I believe therapy is a place where stories are honored, relationships are mended, feelings are heard, and people are fully seen. As a therapist, I seek to join my clients on their journeys through life, in both the high and low places. I believe that having someone to ride the roller coaster with us is half the battle of reaching health. My Christian perspective allows me to hold hope for my clients when they are struggling to hold onto it themselves because I believe in the goodness of their Savior. I compassionately work with clients of all ages, with an emphasis on child therapy, premarital education, and grief and anxiety counseling for adults.
My Goal as a Christian Counselor
My goal as your counselor is to help you rediscover your infinite worth. I have found that mental health difficulties often rob us of our belief in our value, but in working together, I pray we can grow this sense of self-worth in you. I also work from an extremely relational stance and thus prioritize fostering healing in your relationships with others, yourself, and God. Most of all, I hope our time together rekindles your hope.
What I Offer in Christian Counseling
Counseling sessions with me tend to be very conversational. I strive to make space for any and every topic (nothing is off the table) and honor our time together as your own to do with as you will. As a result, the pacing of therapy is up to you, though sometimes I will push conversations I believe are integral to your healing process or suggest a homework assignment I think will be helpful to you. I also take time to honor the good things happening in your life and love to bring laughter into sessions.
My Approach to Christian Counseling
Faith allows us to hold onto the hope that we are seen, known, and unconditionally loved for all of who we are, not just the picture perfect parts. We serve a good God who knows what it is to suffer. Approaching counseling with this knowledge allows us to work from a stance of never being alone and always being known, which is freeing in and of itself. As your counselor, I believe these things about you even when you struggle to believe them yourself and walk alongside you as you rediscover these truths.
