Having overcome my own struggle with trauma and anxiety, 

my heart is tied closely to the work I do.  I listen deeply and thoughtfully, working with you to gain a deeper understanding of your thoughts, feelings and experiences.  Together we build a bridge that leads to healing and change.


My Personal Style... I offer a caring, safe place where you can openly share about what is troubling you and find unconditional acceptance and support. This may include exploring common patterns, providing feedback, teaching problem-solving strategies, practicing new skills, or suggesting helpful resources.  


I believe problems and symptoms are connected with the physical, mental, social, emotional and spiritual aspects of who we are.  Having said that, we only work on the areas you feel ready to work on. 


I hope you will find my approach kind, compassionate and:  

  • Holistic.  I am interested in all aspects of you (physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual) and how each is connected to the problem and solution.  
  • Spiritual.  I offer spiritual support from a Christian perspective.
  • Integrative. I draw from a variety of theories and have a variety of approaches to offer. 
  • Collaborative. I provide a variety of options and suggestions based on your current need and goals, and you decide what style of therapy you feel most comfortable with.  Better yet, offer your own ideas and let's see what we can build together!
  • Trauma Informed.  I am able to view all approaches from a trauma perspective.
