We believe that life’s issues and challenges are rooted not only in the effects of the world, but are also spiritual that the Gospel brings hope, healing as well as transforms lives. Our passion is to not just help individuals and marriages to locate the problem and find a solution, but discover change is possible and lasting through Jesus and the Word of God.
As a Pastoral Counselor (a professional psychotherapist who holds a non licensure graduate degree and is training in counseling while integrating both psychotherapy and faith into the counseling process) and Pastor, Rob and Sharon utilize Biblical principals, Scripture, and prayer coupled with modes of therapy such as CBT and EMDR to walk with you as you discover and begin to walk in the story God has written for you.
