You are probably reading this because you are suffering from depression, anxiety, anger, a marital conflict, or an addiction and you believe that God is leading you to a Christian counselor. If so, then I would consider it an honor and a privilege to serve as your counselor. Christian counseling is my calling and my passion. I have over 25 years of professional Christian counseling experience to offer in ministering to your needs, and I continue to find my work deeply meaningful and satisfying.

Selecting your counselor can be one of the most important decisions of your life. Also, counseling requires a significant commitment of time and resources — both yours and mine. So before we go further, let’s make absolutely certain that my services match what you’re looking for in your counselor.

This website is designed to help in that regard. After reviewing my counseling approach, feel free to call my office (815/229-8750) to set your first appointment. (The best time to call and talk to me directly is between  9 AM and noon Monday-Friday (CST). After you set your appointment, please print each of the following five documents (PDF files) and bring each form fully completed to your first session.

If you have any questions not answered here, please feel free to call my office at 815-229-8750.
