Welcome to Stay Free Ministries, a faith-based agency where you can learn how to maintain a life of freedom and fulfillment. I am pleased that you have selected me as your counselor and coach. I plan to use my skills to mobilize you in the right direction to succeed as we walk through your journey together. Stay Free Ministries is a confidential multi-discipline program, designed to help bring inner healing and peace to the hurting. The program offers Christian counseling, life coaching, educational classes, prayer and inner healing.
MISSION & APPROACH
To promote the highest level of success for one’s life. To encourage growth and self-fulfillment by assisting individuals in achieving their goals of enhanced performance and personal satisfaction. Stay Free Ministries offers two approaches, secular and non-secular. Counseling and coaching assumes that each person in the relationship is guided by his or her values and beliefs. As your counselor or coach, my guiding values are rooted in Christian principals and beliefs. I respect the different values and beliefs of others. I will not impose my values and beliefs on another and will not refuse services to people with differing values and beliefs.
