I was stuck … emotionally. I hit a place in life where I found it so difficult just to moving ahead. The simplest tasks and responsibilities felt absolutely overwhelming. I knew something had to give. When a friend heard I was struggling, he told me about Emerge Counseling.

Taking the step to go to counseling was a big one for me. After all, as a pastor and educator I had actually counseling dozens of people myself over the years. Now I found myself in need of it.

Some of the symptoms I was dealing with included:

I had tried just about everything to overcome these debilitating feelings — exercise, prayer, Bible reading, and more. Still — the feelings persisted.

Thankfully, I found my way to Emerge and something incredible happened. I hope you will take a few moments to watch my story.


Due to a local winter storm warning, Emerge Counseling Ministries will be closed Friday, January 19th and will reopen pending improved weather conditions. We are offering telehealth appointments only pending the clinician’s availability to do so.
