Life can be hard. God did not promise us that life was going to be easy, but He does not call us to do it on our own. I believe that things can get better, and I will meet you where you are and hold on to hope for you when you cannot. My hope is that your growth will transform various relationships and areas in your life and help you become a better son or daughter, friend, parent, co-worker, classmate, or spouse.

My hope for you is that through our sessions together, you will find relief from the pain you’re experiencing and reach the goals you’ve set for yourself.

With integrity and compassion, I will listen carefully to your story and experiences and work closely with you to develop a treatment plan to meet your needs.
As your counselor, I will listen to you and your story without judgment. I will work alongside you with your best interests in mind.

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.
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 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 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.
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.
As your counselor, I will help you recognize where your true hope and peace can be found.

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.
Are you overwhelmed by intrusive thoughts and compulsive behaviors? Maybe you are losing the battle with pornography or you and your partner are working through an affair.

Too often clients come into counseling feeling a sense of failure or defeat, but I believe the very act of making your first appointment is a victory, a decision to take care of yourself and get the support you need. As a Christian counselor, my goal is to help you find hope and strength, worth and peace, not in spite of your trials and pain, but by having lived through them. My hope is that through our sessions you will gain a deeper knowledge that even in the midst of your brokenness, you are a beloved child of God.
In Psalm 50:15 God says, “Call upon me in thy day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.” My mom taught me this Scripture when I was three years old. I have used it many times in my life. We all struggle to reach out and let others help, but you are doing just that. You are asking God for guidance, you are calling out for help, and I believe that God will deliver you from your troubles. As a licensed counselor with over 30 years of experience, I will help you evaluate your current circumstances and accomplish your goals by using proven and effective techniques and strategies. As you draw from the power of the Holy Spirit, you will be led down the path of healing and purpose that God has for you.
You were created in the image of God for the purpose of bringing Him glory. Perhaps you are currently in a season in which you do not feel that you are bringing glory to God. Maybe you are even questioning whether you were made in His image. Many people reach a point in their lives when they feel stuck. They want to move forward, but they feel powerless and don’t know where to turn. Using biblical principles, warmth, and patience, I will work with you to seek lasting, positive change that will help you reflect God’s image and bring Him glory.

I specialize in helping teens and adult individuals and couples find healing and move toward recovery from a variety of mental health issues including trauma, depression, anxiety, anger issues, and challenges with grief and loss, as well as conflict in relationships. Reaching out for help when you're struggling is one of the bravest things you can do, and the first step in finding true healing. Life is full of surprises which can sometimes seem impossible to overcome. However, with God’s help, proper guidance, and some hard work, the road ahead can look much brighter.
Life on this earth is hard. At times it can seem unbearable. As Jesus said, “In this life you will have trouble. But take heart, for I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).

Together we will work toward a solution that is focused on your strengths to create a more resourceful and resilient person grounded in Christ.
