Personal

Emily grew up in north Alabama and moved with her husband, two children, and cat from St. Petersburg, Florida to north Georgia to be closer to family. Growing up in church, Emily heard about God and the Bible's teachings but only began to grow in her relationship with Christ after a college mission trip to Russia. She met and married her husband in Russia and continued to grow in her faith through marriage, parenthood, and life's ups and downs. Emily enjoys traveling, reading, watercolor painting, and learning Russian.

Vision

Emily believes that God uses people to help those who are hurting find relief, hope, and restoration. Scripture tells us that where God's Spirit is, there is freedom. Emily views the counseling process as coming alongside others to walk with them through pain in the hope that God will use her to help people find renewal and freedom. We have a Savior who has lived among us and who has experienced emotional suffering just as we do. He desires for us to be free spiritually so that we can enjoy fellowship with God and with one another.
