“You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending.” - C.S. Lewis
I work with children, teens and adults. As a counselor, I want to provide a safe and non-judgmental environment where you feel heard and understood while seeking help and support. I believe it is extremely important to build trust with every client by creating a calm, safe and trusting environment. I know the courage and humility it takes to reach out for help. I am passionate about helping those who are hurting find healing and freedom. I also meet my clients where they are spiritually, and we work together from that starting point. I would be truly honored to walk alongside you on your journey toward healing and overall improved wellness.
I have specialized training in trauma, grief, addictions, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT). I also enjoy providing counseling to parents of struggling teens. Lastly, I have a a passion for helping children, teens and young adults overcome trauma, anxiety, grief and loss, life changes, identity issues, and depression.
I am a Licensed Master Social Worker. My approach to therapy is trauma-informed, strengths-based, and holistic. My desire is to use my experience, skills, specialized training, and education to help you experience the abundant life for which you were created.
My experience founding and running Freestyle Ministries has given me a special interest in working with women in ministry/leadership who are struggling with perfectionism, burnout, or compassion fatigue.
I have been happily married since 2006 and have a son and a young adult step-daughter. In my free time I enjoy taking my son to the skate park, painting, writing, nature walks, listening to music, or reading a good book.
