Are you struggling with anxiety and depression due to life transitions such as divorce, infertility, the death of a loved one, college stress or the loss of a dream, and seeking Christian counseling? Have you experienced trauma in your life and you feel stuck under the weight of worry and fear? Are “shoulds” and “musts” leaving you paralyzed with thoughts of “I’m not good enough” and “I don’t matter”? Often people wait to reach out until they feel depleted, resentful, and ashamed. I believe we get stuck due to our thinking, and the way we get unstuck is to change our thinking! But is it possible? Yes! It doesn't have to be this way!

I have a passion for helping people who are in need. I want to help them develop the skills necessary to do whatever it is they want to do. In my field, that's often a goal of sobriety and recovery. It's not for me to decide what is best for my clients. I try to help them determine if their current actions help or hinder their own goals in life. I offer a place where my clients can be themselves without receiving any judgement from me. I help clients in their areas of need, and in the areas in which they want help. I believe an honest, caring therapeutic relationship is important to provide the help my clients need.

I believe that feeling comfortable and cared about are essential to your counseling experience. Positive change occurs when the client feels heard and empowered. When trust is established, clients feel safe in knowing that they can be honest. If you have lost a loved one, found yourself down in the dumps, feel anxious, or are experiencing other life challenges then it may be time to seek professional help. I offer an inviting atmosphere and a safe place in which clients can learn about themselves and develop the skills to overcome their challenges. I offer Christian counseling for those who are seeking this service.

While receiving my Masters I was skillfully trained in incorporating sound biblical principles into the therapeutic session, however, I always give my clients full choice in how much spirituality is integrated into sessions. I never push or shove religion on my clients. I think that it’s important to note that I haven’t always been the one in the therapist’s chair, but I’ve been on the couch divulging the hardest parts of my life. I’ve experienced, the lack of desire, the desperation, breakthrough moments, falling back into patterns, etc. I am equipped to help carry other’s burdens in a safe and open space because I can relate.

Do you want help making sense of your life's journey? Are you struggling with fear, depression or desire healing from a traumatic event? Do you want your relationships to be healthier and happier? Life can be full of pain and often our responses to pain can push us deeper into despair. When we have hope, we are able to move forward through anything, but oftentimes we find that hope dashed. We live in a world that is full of loneliness and I would be honored to walk alongside you as you learn to hope again.

Sometimes we encounter a point in life that feels overwhelming, or sometimes things are manageable but a lot to bear, and there comes a time when you need a professional to guide you through it. That's where I come in! I believe that clients are the experts of their life, meaning they take me on their journey, and I am simply there as a guide to help navigate what can be a windy path. Therapy is vulnerable, therefore I strive to create a safe environment by being my authentic self, meeting clients with kindness and grace and bringing in light humor, and I hope that you will feel comfortable to authentically be yourself, too.

We are made for relationships. When we don't have good relationships, the rest of life becomes overwhelming. Therapy is about learning how to relate to people in a healthy way, with good boundaries, emotional intelligence, and (appropriate) love. By looking at the past and how it shapes the present, we can be more free to choose a different future. Healing comes for those who don't want to repeat the past anymore but have freedom moving forward with those that they love. We will work on this goal together.
