all with love, however during challenging periods of their lives, we've always trusted that God would guide us through the tough times. Learning to be a loving wife and raising ourchildren has been a lifelong commitment focusing on instilling values, morals, and the importance of respect to others. The secret to a successful relationship with your spouse is COMMITMENT and TRUST! Marriage has not proven to be an easy road, however leaning on God's help and nurturing our relationship during challenges has led us to success! I focus on helping couples learn how to manage perpetual conflicts through effective dialogue, accepting influence, turning towards one another, heal from past hurts, and understand each other's perspectives.
Licensed Family & Marriage Therapist
My husband and I enjoy spending time together hiking, traveling, reading the Bible, volunteering, and engaging in social activities with friends and family members. Our family is based on a Christ centered life and have instilled our Lord Jesus Christ as the pillar of our relationships.
