Faith Statement

I have had the privilege to work at Pine Rest since 2002. This experience has been very fulfilling, personally and professionally. Here at Pine Rest, I have been able to work with people “where they are”. Meaning that if someone wants to discuss faith issues I have been able to talk freely about Jesus Christ and encourage people in a way that was limited at other facilities. It also means that if someone does not want to discuss faith issues, I can respect this and work with them at the level that they are comfortable.

As a Christian, I have come to rely on God’s word for my encouragement. My hope and prayer is that with God’s strength, I can encourage those who come to me in pain. I have always felt that my work as a therapist is not just a job but a calling. And I am grateful to have the opportunity to touch the lives of others.
