I am so very grateful you are here. Why? because you matter! Truly you do. How do I know this? Because after years of working with people from many different backgrounds and hearing their stories. I have become more convinced than ever that each human being is unique, beautiful, and full of possibilities. It is for this reason; I am confident of your value! Growing up, we dream of the perfect life. Each story plays a little differently in our ideal world, but there is one common factor, life doesn't go exactly as planned. Somehow on the journey to becoming who we were meant to be, we get lost. Sometimes it's a tragedy blocking our path like a boulder that won't move or at times we merely misplace the GPS and find ourselves in a place we never intended to go. Whatever the cause, when we face these setbacks our thinking often begins to take a negative spiral, causing self-doubt and fear to rise up. Pretty soon our own limiting beliefs keep us from dreaming, let alone achieving.
The exciting news is that the science of well-being presents another option. We learn that the spiral goes both ways, and while our brains have a bias towards the negative, we don't always have to follow it. By exercising a few cognitive skills we can thrive like never before and start spiraling up rather than down. I rejoice in the opportunity to come alongside you to help you find clarity in life and discover all the possibilities it offers. I believe every setback has drawn you closer to your ideal future, and you have what it takes to get there.
My background in counseling and the ordained chaplaincy uniquely qualifies me to help people and relationships transform. I use evidence-based interventions rooted in the latest research in psychology and neuroscience to help you step fully into who you were meant to be! Good science reflects God's Glory, and you get to see the fruits of this in your life. I specialize in marriage, family, grief recovery, post-traumatic growth, and resilience training.
