During that time, I became addicted to alcohol. Through God’s grace and the help of a pastor with experience in chemical dependency, I was set free of his addiction. This was a pivotal moment for me and not long after I elt a calling on my life to help others break free of their bonds of addiction. I considers myself extremely blessed to join Adult & Teen Challenge Life Renewal Behavioral Health and have the opportunity to fulfill his God-given purpose to counsel individuals struggling with addictions in a Christian setting.

I love walking alongside my clients when they realize that God already gave them what they need to be alleviated from emotional suffering, trauma and addiction. I admire the complexity of all people and their stories. Those who have suffered the most often have the most strength – and I am honored to help my clients recognize this.

I am motivated by Mark 10:45 “For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
