note to pastors - Northlight Counseling

Pastoral Care Counselors:

I would like to first congratulate you on your devotion to serving the people in your congregation and our community by assisting them in overcoming the myriad of personal problems and issues they face. I am sure this can be an overwhelming burden in many cases. For this reason, I would like to offer my assistance. As a professionally trained and licensed counselor, and a devout Christian for over 33 years, I would be honored to assist you with any mental health, emotional or relationships issues your church members may be experiencing.

I am an advocate of living life by God’s design and direction, and how this produces powerful benefits in the successful treatment of mental health issues. All too often people suffering from these issues receive only one side of the complete solution–spiritual or psychology. But where these two fields find common ground, there lies a powerful catalyst for long term life change. (If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. John 8:31-32)

Together, let’s bridge this gap, and help the people of Lake County to reclaim their identity, relationships, mental health, emotions and purpose that God originally designed for them. My prayer is that they will experience the truth of Christ’s words, “You will be free indeed!” (John 8:36)

My credentials and specialties include:

For over 11 years I was a participating member of Willow Creek Community Church. Then in 1999, I attendedĀ The Chapel in Grayslake, for over 6 years, where I served in Stephen Ministries. In 2005, I returned to Willow Creek, and have been a participating member, for over the past 10 years.

My private practice is uniquely designed for the convenience of my clients:

  • Free 15 minute initial phone consultation.
  • Reasonable rates and many Insurances accepted.
  • Convenient weekend appointments.
  • Available to Speak at your next Church Group, Workshop, Class or Retreat.
  • Telephone and Online Counseling available.

I would love to meet with you to discuss any questions you may have or how we can work together to serve the people in our community through their spiritual, emotional, relational and mental health issues. Please contact me.
