As your counselor, I will share professional and personal therapeutic strategies that will help you live a more balanced, connected, and joy-filled life in Christ. I offer counseling for children, teens, adult individuals, and families. Whether you’re dealing with anxiety, depression, grief and loss, relationship issues, concerns related to aging, or other challenges, it would be my pleasure to support you as you walk the path toward growth and healing. With God’s help through Christian counseling, it is possible to experience restoration.
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 am straightforward and often use humor in my practice. I believe it’s so important to be relaxed in this work. I work quickly and don’t waste time getting down to the business of healing people of all ages, backgrounds, genders, relationships, and cultures.
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.
If you feel overwhelmed, exhausted, anxious, depressed, isolated, hopeless, frustrated, or just stuck in life, you have taken the brave first step toward healing by seeking therapy. Life is full of trials, and I endeavor to walk beside my clients with empathy and grace to navigate these difficulties together. I offer professional, evidenced-based Christian counseling for adult individuals and couples. I utilize a compassionate and non-judgmental approach in therapy. No matter where you are in your walk with God, we can work at your own pace to explore your emotional distress and spiritual struggles.
As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with over 18 years of private practice experience, I am passionate about helping my clients move beyond the pain into a more enjoyable life in Christ. Whether you’re dealing with individual struggles, relational problems, or family issues, we will work together in a supportive, collaborative environment to find the solutions that work best for you. Looking for a therapist may feel overwhelming, but you’ve already taken the first step on your path to healing. I look forward to continuing the journey with you and watching the Lord work in your life through our sessions together.
With a gentle, patient spirit, I will listen with care and compassion to really understand your story and help you process through the difficult and traumatic events in your life. As a Christian therapist, I really do care about my clients and want you to know that you are safe to share whatever is on your heart and mind without fear of judgment. While therapy does require work on the part of both client and therapist, through dedication, faith-based therapy is a fantastic way to transform into your best self and improve your relationships, with God’s help.
In Psalm 50:15 God says, “Call upon me in thy day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.” My mom taught me this Scripture when I was three years old. I have used it many times in my life. We all struggle to reach out and let others help, but you are doing just that. You are asking God for guidance, you are calling out for help, and I believe that God will deliver you from your troubles. As a licensed counselor with over 30 years of experience, I will help you evaluate your current circumstances and accomplish your goals by using proven and effective techniques and strategies. As you draw from the power of the Holy Spirit, you will be led down the path of healing and purpose that God has for you.
As your therapist, I will provide you with a welcoming and safe space to explore the desired outcome of your life. With empathy and compassion, I will seek to see your experiences through your lens and work with you toward holistic healing – physical, emotional, mental, relational, and spiritual – with God’s help and direction. My desire is to walk alongside you on this journey and help you to realize the potential you have within to achieve greatness and restoration in your personal life and relationships.
As your therapist, I offer honesty, openness, comfort, and a commitment to seeking God’s guidance and direction for our time together. In John 10:10b, Jesus says, “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” As your counselor, I will listen for those parts of your story where you are not experiencing “life to the full” and explore possibilities for how your story could be expressed differently and with preferred meaning moving forward. Ultimately, my priority is to give my best to your process, and to trust that our mutual commitment toward your healing and wholeness will help draw you closer to the fullness of life that God intends for you.
