Tim believes that the client has within themselves the ability to grow and change. His role as the counselor is to collaborate with people to identify their strengths and the resilience that will bring about hope and healing.

Tim approaches therapy from a Christian worldview, but out of care and respect, always makes space to prioritize the worldview of the client.
