We've all learned or received tools to help us walk through life personally and relationally. Sometimes the tools we've learned need tweaking, other times we need some new tools we didn't know existed. If you find yourself stuck I would love to walk through a chapter of your journey with you to discover what tools might help you move on to the next chapter. My Christian faith has been instrumental through seasons of difficulty and can be incorporated into therapy for those that desire that.

As a counselor, I hope to walk alongside each client to facilitate growth and development in self-identified areas of concern. By working collaboratively with you in a supportive and empathetic style, I hope to challenge each individual into becoming healthy and productive. I believe that for real growth to occur, each client needs to be an active participant in the counseling process. By being open to self-reflection, hard work, and taking needed risks, the counseling experience will prove to be a rewarding one

Anxiety, depression, relationship issues, loss of employment, and countless other challenges can lead to loss of direction and loss of hope. Maybe you feel stuck by your present or your past. I've been there too. When the cloud of struggle keeps you from moving forward, it is important to share your story. You were uniquely created, and your response to the world is yours alone. Sharing your story takes courage, but on the other side is healing, wholeness and your fullest life.

Oftentimes, we spend so much energy trying to live up to roles, ideals, and expectations that we forget who we really are. Or perhaps, we never really had a chance to define our identity in the first place because it was given to us by other people, society or work expectations, or religious demands. These experiences can lead to depression and anxiety, conflict, burnout and exhaustion. At some point, there comes a reckoning when we can no longer continue this way. We need to take time to get in touch with who we really are, and let our authentic selves guide our life decisions, rather than others.

For some, childhood can be a time of happiness, joy and excitement, and for others, it came be a time of disappointment, confusion and pain. When we understand the narratives we were given early on, we can choose to embrace or move beyond them. When there is loss or trauma in a child's life they can often have difficult or challenging relationships with others. Children who are dealing with great pain are often operating in a mode of survival which can make it very hard to allow people to get close. Family Therapy helps them learn how to build stronger and closer connections in spite of the painful things that happened to them.
