It’s always been a privilege for me to hear others’ stories and have them trust me with the vulnerable parts of themselves. My clients tend to appreciate my warm, down-to-earth approach that is both affirming and non-judgmental. Until we get to heaven, we will continue to be affected by life in a broken, sin-stained world, and it can be so helpful to have someone to walk with you through those difficulties.
I grew up in an evangelical Christian home and as an adolescent and young adult, I came to embrace the Christian faith as my own. I have seen God work through counseling to bring about tremendous change in hearts and lives, and I am honored to support that kind of change in those I work with. I work well with individuals with depression, anxiety, self-harm, trauma, anger, and relationship issues.
I have a Master's degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Denver Seminary, and I feel that my training has equipped me well to integrate my faith perspective into counseling. I am also happy to answer any questions you may have about my personal theology and how that impacts my work as a counselor.
I’d love to connect with you and support you in your journey!
