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.
I have a very relaxed and approachable vibe and hope to create a safe and warm environment where you can come as you are and feel truly accepted and seen, both by me and the Lord. The relationship between the counselor and client is pivotal and it’s important to have a therapist you feel like you can trust and open up to. I value laughter and humor and, where appropriate, enjoy incorporating this into our time together. I have also worked with individuals who have special needs and am perceptive, flexible, and accommodating in order to make your time in therapy fit well with your individual needs.
I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist with experience helping people overcome a wide variety of issues. My hope is that you will find restoration through therapy while forming a stronger relationship with God. I offer you compassion, evidence-based approaches to improving well being and resiliency, and individualized strategies and tools for living fully. Together, we will customize a plan of treatment for your unique needs.
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.
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.
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.
As your counselor, I will listen to you and your story without judgment. I will work alongside you with your best interests in mind. In our sessions together, I will follow your lead and be sensitive to your limitations. With a gentle balance, I will graciously nudge you when appropriate and give you space to process as necessary. I specialize in counseling for teens and adults, working through a wide variety of issues including anxiety, depression, trauma, grief and loss, abandonment, relationship issues, and much more. I look forward to hearing your story and watching the Lord work 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.
As a Christian counselor, I believe our relationship with Jesus Christ, as well as faith and biblical principles, serve as the foundation of the therapeutic alliance. Whether you are suffering from depression, anxiety, trauma, or a clinical disorder, I provide a safe space in which you can identify and work through your presenting problems by using God’s Word and the power of prayer coupled with evidence-based practice as guidance. I am part of a multicultural family, and I work well with adults from various multicultural and socioeconomic backgrounds. Please note I work exclusively with adults age 18 and older. I look forward to serving you as you see God move and transform your life!
With 30 years of experience in pastoral counseling, it is my privilege to hear people’s stories and come alongside individuals to encourage them and help them find hope that’s real. Lasting change and meaningful growth are possible even when you are feeling stuck. Whether you’re struggling with career changes, relationship struggles, family drama, tough decisions or painful, personal issues, I will work with you to overcome the challenges you face with God’s help. I strongly believe that God is at work in each counseling session, both in me as a therapist and in you as the client. Together we will depend on Him for direction as we use proven therapeutic techniques and guidance from His Word to reach a place of healing and wholeness in Christ.
