My style is warm, yet direct…I will challenge you to be real and grow~

My Background

With an MBA from the University of Illinois, an MA in Counseling from The Townsend Institute at Concordia University Irvine, and extensive experience with spirituality, I have a unique perspective in relating to issues that are personal, relational, faith-based, or business related.

My Approach

My approach is based on your needs and goals. It is integrative and holistic - connecting body, soul, and spirit brings you into a place of wholeness. I work experientially for our sessions to feel safe, supportive, and connected. Together we can face the painful places in your life where you can find emotional repair, healing from painful memories, awareness of your patterns, and healing in your relationships. As you move towards wholeness, we will focus on identifying your blind spots and shifting your mindset as you learn to take good care of yourself.

My Passion

My passion is to challenge people to grow, create healthy relationships, and see families thrive! Pain can keep us stuck until we understand the gift it presents. When you begin to see your pain - the pain you have endured ~ as opportunities to grow ~ you are positioned to honor those experiences, move through them, and intentionally and authentically create the life you want and deserve.

My Heart

When I am not engaging with clients, you will find me walking, boating, training my puppy (who often joins me in the therapy room), watching movies with my family, or enjoying a good book!

Every person must choose how much truth he can stand.
