It was through my own life experiences and challenges that I learned the value of leaning into others for support and the benefit of working toward growing into my best self.
Regardless of where life has taken us, I believe that we can embrace our story to not only grow in resiliency, but to also be used for good.
Besides counseling, my other passions include spending quality time with my family, baking all the sweets, and hiking with my three dogs.
My counseling perspective:
Whether you feel stuck at a crossroads or could just benefit from talking to an unbiased person, I am here to meet you at any place you may be at in your journey. My perspective of counseling is that you are the expert in your own life and that I am here to walk alongside you toward healing and growth.
I understand that starting counseling can be an intimidating process, so I aim to create a non-judgmental environment that promotes comfort and safety. My desire is for you to feel heard and valued, and that you will feel more empowered and hopeful than before.
My educational background consists of a B. S. degree from Texas Tech University in Human Sciences with concentrations in Psychology, Human Development & Family Studies, and Addiction & Recovery. In addition to my Bachelor’s degree, I obtained a Masters of Arts Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Denver Seminary. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Candidate in the state of Colorado. I am also a National Board Certified Counselor (NCC). I am certified in Prepare & Enrich Counseling, trained in Emotionally Focused Counseling (EFT) and am a member of the American Counseling Association.
General Counseling areas:
Grief & Loss
Faith Based Counseling:
I believe that God is the ultimate Healer, and I am able to utilize a faith-based perspective in counseling if desired. The amount of faith in a session is completely up to you.
I have great respect for all people and will gladly work with clients regardless of faith preference or perspective.
As women, we are often made to feel that we are only “good enough” if we measure up to certain societal standards. We are taught that our physical appearance, our titles, and number of likes determine our self-worth.
The pressure of these unrealistic expectations can make us feel like we must carry the weight of the world on our shoulders, leaving us overwhelmed and often questioning our value.
I strongly believe that regardless of any standard, decision, success or failure we’ve endured, every person is worthy and beyond good enough. I have a deep passion for helping women remember this or discover this truth for the first time.
If this sounds like something you can relate to, if you feel depleted from life’s demands, or you could just benefit from a listening ear, I would be honored to walk alongside you.
