Christian Counseling

Christian Counseling is a blending of proven psychological techniques with the truth of God’s word and the leading of the Holy Spirit. Healing is a matter not only of our souls but spirits. So, it is important to take a holistic approach. If your faith is important to you, it is important it plays a part in your healing.

Not a Christian

I will not impose my views on you. I see issues objectively and have experience working with individuals from a variety of beliefs and life circumstances. Your beliefs will be respected, and you will be treated with courtesy, kindness and professionalism.

About Me

Even if we live to be one hundred years life is too short to spend it any way but fully engaged. We all experience seasons in our lives when we feel overwhelmed, lonely, empty or scared. I believe you have what it takes to live the life you desire, but no one’s journey is solitary we all need help. It is my privilege to come alone side you on your journey to make the changes you desire to live a free full life.

I have over fifteen years of experience working with a wide range of clients and issues such as survivors of trauma, childhood abuse recovery, depression, postpartum depression, anxiety, domestic violence, women’s issues, PTSD, life transitions, self-esteem issues and more.
