As a certified Christian coach, my passion is to help you work through your struggles and discover your purpose. Please note: Coaching is not the same as mental health counseling. I am not a health care provider or licensed counselor, but I am a Board Certified Christian Mental Health Coach (BCCMHC), Professional Recovery Coach (CPRC), and Life Coach (CPC). I have found that purpose and identity go hand in hand. If you are unsure of your purpose, it might be that you are unsure of the gifts, beliefs, and emotions that make up who you are. Your identity is not based on what people do or say to you, but in how you respond to them.
Life on this earth is hard. At times it can seem unbearable. As Jesus said, “In this life you will have trouble. But take heart, for I have overcome the world” (John 16:33). Whether it is depression, anxiety, addictions, past traumas, loss, relationship difficulties, or personality patterns, we often need help finding that “overcoming” part that Jesus promised. I spent nearly 40 years growing in my ability to help people as a teacher, coach, home group leader, and youth pastor. Now, as a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, I will come alongside and walk with you in your journey to break old patterns and experience transformation.
I see it as an incredible honor to join you in your journey, an honor that I will not take for granted. While I will offer my professional knowledge, skills, and training to guide your treatment, I also believe that you are a wellspring of knowledge and have life experiences, personal preferences, and unique strengths that hold the key to any therapeutic course’s success. I am excited to meet with you, to get to know you, and to collaborate with you to address your psychological needs and help you live fully into God’s calling for your life.
I understand that even considering counseling takes a measure of courage and vulnerability. That is a great place to begin. As your counselor, I will listen intently, seek to understand you and your concerns, and work to build on your strengths to move in a positive direction. I work with teen and adult individuals, couples, and families dealing with a variety of issues and challenges including anxiety, depression, relationship issues, grief, concerns related to aging, and much more. I would consider it a great privilege to serve as your counselor.
As your counselor, I will help you identify and nurture your God-given talents, interests, and strengths. I will also equip you to discover and utilize strategies to manage and alleviate distressing symptoms that may be negatively impacting your life. I have training and professional experience treating individuals with a wide range of symptoms, including anxiety, depression, trauma, obsessive-compulsive behaviors, relationship issues, sleep disturbances, suicidal thoughts and actions, and more. I use a tailored, collaborative, and holistic approach to counseling specifically designed to address your unique needs and personal goals, and tap into the enormous well of potential tucked inside your DNA.
I specialize in helping teens and adult individuals and couples find healing and move toward recovery from a variety of mental health issues including trauma, depression, anxiety, anger issues, and challenges with grief and loss, as well as conflict in relationships. Reaching out for help when you're struggling is one of the bravest things you can do, and the first step in finding true healing. Life is full of surprises which can sometimes seem impossible to overcome. However, with God’s help, proper guidance, and some hard work, the road ahead can look much brighter.
As your counselor, I bring a great amount of excitement and hope about what Christ can do in your life. Whether you’re experiencing heartache, abuse, confusion, substance abuse issues, divorce, family or relationship issues, or other concerns, I will empathize with you and walk with you toward the light. My desire is for you to gain a better understanding of who you were created to be and how you can use your unique set of strengths and gifts to overcome your challenges with God’s help. I look forward to joining you in the journey of healing and discovery.
As your counselor, I offer empathy and compassion for whatever situation you may be going through. Together with God’s help and proven therapeutic techniques, we can address the effects of trauma, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, abandonment, or other concerns. I have extensive experience working with children, youth, and families. Whether you’re looking for counseling for children, teens, or adult individuals or couples, I would be honored to be part of your journey toward spiritual and mental health.
