My Goal as a Christian Counselor
It is my belief that as relational human beings, our relationship with Christ is the most important aspect of each of us individually. I strive to incorporate your personal relationship with Christ within counseling in a holistic manner. I hope that through our time together, you can experience the wholeness and healing our Father offers us. I will aim to empower you to use your own God-given abilities and strengths to overcome the burdens and life situations that are preventing you or holding you back from experiencing joy, health, and wholeness. I will endeavor to help you identify and realize your goals, working with you to promote personal stability as well as growth and change. My hope for you is that, through counseling, you will gain peace and fulfillment in your relationships with God, others, and yourself.
What I Offer in Christian Counseling
As a trained counselor, I can offer you professional insight coupled with compassion. I maintain current knowledge of evidence-based counseling methods. In my office, I strive to cultivate a safe, comfortable atmosphere in which you will feel at ease to speak your mind and unburden yourself without fear of judgment. Ultimately, I endeavor to provide you with encouragement and discernment as you journey towards a greater sense of health and wholeness.
My Approach to Christian Counseling
I am a very flexible counselor and strive to adapt my methods to meet the needs of each client who seeks counseling. Throughout our time together, I will check in frequently to determine with you what is working and what needs to change. In general, however, I tend to work from a strengths-based perspective, which means that I will encourage you to discover and use your own strengths to overcome challenges. I am highly collaborative and goal-oriented, and will do whatever I can within my abilities to empower you to meet your goals, whether those include life changes or simply finding peace within your life.

More About Me
I have personally suffered through grief and loss. I have struggled to learn how to live life with long-term health issues and know what it looks like to live with physical pain. I have walked with church families through painful leadership crises, and I know what it means for a community to mourn and heal together. My own experiences walking through trauma have given me an understanding and compassion when supporting others through the challenges that inevitably arise in life. While these periods of my life have been difficult and disillusioning at times, I have come to a place now where I can recognize that God was preparing me for a specific time and calling, and I consider it a privilege to help others discern God’s purpose and calling within their own lives. Following trauma, it can be difficult to pick up and move forward, it is my goal to help others find a way to begin again.
