My Approach to Helping

There are times when the weight of our troubles is too much for us to carry alone. Life’s challenges and losses can sometimes lead to anxiety, stress, depression, hopelessness and even despair. If you are experiencing these things, the wise and courageous thing to do is ask for help. In our work together, I will integrate our Christian faith and value system along with evidence-based treatment strategies to help you move from hopelessness toward freedom and healing.
