About

I believe everyone should be treated as they were created, Imago Dei, in His likeness. Soul care is best carried out following the traits of our Wonderful Counselor Jesus Christ. Empathy, genuineness, and kindness are the foundation. Anything less is merely applying a band-aid to your wounds.

A Little About Me

I am navigating through this world, walking alongside, rejoicing with, and ministering to others. I acknowledge I am limited and need the wisdom of the Holy Spirit and God’s grace every day and in every circumstance, this journey takes me through. I still fail miserably, but God is faithful to sustain me, and for this, I am thankful and blessed.

By God’s grace, I am focused on helping our nation’s Warriors thrive and flourish, not merely survive each day. They are at the heart of my ministry, and I am honored to serve our Veterans and their families in this capacity.

I am a certified facilitator for two well-known marriage assessment tools. I believe in resilient marriages and can help guide you in creating a healthy, God-honoring marriage that can withstand the societal pressures that often steer couples away from each other.

I diligently advocate for veteran suicide awareness and am certified in the P.A.I.R. (Prevention, Assessment, Intervention & Recovery) suicide prevention program.

Finally, my “baby” is the #22vetsnomore movement I created over 6 years ago. If you love and support our veterans or you are a veteran, you can find and follow 22vetsnomore on Instagram. Please consider participating in Rudy’s Project. An act of kindness rooted in one veteran’s desire to be remembered.

My current background includes BS In psychology: Military Resilience and MA in Pastoral Counseling: Marriage and Family. Soul care is provided with the Bible as the basis, however, psychology offers insight into human behaviors, and is subject to God’s authority, therefore, my background in psychology allows me to further understand people and situations. Everything under God’s authority is profitable if properly used.

I have learned to understand who I am, what motivates me, and what causes me to stumble. Emotional intelligence is something I never explored until I completed my BS in Psychology. I seek to be real and to help you to fine-tune areas in which you struggle.

Veterans appreciate my straightforward, no-nonsense approach to coming to terms with their “demons.” When I say IGY6, I mean it–but that also means that we must have a certain level of trust…and Veterans know this. I am well aware of everything Veteran and can relate in a way most professionals cannot. There is a big gap in Veteran care, and it is in that gap from which I operate. You are not alone.

My past includes writing and creating. I have written over 30 educational curricula and adult/children’s Bible studies. It was a fruitful season that provided many opportunities to grow as a person.

It is my prayer that you are blessed by the content of this site and find encouragement to press on toward the goal set before you.
