I believe the bravest thing you can do is ask for help. I understand the risk one must take to be vulnerable with a therapist after having spent time as a client myself. It is my greatest honor to sit with my clients and listen to their stories.
I chose to enter this field several years ago after serving as a lay counselor and ministry leader for women and teens. My experience has led me to work with survivors of sexual abuse and domestic violence. I specialize in working with teens who are experiencing depression, anxiety and school avoidance. Women seeking support through life changes and past trauma are clients that I specialize in serving as well.
As a wife and mother of three teens, I have experienced the joy and heartache of life's detours and it would be my privilege to help you find hope again and look to the future with confidence. I believe the bravest thing you can do is ask for help.
My approach to counseling is person-centered. During sessions, I work to maintain an environment led by unconditional positive regard, empathy, and genuineness. I guide clients through the explorations of solutions already present within their lives in order to solve current challenges. When I'm not seeing clients, I serve as an Adjunct Professor at Judson University teaching counseling and psychology courses.
