We all struggle with wondering who we are and what we are here for! This is part of being human. If you are struggling it can feel horrible and influence the lens you see the world through. Maybe you’re looking for healing and restoration around a painful event, fertility journey, pregnancy or postpartum experience. Are you searching for your voice, meaning, and hope? Your faith and spirituality are important to you, but do you experience disconnect in knowing how to live a transformed life? Do you just want to be a more authentic person and know counseling helps in some way with that?
My approach is person-centered and strengths based. I utilize motivational interviewing, CBT, mindfulness, EMDR, and emotion focused techniques to help you explore and understand who you are. I integrate faith practices to the degree that it's desired. I love speaking of maternal mental health, regardless of what part of the parenting journey you are on.
Inviting someone to walk with you in your life is a courageous step. I count it an honor and privilege to journey with you. And I firmly believe all people can be made new and well. Call me today to schedule an appointment or brief free phone consultation.
