Pastor Resources

Counseling

  • Sometimes it’s very helpful to have an objective, trained person involved in listening to and understanding our current struggles. We want to be of support to you and help you find the resources you need to address the difficulties you may be facing. Please feel free to reach out to me so I can assist you in finding the right method and person for you. As a pastor and licensed therapist myself, I understand the unique needs of pastors and have many connections in the counseling community. If you prefer to move forward on your own, below is a list of therapists and organizations who profess faith in Christ with whom I have had positive and helpful experiences

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.
