Whether sorting out a difficult relationship, parenting challenges, breaking the grip of addiction and mental illness, recovering from trauma or childhood abuse, or seeking support and encouragement, I am here to assist you. Having dealt with the effects of childhood abuse, and my own addictions, I understand what you may be facing, but together we can find the answers. As an artist, when appropriate, I use art, poetry, narrative, and dreams to help identify issues, and explore options for change.
As a counselor, I see my role as a listener and educator, offering wisdom from the Scriptures and insight from my personal experience. Allowing the Holy Spirit to be our guide in the session, I help you to explore, set goals, and bring needed change to your life.
Using a cognitive behavioral / educational style to facilitate emotional and behavioral changes one desires, I work with you to help you meet your counseling goals. I am experienced in abuse and addictions, anxiety, stress related disorders, PTSD, and depression. I have taught classes in parenting, abuse and addiction, and recovery life skills.
