Experiences change us.
Some experiences wound us, while others help us heal. With authenticity, empathy, and challenge, I join with clients to make therapy a space where healing experiences can take place. In therapy we will work together to identify dysfunctional patterns of relating and create new, healthier ones that are congruent with the person you want to be.
I am a trauma-informed clinician who approaches client issues systemically and experientially. This means I seek to understand and treat the effects traumatic experiences on client functioning while also understanding clients within the context of their larger family system. I am also trained in EMDR.
Most couples who enter my office are working through affair recovery, difficulty in conflict resolution, communication struggles, and intimacy concerns. My work with individuals focuses on trauma recovery, complex trauma and abuse, codependency, spouses of sex addicts, grief, and sexual/relational concerns.
I believe deeply in my client’s capacity to grow and heal. It is an honor to watch God’s redemptive work unfold in the midst of broken stories.
I hold a master of arts in Marriage and Family Therapy from Richmont Graduate University with a specialization in trauma counseling. I work under the direction and supervision of Dr. Michael Sytsma PhD, LPC, CST, CASAS, CPCS.
I am grateful to share the ups and downs of life with my husband Kevin.
