I find it profoundly fulfilling to work in a Christian context with couples and individuals in the field of therapy - and in the ministry of inner healing. It's a privilege to help people finish conversations in a way that builds bonds. I look forward to facilitating moments of increased awareness, and I honor the bravery it takes to grow and make healing changes in life. We will work collaboratively to make effective changes and find places in your life that have been a sticking point - and my hope is that you will feel more at home in your life and better able to receive God's love.
As your counselor, I will listen to your situation with unconditional positive regard and empathy. Together we will discuss the reasons you’ve sought counseling and establish a realistic plan for you to enjoy lasting healing and hope. Whether you’re dealing with anxiety, depression, sexual abuse or trauma, grief, or some other concern, I believe counseling can be a wonderful tool to help you move forward to find the growth and positive changes you desire.

I’m a strong believer in limitless possibility for redemption through Christ. I’m a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Clinical Supervisor, experienced in bilingual counseling, helping people through anxiety and depression, women’s issues, and trauma. I know what it’s like to live through dark, seemingly hopeless times. Everything God brings you through is shaping who you are meant to be. I’m honored to help you uncover ways to learn from your past and find healing and growth as you work towards building a new, Christ-filled future.
People are my calling. My job is to help people like you heal their lives, relationships, and families. With over two decades of experience helping tens of thousands of individuals, couples, and families, I offer empathy, a listening ear, and a healthy dose of wisdom. I am straightforward and often use humor in my practice. I believe it’s so important to be relaxed in this work. I work quickly and don’t waste time getting down to the business of healing people of all ages, backgrounds, genders, relationships, and cultures.
As a Master’s level mental health counselor, I help people find recovery from abuse, broken relationships, anxiety, depression, identity and purpose concerns, anger issues, sexual brokenness, and spiritual battles. Faith is the foundation on which I build my personal life and my Christian counseling practice. I believe that it’s never too late for you to make good choices and positive change for your life. Christian counseling will give you support and guidance as you work towards healing emotionally, spiritually, and physically, while solidifying your own connection and relationship with God.
I believe that relationships are the most important aspect of our lives, especially our connection with Christ. As a Christian counselor, my hope is to incorporate your relationship with Christ in the healing process, so you can experience wholeness and healing for all areas of your life. If you’re struggling with things that are keeping you from living fully, I’m here to meet you where you are and work with you and the Lord to find lasting, holistic solutions that fit your individual needs.

As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and experienced Christian Conflict and Relationship Coach, it is my privilege to help individuals, couples, and families work through the challenges and struggles that they face in life.

Life should be more than just pain and trials. Though they can serve a purpose, I believe that God has much more in store for you. My hope is to help you discover the wonderful joys and strength that lie beneath the pain and trauma you might be facing. Through Christ, we can conquer fear and find freedom, healing, and purpose. Whatever challenges you face, I offer you a safe place for you to discover all that God can do for your life.
I believe the family unit is one of the most important aspects of our society. If family bonds can be strengthened, many other issues in this world will resolve themselves. As a Licensed Marriage and Family Associate, I seek to work with families to identify needs and trigger points and provide healthy solutions grounded in faith. Counseling sessions with my clients may address the union between husband and wife, parent to child relationships, past family experiences, and other interpersonal dynamics. If you feel as if you’re stuck in an unhelpful cycle, I’ll seek to help you to find peace.
As a counselor, I seek to be sensitive to my clients’ physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual condition during any given session, following their lead to determine which direction we’ll go with our conversation. I try not to push beyond their capacity, but rather gently guide and point things out as we travel together on the path toward healing and well-being. I provide a welcoming, judgment-free zone in which clients can share their burdens and feel heard and understood. I’d love to chat with you about how you can write a new chapter in your story.
I’ve been in counseling for nearly three decades. While I welcome people with any therapy-related concern, I specialize in helping individuals overcome depression, anxiety, various addictions, and sexual abuse. I’m well aware of the brokenness that exists in each of us, sometimes to the point where it feels as if all hope is lost. One thing I love most about my job is the privilege of seeing Jesus Christ perform remarkable transformation and healing in the lives of my clients. I’ve seen Him do it countless times – and He can do it for you, too.
Deciding to seek out a counselor can be difficult. Admitting you have an issue you can’t conquer on your own can be unbelievably humbling. We were not made to live in isolation, to figure everything out, or to get through all of life’s challenges alone. As one who has encountered storms in life, I can tell you that no matter how strong the wind and the waves may be, you can weather and overcome them through Jesus Christ. Combining my biblical and mental health training with my 23 years of experience in the field, I would be honored to come alongside you to help you find healing and restoration.
