If you are experiencing hurt, pain, sadness, confusion or just feel that you have somehow lost yourself in this life, I invite you to recover your heart and begin to grow in your capacity to love God, yourself, and others.
We have all experienced hurt and pain in this life. Unfortunately, this is the result of a broken and fallen world. And yet your struggles can often be the most incredible places of growth and healing when you are courageous enough to let the pain and darkness teach you about yourself and about God.
My greatest joy in this work is being able to join you as you face the hurt and pain in your life in order to discover your truest self.
Philosophy and Approach
When I sit with a client for the first time, I have an incredible respect for their courage to ask for help and feel very honored that they would begin to trust me with some of the deepest and most vulnerable parts of their lives. I am also aware that they have probably tried everything that they can think of to ease or lessen their pain and my desire is to invite them to go to the roots of their hurt rather than simply identifying hurtful behaviors in their lives. I believe this process requires me, my client, and the Holy Spirit to show up each session because this is the work of the soul.
Areas of Specialization
I work with those who struggle with any kind of issue in their personal relationships including marriage, parenting, abuse, neglect, anxiety, depression, and trauma. Many times our past hurts often show up in our present day relationships. Together we can look to the past to help heal our present relationships.
