Deciding to seek out a counselor can be difficult. Admitting you have an issue you can’t conquer on your own can be unbelievably humbling. We were not made to live in isolation, to figure everything out, or to get through all of life’s challenges alone. As one who has encountered storms in life, I can tell you that no matter how strong the wind and the waves may be, you can weather and overcome them through Jesus Christ. Combining my biblical and mental health training with my 23 years of experience in the field, I would be honored to come alongside you to help you find healing and restoration.
If you are facing difficulties in life or you’re feeling stuck and unable to achieve the growth and healing you desire, I am here to help. My hope is that my office will become a haven for you to find shelter and security from life’s storms—a place where you will feel comfortable to share your concerns, so we can work together toward lasting peace with God’s help. Whether you’re looking for guidance for yourself as an individual, couples counseling, family counseling, or therapy for your child or teen, I will provide the support you seek.
One of my greatest joys is to connect with people on a relational level. My multicultural background and experience enable me to relate well to numerous types of individuals. I enjoy integrating God’s Word into every aspect of life and believe that even the most dire circumstances can be transformed for good with the help of the Holy Spirit. One of my passions is to coach individuals toward reaching their personal and professional ambitions. I would love to meet with you to discuss how we can work together to achieve your aspirations.
Many of us view ourselves as “less than” what we really are as children of God. As we meet together, I will endeavor to hold the flashlight so to speak, in order to illuminate your path so you can find healing, confidence, and a strong sense of self – ultimately enabling you to create a life worth living. With empathy, adaptability, and humility, I will listen to your story, help you find and identify the root causes of whatever issues you’re facing, and offer practical tools to help you overcome your personal difficulties and challenges.
God can make a new way even in the most difficult circumstances. Every life is a story filled with chapters of happiness, tragedy, joy, sadness, and triumph. As a Christian counselor, I provide you with a safe, loving, and grace-filled space in which you can get comfortable and freely examine the pages of your life. Together we will read between the lines and explore the meaning of each chapter, uncovering the message God has buried in the spoken and unspoken words of your story so that you can turn the page on the past and begin a new chapter with Him.

Knowing when it’s time to seek counseling takes wisdom, courage, and humility. As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate, I have experience in helping people who feel broken and unsure about the future.

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.
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.
