Life is not a pattern of symmetry and neither is it a straight line. We do find ourselves in a condition we did not bargain for and wonder whether we can come out of it. For some people, they have experienced fumbles, stumbles and tumbles, but they have been able to avoid a crumble. Nevertheless, some loses have been incurred in the process and they need help and they want to pick up their pieces and make a new start. After all, they believe that to fall is not to fail because they can stand again. It is this kind of people I love to sit with and hear their stories and walk by their side as we forge a new beginning together. I am a person of faith and I believe in the power of hope. If you want a partner in your walk of life and in search of healing of the wounds from the past and current life, you have found one in me. Let’s connect. I can listen with empathy and understanding.



I come from a wide background as a professional accountant and pastor. I am also a father of successful young adults and I know what it takes to raise one and having been one myself. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Pastoral Theology from L.I.F.E Theological Seminary, and a Master of Divinity degree from Fuller Theological Seminary. A Master of Business Administration degree from Aston Business School, Aston University, Birmingham, UK. I am in the last year of completing a Master of Arts degree in Clinical Psychology  (with emphasis on Marriage and Family Therapy) at Azusa Pacific University.
