I enjoy helping my clients on their journey to better themselves and those around them. I believe that all of us get stuck at times throughout our lives, and can use some guidance and someone to talk to. I have experience working with clients who struggle with depression, anxiety, and relationship issues. I believe that God has a plan for us all and wants us to be happy and fulfilled in life. Currently, I am offering Telehealth.
You don't feel like you are enough. In fact, sometimes you think if you were just a different person, things would be better. Confidence is fleeting. You feel uncomfortable in your own skin. Your thoughts are plagued by what others think of you and you are riddled with guilt for just about everything. You long for a relationship that is fulfilling and/or fears keep you in the one you know you shouldn't be in. Finding your voice and gaining a sense of self is possible. You can unleash yourself of negative relationship patterns too.
If you have a relationship challenge, you have come to the right place. Whether you are struggling with your marriage, an adolescent child, a parent, sibling or even a friend or work colleague; you can sort it out with me. I can support a family that is divorcing to have the most healthy transition. I work with individual issues that effect relationships such as anxiety disorders, current and past abuse, along with the full range of adolescent struggles.
I was a professional airplane and helicopter pilot (civilian) before transitioning to a career as a therapist. I flew and worked with many veterans and learned about their struggles after deployment and separating from the military. Some of these challenges were reuniting with family, feelings of isolation, loss of purpose and meaning and moral injury. I also learned about veterans’ resilience as they faced these challenges. Working as a team, I can help navigate your transition to civilian life by improving your ability to cope with difficult emotions and thoughts using various types of therapy tailored for you and your goals.

“The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts” ~ Marcus Aurelius How we think affects how we feel and therefore how we tend to behave.

I am a Christian Counselor seeing clients for marital, emotional, and family issues. I like to work with serious and deep issues in a safe and laid-back atmosphere. I've been doing this for eight years and enjoy it immensely. I use primarily Cognitive-Behavioral and Biblical approaches to get to the root of your issues so they can be dealt with convincingly. It is hard to believe, but the things you have carried around for YEARS can be minimized and often resolved. Some work is required, but results are a lot more possible than they presently feel.
