As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and experienced Christian Conflict and Relationship Coach, it is my privilege to help individuals, couples, and families work through the challenges and struggles that they face in life. Whether you’re dealing with difficulty in your marriage, other relationship issues, depression, anxiety, trauma, or some other conflict or concern, I would be honored to help you find the tools you need to experience the peace and healing you desire.
Each of us experiences times in our lives when pain, stress, confusion, or despair overwhelms and threatens to consume us, or when we find ourselves stuck in patterns that we can’t seem to escape, desiring change but unable to figure out where to begin. It takes tremendous courage to admit our need for help, and even more so, to ask for that help. And yet, this is often where healing begins – when we allow another person to come alongside us, help us to see what we can’t see, and offer a sense of hope for us when hope seems absent. It would be my honor to join you wherever you are in your journey toward greater emotional, relational, and spiritual health and freedom.
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.
I would count it an honor and privilege to journey with you through the trials of life. As you seek to navigate through the issues that bring you to counseling, I will partner with you to find healing and hope. Life can bring many challenges, but I believe God wants to deliver us and bring us victory as we learn to lean on Him. He is constantly at work in our lives and desires for us to thrive! Through counseling and with His help, you can experience the joy and peace you desire.
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.
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.
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.
I’m a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, passionate about helping individuals and couples find healing and peace for their lives and relationships. If you struggle with issues like anxiety and depression, grief and loss, relationship issues, or sexual addiction, I’m here to offer you compassionate support and tools for recovery. I look forward to working with you.
