Message to clients

You are unique, just like two drops of water aren't the same. You have values despite being covered by pain. Growing up, I lived in a world of scarcity. I came from a wealthy family. As a result of my parents' mismanagement, we went bankrupt. In spite of this, I took advantage of every opportunity that came my way. Thus, I am a mental health therapist, a church pastor, a father of three, and a grandfather of five. My experience has taught me how to deal with your challenges. Every individual possesses an opposing force. If you find the resources you need, you can make a positive impact. Through Christ, who strengthened me, I can accomplish anything.
