< Back to Counselors We Trust
MA of Counseling, LPC
Life is a complex experience of pain and beauty and sometimes we need focused care to understand our experiences and heal from past wounds. I find it a privilege to walk alongside my clients through that process of discovery and healing. I became a licensed counselor in 2004 and worked in community mental health with adolescents and families for 9 years. In the Fall of 2011 I began working as a therapist at a faith-based community counseling center. Since that time, I have been able to pursue my passion – counseling women struggling with depression and anxiety, those wrestling with their personal and spiritual identities, those longing to make sense of their past and/or family of origin issues, and those wanting to heal from past trauma or current abuse (emotional, sexual, spiritual, physical and marital betrayal).
It takes courage to address the pain and struggles in your life and begin the process of healing, and I would be honored to be able to get to know you and accompany you in that process.
