I believe we are all hurting at some time or another, all have a story which is unique to us, are made to be in community with one another and not go through things alone. I believe and have experienced that we have difficult chapters and seasons to walk through and strive to provide value and support in helping you do so. I don't presume to have all the answers, no one does, just a listening ear and heart and desire to help. I approach counseling largely from a systems perspective working with each client to understand them as part of their world in which they live and how they see themselves in it.
Faith is a very important foundation for me personally. I also know that everyone is on their own journey with whatever that may look like for them. I am very passionate about meeting clients where they are at and honoring their beliefs and values. When it is appropriate to my clients to incorporate faith in a therapeutic way I am here to bring that into session as well.
My practice is focused on helping couples, individuals and families heal issues, grow and build foundations and communication, all toward improving their live, building the life they want and enjoying the relationships they deserve. I enjoy serving couples, single adults, men, women and adolescent males. I especially enjoy working on relationships and believe they and the emotions that go with them are the foundation of who we were meant to be. We were created for connection. I deeply enjoy helping couples build solid marriage foundations and enriching their marriage.
