About

Whether you are struggling with a particular issue, or just cannot shake the feeling that there may be more to life, I can help. I provide a caring environment in which you can identify and explore those issues that may be getting in the way of a more rewarding home life and career, or of more fulfilling relationships. The goal is to help provide you with the insight and tools you need to move beyond old limiting beliefs and behaviors. "Be careful how you think; your life is shaped by your thoughts." Proverbs 4:23 (NCV
My expertise is in cognitive behavior therapy, solution-focused brief therapy, and REBT. I treat depression, anxiety, Christian counseling, women's issues, relationship and domestic violence, eating disorders, and stress management. In my practice, you will feel safe and understood while sharing and exploring your life.
