I believe that growth can come from adversity, and no one escapes the difficulties and trials that occur in 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 alongside you and provide the encouragement, support and clinical expertise you need to 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 closer to God and to others.
I have worked over the past 35 years, as both a social worker and clinical counselor in a variety of settings and population groups. This has included inpatient, residential, and outpatient counseling experiences with children through older adults. 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 the EMDR International Association.
