Hope and Healing Family Counseling is committed to helping all people, from all walks and stages of life, find hope and healing. I provide counseling from a Christian perspective and love helping others incorporate their faith into their healing journey. I do this with confidentiality, professionalism and compassion. Non-Christians and non-religious clients also feel safe, welcome and accepted. I do not seek to impose my beliefs upon others, but I do recognize that my beliefs impact and shape my work with clients. Ultimately, it is my goal to see clients living out balanced and healthy lives — emotionally, spiritually and physically.
Life can be messy and hard. It can also be beautiful, redemptive, and healing. I believe that counseling can be a vital part of our personal growth in our life journey in this process of reflection, healing, and growth. One of my favorite Scriptures is found in Isaiah 61:3, “to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes.” I believe that in our ashes and our pain, God can redeem and create something beautiful.
I graduated from Grace College and Theological Seminary with a MA in Counseling. I’ve been a licensed counselor since 2008. I’ve worked with all ages in a wide range of settings. I’m passionate about helping people see that there is hope. I use evidence based practices in my office to help people reach their goals. My desire is to create a safe environment for you to have the space to heal. I believe our past experiences do not define us, but they do have an effect on how we think, feel, and behave.
When not in the office, I can be found with my husband and son. I love to spend time fishing or reading a good book. I’m thankful for the life God has blessed me with.
