About Me

If you've decided to seek help and you’re entrusting a therapist with your most personal concerns, it is vitally important that the fit be right. Hope and relief come sooner when you find a therapist you feel comfortable with, someone you click with, and has the skills and experience you need.

I have been in the ministry of helping individuals, families and couples most of my adult life. I balance concerns while allowing the Holy Spirit to guide me in ministering to individuals of all ages, couples, and families. I strive to meet people where they are, help them understand their strengths, and aid in the empowerment of taking charge of and developing their lives. Since I believe God is working within me, I am humbled by His direction over my life to help others and am honored to meet and work with all individuals.

You will be encouraged to look at the story you tell about your life. Even if you were powerless in the past, it's possible to have some control in the present. You'll learn to respond thoughtfully rather than react self destructively to what life throws in your direction. I'll help you be kind with yourself as you learn new tools and overcome even long entrenched patterns. And when you're faced with tragedy and loss, having a compassionate witness along with you can be enormously helpful. I do this by modeling the methods of Christ, which is meeting the client where they are. I'll work collaboratively and interactively with you, using empathy, flexibility, insight and humor to craft a treatment plan tailored to your unique strengths and needs. If your family or a loved one is in need of therapy, counseling, skills training and/or educational support, I can assist you!
