One of the bravest choices a person can make is to come to counseling. What I hope is that the time together is where you will feel listened to, feel safe, and know you are not along as we explore why you have come.I help with those who are stuck in patterns of life that are discouraging. Anxiety and depression, trauma, abuse, marriage counseling and exploring the impact of transition are also a part of my work. One of my passions is to teach how vulnerability and courage are tied into living whole-heartedly.My EMDR training is helpful with various areas of trauma. As a Certified Daring Way(tm) Facilitator, this gives me opportunity, either in the counseling room or in groups, to lead others in knowing how shame works in our story. A unique part of my life was working in a non-profit Christian work, overseas.
