I am a Mental Health Counselor and Drama Therapist dedicating to supporting adults through Christian counseling.

Life circumstances can be unpredictable and I believe we are not meant to walk through difficult times alone. My goal is to come alongside people as a support in moments of grief, trauma, or transitions. As a clinician, I use a collaborative, creative, trauma- informed approach. My work engages the mind and body for holistic care in order to address both difficult, painful thoughts as well as the physical experiences we carry around in our bodies. We will incorporate attachment theory, polyvagal theory, the creative arts therapies and cognitive behavioral therapy. I believe people begin to heal when they feel heard and seen.
My goal is to meet people where they are and partner with them in their journey to support them in fulfilling their calling and meeting their goals. As a Christian counselor, my approach is both biblical and clinical. Through counseling we work through how our mind and body respond to sin and its effects, with God’s word as the foundation always.
Using Drama Therapy, I use tools like play, story and metaphor to explore issues and root causes. With the understanding that each of us plays multiple roles in our lives, I aim to help clients expand the roles they play in order to navigate the world with more flexibility and creativity.
