About

Accepting new clients February 2023. If you would like to be added to the waitlist, please contact. If you have never been in therapy before, it can feel a bit overwhelming and you may not know what to expect. If you have been in therapy before, this experience may be different than your previous experience. My specialties include spirituality/faith in therapy, anxiety and depression in children and adults, young adult/college students' transitions, trauma, relationship issues, pre-marital, clergy/spouse/congregation difficulties in the ministry, life transitions, grief/loss, and compassion fatigue.
Over ten years of clinical expertise includes a combination of Solution-Focused, Narrative and Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy. My psychotherapy style emphasizes clients' strengths and resources to help meet challenges they face in life. I believe that all individuals, couples, and families are experts in their current hardship.
For individuals wanting Christian Counseling, I give advice, encouragement, and hope on biblical truth while relying on Christ to provide the power for change. If you are ready to make a lasting change in yourself, your relationship or family, call or e-mail to set up an appointment.
