Welcome to Social Work Ministries

Teach me, my Lord, to be sweet and gentle in all the events of life, in disappointments, in the thoughtlessness of those I trusted, in the unfaithfulness of those on whom I relied.  Let me put myself aside, to think of the happiness of others, to hide my little pains and heartaches, so that I may be the only one to suffer from them.Teach me to profit by the suffering that comes upon my path.  Let me use it so it may mellow me, not harden nor embitter me; patient, not irritable.  That it may make me broad in my forgiveness, not narrow, haughty and overbearing.  May no one be less good for having come within my influence.  No one less pure, less true, less kind, less noble for having been a fellow traveler on our journey toward Eternal Life.  As I go on my rounds from one distraction to another, let me whisper from time to time, a word of love to Thee.  May my life be lived in the supernatural, full of power for good, and strong in its purpose of sanctity.  Amen.
 
As a Therapist, I help people come to terms with their feelings about crisis situations and explore the options available to them. I assist clients in reaching short-term goals while helping them put together long-range treatment plans. As a Christian Therapist, I use the Bible to help people come to terms with their faith and spiritual issues and explore biblical solutions to their crisis situations and explore the options available to them.
 
 
MISSION STATEMENT
 
As a Christian trained in Clinical Social Work and Divinity my goal is to use this website as well as my formal training and practicum experiences in psychology, sociology, social work and divinity to help individuals and families come to terms with their crisis situations and explore the options available to them.
 
 
 
Lord, make me an instrument of Thy peace, where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; and where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved; as to love, for it is in giving that we receive, it is in pardoning that we are pardoned, and it is in dying that we are born into eternal life.   (St. Francis of Assisi)
 
Now I lay me down to sleep.
I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
The Angels watch me through the night
until I awake in the Morning Light.
