Welcome to Sonshine Counseling
Licensed Professional Counselor
Board Certified Prof. Christian Counselor
Nationally Certified Counselor
Board Certified Prof. Life Coach

Prior to entering Avila's program to receive an MS in Counseling Psychology, I was involved in lay prayer counseling and took a Christian-based prayer counseling course. I have a deep commitment to God and believe that ultimately, He is the healer. My job is to help people develop a closer connection with Him. I work from a Cognitive-Behavioral theoretical perspective based on Biblical truth. I seek God's direction in adjusting the treatment to the needs of the client. However, our sessions are planned together to include what you want to accomplish. I will honor your wishes and perspectives.
