Counseling Philosophy:

Sojourn means “stay for a time in a place or to live temporarily.” This is my view of our life on earth. It is a temporary stay and our time here can be difficult, confusing and painful at times. Sometimes we need help navigating. It is my desire to help you navigate your life and have the most abundant life possible here on earth.

I believe that we each have a unique story and set of experiences that make us who we are. What we believe about ourselves and the world around us impacts how we feel and respond to life. Processing daily life with someone helps us gain understanding and make sense of what we’re doing and how we are feeling. Understanding why we feel what we feel and why we do what we do can help alleviate anxiety and stress in our daily life.

I am a Christian.  My faith in Jesus is the foundation of my life and counseling practice. Although my faith is my foundation, I want to serve you in the best possible way regardless of your own faith.  My goal is to offer a safe and comfortable environment to everyone who walks in the door.
