As your faith-based therapist, I will provide a safe space for you to freely explore the thoughts, feelings, and circumstances that have led you to seek support. I have over 20 years of experience helping teens, adult individuals regain their inner strength, improve their relationships, let go of negative thoughts, and become high-level communicators. I offer professional counseling for a wide range of concerns including anxiety, depression, relationship issues, trauma and PTSD, grief and loss, women’s issues, OCD, bipolar disorder, and more. Together we will work to establish lasting coping skills and map out the best way for you to move forward.

You may be facing a crossroads right now that feels overwhelming, confusing, or isolating. By pursuing Christian counseling, you no longer have to walk down that path alone. With gentleness to address difficult topics with grace and humility to follow God’s guidance for each session, I have a genuine hope that you can accomplish your goals with the help of the Lord. With more than two decades of mental health experience, I offer faith-based therapy for teens, adult individuals including premarital counseling. I would be honored to witness the Lord’s work in your life through our sessions together.

My Goal as a Christian Counselor

My goal is to help you rediscover or uncover the best version of yourself – the version that you know in your heart God has called them to be. My hope is that through our sessions together, you will come away with a stronger relationship with God, increased self-confidence in problem solving, and a realistic set of tools and coping skills that you can use in all aspects of your life.

What I Offer in Christian Counseling

I offer a safe space for you to genuinely explore the thoughts and feelings that have brought you to counseling. In our sessions together, I will dedicate ample time to getting to know you and what you envision as your goal. Together we will work to identify strengths, realistic goals, and effective coping strategies, all while interweaving faith and God’s Word according to your comfort level.

My Approach to Christian Counseling

The Christian approach to counseling offers the unique opportunity to strengthen one’s relationship with God while gaining a deeper understanding of oneself. As Christians, our relationship with God is the foundation of how we move through life. Knowing Him through His Word truly serves as guidance during every chapter of our lives. My faith in God’s promises has made way for miracles in my own life. I am honored to be a vessel through whom God works to help others to strengthen or regain their faith.
