STORY AND LOVING
IS THE BRAVEST
THING WE WILL EVER DO.
Everyone struggles from time to time. I’ll bet you’re no stranger to hard things. You’re not afraid of a challenge. As a matter of fact, you may have grown and overcome obstacles. You even know that you aren’t perfect; certainly not invincible.
But still, you’re struggling, frustrated, emotional or stuck. There may even be a voice inside that says: You should be able to figure this out. You should know what to do. You should be handling this better.
Ready for the good news? I’ve been there, and so have many people like you. Chances are, you’ve never done THIS particular challenge before. So why do you expect yourself to just KNOW what to do and DO it?
If you can relate, its time for fresh perspective. As an experienced nurse and insightful counselor, (and one who is no stranger to struggle), I understand how life can become overwhelming. My desire is to provide a safe, objective and trusting relationship that helps you figure out what you just can’t see.
you're not alone
Counseling offers support and guidance to help navigate the storm when life bombards us. All of our life experiences play a part in how we handle challenges. Its hard to cope with the fear of uncertainty, especially when we feel stuck.
Along with my formal and clinical training, I bring a life full of experiences. I view myself as a fellow companion on the journey to health in body, mind and spirit. I would love to help you clarify why you’re struggling, and help you find the courage and bravery to overcome.

Therapy is both thought provoking and interactive as we uncover practical methods for change. My approach is to focus on strengths, and treatment is tailored to your specific needs, situations, relationship dynamics and comfort level. I primarily utilize cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), which simply put, focuses on what we think and how it influences our feelings and behaviors. The good news is that our brain can be trained to believe what we tell it to; sometimes we just need help getting that process started.
At conferences, retreats and training events, I am available to speak on a variety of personal and public health issues. Speaking topics range from personality types to self-care and wellness, spiritual gifts, diabetes education, and more.
