Establishing a collaborative working relationship with clients to help them achieve their therapeutic goals in a safe non judgmental atmosphere is my number one priority. Assisting my clients to find their own path and achieve post traumatic growth is not only possible but also rewarding. My special interests include domestic violence, betrayal trauma, grief and loss, and life transitions due to aging, divorce, empty nests, reentry to college or the workforce.

Does the Past keep interfering with your Present? We’d all love to believe that what happened “back then” doesn’t have to affect us in the “here & now.” But trauma, a difficult childhood, deep loss—they all leave a mark. Painful experiences change how we feel about ourselves, our relationships, and how we view the world. We want to move on but we're stuck. No matter how hard we try to push the pain back or down or away... it leaks back in and we find ourselves living in the same old pain with the same old problems: Stuck. Exhausted. Frustrated.
I am passionate about helping people find well-being despite the difficulties and trials life may throw at them. I believe this goal is best accomplished through a collaborative, strengths-based approach, using a systemic lens, and incorporating evidence-based approaches that show positive outcomes. I also welcome the opportunity to explore your spiritual strengths as a Christian therapist. My experience has allowed me the opportunity to work with people experiencing depression, anxiety, adoption issues, OCD, chronic illness, PTSD/complex trauma, ASD, ADHD, grief/loss and parenting/marital issues.
