Philosophy of Counseling

I believe that growth can come from adversity, and no one escapes the difficulties and trials that occur at different times in our lives. I believe it is a sign of strength to ask for help, and I would be honored to be invited to walk along side you and provide the encouragement, support, and clinical expertise you need to work through and overcome your difficulties. I especially enjoy helping others who allow God to use their adversities to help them become the person God created them to be as they grow closer to God and to others.

Professional Experience and Community Involvement

I have worked over the past 30 years, as both a social worker and clinical counselor in a variety of settings and various population groups. This has included both inpatient and outpatient counseling experiences: with teens in residential placement, foster care and adoption services, individual, marital and family counseling as well as intensive home-based counseling. I have specialized training and experience in helping individuals with depression, anxiety and trauma.
I am actively involved with my church's mission board and I have been on several short-term mission trips to developing countries. I love meeting people from different cultures, learning about their various traditions and perspectives, and seeing how God is working in their lives. I am a member of the American Counseling Association and I also volunteer as a hostess at the Ashland Christian Health Center.
