Life is sometimes difficult. If you realize that you are hurting and life is just not the way you want it to be, it would be my pleasure to help you find renewed hope in the face of life's challenges. Situations such as anxiety, panic, trauma, depression, challenges with relationships and tough memories related to childhood abuse can be worked through. These--and many more concerns--are all good reasons to begin a journey toward a more meaningful and purposeful life. I will offer you empathy, creativity and humor throughout the process.
I specialize in assisting with trauma, abuse, anxiety and panic disorders and have completed doctoral work in the area of spirituality and abuse recovery. I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional. I am also trained to utilize Prepare/Enrich--an assessment tool useful for premarital and marital counseling.
I am happy to incorporate Christian spirituality into your treatment if that is useful for you, and will be careful to listen to your understanding of faith. I've been trained in spiritual formation and will help you to look at spiritual issues as they concern your emotional health.
