Welcome to Purposeful Counseling

Healing through Psychology + Theology

I started Purposeful Counseling to help individuals that have experienced troubling events to get back to a healthy and fulfilling lifestyle. I use EMDR therapy to help with reprocessing intensive thoughts and feelings surrounding that horrific event to make it more tolerable. I endorse this therapy because I’ve gone through it personally and seen the amazing results. Christian aspects and teachings will be incorporated to enhance the healing process. You shouldn’t go through your trauma alone. Let me help you with your journey.
