“I am honored to be able to serve the people of our community and surrounding areas. I am a native of the Canton area and am very thankful to call this region my home. I am keenly aware that life’s journey is one that can be very challenging. Through FNHC, I desire to create a safe place where individuals, couples, and families can work toward finding hope, healing, and inspiration. If you are experiencing challenges in life, you do not have to travel the journey alone or even try to figure it out by yourself. I invite you to call and make an appointment to see if FNHC can help.”
