I work with premarital and married couples, and adults facing anxiety, depression, grief/loss, relationship issues, parenting challenges, life transitions and women's issues.
As a committed Christian, I can tell you that we are not exempt from trouble. Sometimes the troubles and losses we experience can cause anxiety, stress, depression, hopelessness and despair. If you experience these things, the wise and courageous thing to do is to ask for help. My counseling style is supportive and compassionate, yet challenging when necessary. If you choose to work with me, I will integrate our Christian faith and value system along with evidence-based treatment strategies to help you move from hopelessness toward freedom and healing.

Are you or a loved one struggling with stress, anxiety or depression? Are your coping skills helping or hurting you? In life, we all experience times when we struggle whether it be with guilt, shame, grief/loss, relationship issues or adjustment to change. With a little help, we can move through this and get to a brighter life. In the 20 years I have been a therapist I have helped many people with these issues. One of my favorite quotes is “If you always do what you always did, you will always get what you always got. If you want something different, do something different.” Counseling is the process that can help with this.

I offer a place of safety and support where you can freely process emotions and thoughts, come to a deeper understanding of yourself, and find ways to get yourself unstuck. Together, we look at self-defeating patterns and seek to understand their source. It is my goal to connect with clients regardless of where they may be in their experience. I partner with and hold space for clients of all ages, assisting them in finding their own internal strength and discovering practical solutions to challenges they face.

#1 belief is healing is not linear and that there is NO one size fits all therapy! I am extremely versed in traditional therapy that is data based, but believe that often practitioners miss the mark when it comes to looking at the client as whole/ not just numbers. My approach is holistic compassionate care, that offers clients a flexible way to heal and discover new nuggets of truth, in both traditional therapy and alternative ones. I have a particular passion for empowering woman in seeking their purpose and worth. I also have a deep love for working with children/teens that have difficulty navigating through the world/emotions.

Today's society brings many challenges to children, adolescents and their families. While some face setbacks at home, others might struggle with school issues or have difficulties in social situations casting a shadow over childhood. Although parenting and family life can be the most rewarding experience, they are also complex tasks with ever changing challenges, especially if the family deals with, for example, trauma, anxiety, ADHD, grief, blending families, school/ peer problems.
