As a committed Christian, I can tell you that we are not exempt from trouble. Sometimes the troubles and losses we experience can cause anxiety, stress, depression, hopelessness and despair. If you experience these things, the wise and courageous thing to do is to ask for help. My counseling style is supportive and compassionate, yet challenging when necessary. If you choose to work with me, I will integrate our Christian faith and value system along with evidence-based treatment strategies to help you move from hopelessness toward freedom and healing.
Over the past 17 years, I have focused heavily on the study and treatment of Mood Disorders, including Adjustment Disorders, Depressive Disorders, and Anxiety-Related Disorders. I work with premarital and married couples, and adults facing anxiety, depression, grief/loss, relationship issues, parenting challenges, life transitions and women's issues.
I work in a professional Christian counseling setting. I’m a member of the American Association of Christian Counselors and am listed on referral networks for New Life Ministries and Focus on the Family. Starting counseling is the hardest part, but remember...2 Timothy 1:7 - For God did not give us a Spirit of fear but of power and love and self-control.
