Overview

I provide counseling services for clients who are seeking a professional therapist who recognizes God's role in the healing process.

I want it to be evident to my clients that I am a Christian who counsels with her Bible Open!

My goal is to always help my clients discover the secrets of scripture written plainly for our instruction. When answers are lifted off the pages of God's love letter, it is energizingly freeing! The Bible is enough. Although I have been trained at a Master's Level by a University program and pursued a clinical license through the states of Illinois and Missouri, I have learned that the Bible is the ultimate source for counseling through the toughest of times. Allow me to assist you in discovering God's instruction on how to positively restructure patterns of cognitive distortions and encourage behavior change so that you can experience peace of mind and joy.

“The Word of God is sufficiently useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right.” ~ 2 Tim. 3:16.

I am a Solution Focused Therapist. If you choose to proceed in therapy with me, I vow not to misuse your time in reaching set goals. Solution-focused counseling is a goal-focused therapeutic approach that helps clients focus on answers rather than problems.

Therapy with me will be more than talking things out.

Our therapeutic relationship will examine the different avenues you may need to explore or change to ease your life's pain, fear, or indecision. You will play a big part in the healing process.

I will provide guidance, support, and counsel based on Cognitive-Behavioral, Rational Emotive, Solution Focused, and Mindfulness therapy approaches while utilizing Biblical resources in the therapeutic sessions. The principles and teachings of the Bible provide immense insight into human nature, emotions, relationships, and personal struggles. Integrating biblical wisdom, values, and theology into the counseling process, the primary goal will be to help you address emotional, relational, and spiritual challenges while encouraging personal growth and a deeper relationship with God.
