Utilizing his education, life experiences and God-given insight, Dale has seen God touch the lives of many through him. Dale believes that God is the ultimate source of healing and hope and that he is simply an individual God uses to help others. Dale also believes that every person has the choice to accept or reject his counsel. He shares his insight and counsel but does not pressure others to accept what he shares.

With compassionate understanding, Dale makes every effort to address the immediate emotional needs of each person he counsels. Clients are given the freedom to share at their own comfort level and have the right to discontinue the counseling process at any time. Should the client desire or sense the need to address deeper issues behind the immediate problem, we move forward at the pace the client is comfortable with.
