I whole-heartedly believe in taking a wellness/wholeness approach – healing of the mind, body, and soul. I am committed to providing you with a safe space to unburden your heart, explore the root of your pain and struggle, support you through your healing process, and provide tools to help you create the future you deserve.
Choosing to work toward a healthier life and a healthier you is an act of self-care you should be proud of! I understand seeking support typically happens when our problems feel larger than what we believe we can handle on our own. You are not alone! I promise to listen intently and give you the space, understanding, empathy, and acceptance you need.
My passion is working with women who have experienced long-term relationship difficulties and/or trauma and are currently experiencing one or more of the following: Emotional and relational difficulties, self-esteem/self-worth/identity struggles, perfectionist tendencies, sexual intimacy issues, codependency, dealing with chronic/autoimmune/undiagnosed illness, LGBTQ+ struggles, etc.
You are important and unique, so together we will create a customized plan which will utilize both cognitive (CBT, EFT, PCT, etc.) and expressive therapies (Art Therapy, Music Therapy, Sandtray Therapy, etc.) in a way that best speaks to you and your needs. Your plan may include exploring your past and family dynamics, wellness and self-care practices, relationship and decision patterns, etc. My goal is to help you find the true you, arm you with the tools you need to confront life’s challenges, and work toward finding wholeness.
My life is filled with creativity and the love and chaos of a big family with plenty of personality. My husband and I have a blended family which includes seven children (plus two extras), three grandbabies, two dogs, and a cat. I love serving our church and community, painting, drawing, reading, hiking, dancing, laughing, warm chocolate chip cookies, the color pink, and so much more! In December of 2021, I will graduate from Indiana Wesleyan University with a master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, specializing in Expressive Arts Therapies.
