I am a Christian Psychologist and although I have been practicing psychology for more than 20 years, I still find tremendous joy from my work.

I believe in creating a safe & warm environment for my client, within which they can explore and solve their problems and grow towards their true potential.

I believe in continued studies that should feed my experience.

I believe that a strong relationship with God, a loving marriage, solid family relationships and good Christian values, is the foundation of a healthy society.
