Carol Woods


II Peter 1:3 tells us that God has given us everything we need for life and godliness.  This includes counselors who can give a different perspective to see if there is a solution that has not been considered before.  Often, people have been thrown a “curveball” in life and need someone to come alongside them who can handle their difficult issues respectfully and confidentially.  It is my privilege to be that person in my clients’ lives.
