My passion is working with teens, adults, couples and families who are struggling with past and present wounding that may have created feelings of anger, anxiety, fear, depression, low self-esteem and other negative emotions. My desire is to provide a safe and nonjudgemental place for exploring what is happening below the surface which leads to healing. My goal is to help people to overcome their struggles and thrive personally and relationally.
My approach to real-life struggles is with empathy and compassion along with a reflective listening style which allows your feelings to be heard, understood and validated so we can get to the root cause of the issue to begin the healing process. I have over 15 years of experience working with teens, parents and individuals in different capacities of coaching and counseling.
I am trained as a Certified Life Coach as well as in two research based marital assessment programs: Prepare-Enrich and SYMBIS, which are intended to help couples identify growth areas as well as to see unique strengths of their relationship.
As a counselor, I utilize positive behavioral modeling, biblical Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and pastoral counseling which is a unique way of counseling as I focus on healing the whole person: body, soul, and spirit, which provides an abiding change.
The storms of life can feel overwhelming and threaten to knock you off course and drag you down. The good news is you don’t have to walk alone. I will come alongside you and demonstrate God’s gracious pursuit of you, by listening to your heart, understanding your struggle and encouraging you through God’s Word to begin the healing process.
