About Me

I genuinely love people and am passionate about helping clients experience inner healing. My Christian faith serves as the backdrop for guiding people to more emotional wholeness and relational fulfillment, and by using Biblical principles, I am interested in helping clients replace distorted thinking with the truth. Through providing a compassionate, non-judgmental, confidential environment, I hope to foster a safe relationship where clients uncover hurts, discover strengths, and gain new perspectives in order to be empowered in their own lives.

When I’m not counseling people, I enjoy spending time with my husband of over 20 years and my two children. If I am not spending time with loved ones, I can be found with my nose in a book or working on a bit of writing.
