About My Clients

I work best with spiritually motivated clients that may have a difficult time reconciling their mental illness in the presence of their faith. My heart is with those who struggle in this broken world and need a place to turn which supports them in developing their relationship with Christ, alongside processing deep rooted wounds of their life circumstances. I welcome all parts of you, even the parts that you hide from the rest of the world.

My Background and Approach

I am gentle yet challenging, deeply compassionate, creative, open, and attuned to your needs. Developing comfort, safety and depth of connection are my priorities because we heal when we feel safe to be unapologetically ourselves. I value authenticity and kindness which largely informs my approach. I practice through the truth and authority of scripture and merge Christian spirituality with my extensive psychological training and experience. I see the wholeness of who you are through mind, body and spirit and believe that mental health is a spiritual endeavor. I am not a passive therapist that just sits back and listens. I'm in this work with you, I will challenge you to grow, I will teach you about sound theology, your mind, spirit and nervous system, and I will help you to genuinely believe and to grow in your faith which has a profound supernatural ability to transform your heart.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I remember completing my graduate training in traditional secular psychology and thinking "that's it??"...this sent me on quest to understand healing on a deeper level. What I found is that healing has to go deeper than mere human "techniques", skills, and flesh-based thinking. We have to incorporate truth which guides us to understand our humanity, our eternal nature, and how our creator intended for us to live and endure this life. When Biblical wisdom is applied effectively with psychological foundations we have a clear roadmap to what I call a Spirit-Lead Life which addresses all of your being, flesh and spirit. My foundation of therapy is rooted in the understanding that healing is mostly a spiritual path. I work best with those who are spiritual seekers and wanting to use their belief system in Christ as a major tool in their treatment.
