We are a mother/daughter team, both mental health professionals with complimentary backgrounds and experience. We bring to The King’s Counseling Services, a unique understanding of “life happening”. We are both committed to promoting truth and social policy that will improve the strength and mental health of the individual, the family, and our communities. Although we are close today this was not always true. Now, together, we can share a God given story to encourage others when tough times visit. And they do visit!
