My educational background includes a Master of Divinity in Clinical Pastoral Counseling from Ashland Theological Seminary in Ashland, Ohio and an undergraduate degree from Indiana University. I have over 10 years of experience working with individuals and couples suffering from mood disorders (e.g. anxiety and depression), grief, and issues stemming from trauma, abuse, neglect, poor communication, etc. I use a variety of modalities including cognitive behavioral therapy, grief counseling and formational (heart) prayer and spiritual direction. I am a mature Christian woman. My skill set rests on a solid foundation of life experience and a close walk with Jesus.
It is my belief that all emotional, mental, and spiritual disorder is rooted in self-hatred. These negative perceptions are the result of lies we have learned to believe through life experience. By inviting Jesus into the place where the lie took root, you can encounter Jesus and the Truth that will bring true healing and lasting peace. This is accomplished through Christian inner healing and Theophostic prayer. My mission is to provide encouragement, support and prayer to help you gain healing, understanding, and practical tools to live a fuller, more joyful life in healthy relationship with God and others.
Over the years I have developed three adages for successful living (relationship with Jesus assumed): 1)be nice, 2) think happy thoughts and 3) mind your own business. In a grace-filled, nonthreatening environment, I can help you explore how you’re doing these well and where you may need improvement.
I am a native of downstate Illinois. I have two married adult children and two granddaughters. I love walking in nature, gardening, art, sewing and raspberry ice cream with dark chocolate chips.
