God cares about you and is concerned with every detail of your life. Knowing that God created you as a unique individual with passion and purpose motivates me to come alongside what God is already doing in your life, to help facilitate the healing and growth process. I highly value the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being of each client. I genuinely love and care for others. Your life story and experiences are important. By working to process past hurt, trauma, and negative feedback loops, real progress can take place. I look forward to helping you progress toward healing in order to lead your best life.
I desire to create an environment where you can feel safe, seen, and valued for who you are as an individual made in the image of God. I view our time together as a chance to learn, play, risk, heal, and come away impacted by one another. I employ humor and playfulness in sessions when it is appropriate, but also feel very comfortable with intense feelings of anger and grief. I am not overwhelmed easily by big feelings, so I will invite you to bring those in with you to our sessions instead of leaving them at the proverbial door.
People are my calling. My job is to help people like you heal their lives, relationships, and families. With over two decades of experience helping tens of thousands of individuals, couples, and families, I offer empathy, a listening ear, and a healthy dose of wisdom.

I work quickly and don’t waste time getting down to the business of healing people of all ages, backgrounds, genders, relationships, and cultures.
Whether you’re dealing with depression, anxiety, trauma, porn addiction, relationship issues, or other concerns, I will offer you the same unconditional acceptance and grace that Christ offers. I will work with you to help you overcome the challenges you face so you can live the joy-filled life God desires for you to live. I’ll help you identify and express the emotions you’re feeling so we can get the root cause of your concerns and develop a treatment plan to get you back on the path toward peace and overall health and wellbeing, by God’s grace, truth, and strength.
As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Associate (LMFTA), I have experience working with children, teens, adult individuals, couples, families, and groups.

My desire is for you to experience growth in every area of your life and come to know the true and lasting joy that can be found in Jesus Christ. With compassion and grace, I offer counseling for a wide range of issues including anxiety, depression, relationship issues, family conflict, grief, abandonment, and much more.
Deciding to seek out a counselor can be difficult. Admitting you have an issue you can’t conquer on your own can be unbelievably humbling. We were not made to live in isolation, to figure everything out, or to get through all of life’s challenges alone. As one who has encountered storms in life, I can tell you that no matter how strong the wind and the waves may be, you can weather and overcome them through Jesus Christ. Combining my biblical and mental health training with my 23 years of experience in the field, I would be honored to come alongside you to help you find healing and restoration.
As your counselor, I will ensure that you are heard and understood in every session. I am here to help you be the best version of yourself.

Helping couples heal their relationships by first better understanding themselves is what I do as a Christian counselor. I offer you support and insight for overcoming obstacles that stand in the way of forming lasting, fulfilling relationships with others and God.

With this knowledge, you can learn how to make healthy choices that will help you grow in all the relationships in your life.
Knowing when it’s time to seek counseling takes wisdom, courage, and humility. As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, I have experience in helping people who feel broken and unsure about the future. My goal is to help you seek positive change in all areas of your life. Anxiety, depression, aging, codependency, sexual abuse, and other traumas affect our relationships with those we want to love, including ourselves. I’m here to walk with you on your unique journey and welcome you to explore faith as a way to enhance your life and recovery.
Life should be more than just pain and trials. Though they can serve a purpose, I believe that God has much more in store for you. My hope is to help you discover the wonderful joys and strength that lie beneath the pain and trauma you might be facing. Through Christ, we can conquer fear and find freedom, healing, and purpose. Whatever challenges you face, I offer you a safe place for you to discover all that God can do for your life.
Whether you’re dealing with anxiety, an eating disorder, depression, trauma recovery, relationship issues, challenges with your child or teenager, or some other obstacle, Christian counseling can help.

Psalms 107:29 tells us, “He caused the storm to be still, So that the waves of the sea were hushed.” If the waves of your life are crashing down around you, come seek shelter in Christian counseling. It saved me when I found myself caught in the storms and it can save you, too. I will work with you to first get your head above water and eventually teach you how to swim with confidence. With Jesus’ help, you can overcome your fears, let go of losses, and grow in God to walk on the water of your faith.

I have witnessed the amazing work of God in my own life and so many others, and it would be my privilege to walk with you as you seek to discover Him as your true source of lasting hope.
There is no “magic bullet” or easy shortcut for most of life’s problems. The degree to which we overcome such challenges is the degree to which we work on them. Christian counseling is one effective way of “putting in the work,” so to speak. If you’re looking for lasting positive change in your life, Christian counseling may be the answer. I will use my professional training and decades of counseling experience to help you overcome the concerns you face. Together and with God’s help, you can find a place of healing and peace in Him.
I believe the family unit is one of the most important aspects of our society. If family bonds can be strengthened, many other issues in this world will resolve themselves. As a Licensed Marriage and Family Associate, I seek to work with families to identify needs and trigger points and provide healthy solutions grounded in faith. Counseling sessions with my clients may address the union between husband and wife, parent to child relationships, past family experiences, and other interpersonal dynamics. If you feel as if you’re stuck in an unhelpful cycle, I’ll seek to help you to find peace.
As a counselor, I seek to be sensitive to my clients’ physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual condition during any given session, following their lead to determine which direction we’ll go with our conversation. I try not to push beyond their capacity, but rather gently guide and point things out as we travel together on the path toward healing and well-being. I provide a welcoming, judgment-free zone in which clients can share their burdens and feel heard and understood. I’d love to chat with you about how you can write a new chapter in your story.
I have a God-given passion for seeing individuals and families walking in wholeness and healing. I honor your courage to pursue a more fulfilling and joy-filled life.

As a Christian counselor, I see the therapeutic relationship as a collaborative process as I partner with my clients and rely on the Holy Spirit's presence and participation as both comforter and revealer of truth and wisdom.
With more than three decades of counseling experience, I offer compassion, empathy, and guidance during times of trouble.

We will then tackle your issues utilizing a combination of sound therapeutic techniques while drawing strength and guidance through faith and the Word of God.

As your counselor, I am here to support you through whatever conflict you are facing. Through our sessions together, I will teach you the tools you need to be the best version of who God created you to be. As a Christian social worker, my desire is to serve my clients as a vessel for Christ, using the gifts the Lord has given me to heal brokenness and restore hope, with God’s help.

We were made for more than just pleasure, knowledge, and hard work. We were created as images of God, to reflect His goodness to the world. Yet we all encounter seasons in which we struggle to see that God is good. Sometimes He can seem distant or judgemental, or unwilling to answer our hard questions and doubts. You may struggle to experience any real peace or joy, or perhaps you feel as though you just cannot keep away from that forbidden tree. The Scriptures speak of humanity’s perpetual failure and God’s continual restoration. No matter what you may be going through, Christ can handle your mess. It would be my honor to walk with you as you journey toward the hope, peace, and healing that can be found only in Him.
My goal during our sessions is for you to feel that you are in a safe space and can take a moment to breathe. Change and growth can be hard work, but you will not have to face it alone. Even in the darkest areas, I believe that light can be found and that together we can discover the path forward. Although it is not always easy, there is always hope. With God’s help and proven therapeutic techniques, you can overcome the things that hold you back, become empowered, and believe the truth that you are valuable and loved.
God blessed me with rich life experiences as a classical musical artist before mid-life. Having lived a full life before becoming a therapist, and in particular as a minority as well as being a woman, allows me to provide informed and compassionately present client care, and an added capacity to empathize with the human condition. I also have five higher education degrees that include degrees in psychology (neuroscience research focus) and clinical social work with intensive training on counselling those with life-limiting illnesses. My hope is that through counseling, you will experience God’s beauty, healing, and recovery, and ultimately a celebration of all that is in store for you in your unique personal journey hand-in-hand with our Lord. Together, let’s remind each other incessantly to keep our eyes on Jesus and “Trust the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him and he will make your path straight” (Proverbs 3:5-6).
One of my greatest joys is to connect with people on a relational level. My multicultural background and experience enable me to relate well to numerous types of individuals. I enjoy integrating God’s Word into every aspect of life and believe that even the most dire circumstances can be transformed for good with the help of the Holy Spirit. One of my passions is to coach individuals toward reaching their personal and professional ambitions. I would love to meet with you to discuss how we can work together to achieve your aspirations.
