“Promoting a healthy understanding of relationships and individual well-being to bring peace and fulfillment”
It can be hard to know where to turn when life seems hopeless, when facing another day feels exhausting. It is my passion to walk with others as they journey through the most difficult places in their lives and help them move towards happiness, hope, and freedom.
I have learned to love who I am as a woman and expect others to love me as I love myself. I have come from a place of low self-esteem into living from the power God gave me as a woman. I offer the way to other women who might be struggling. Women face specific challenges that can make every aspect of life more challenging; work, school, relationships, etc. Having a deep knowledge and understanding of these issues and having been through them myself, allows me to help both men and women and how they relate to one another.
As everyone’s needs are different and unique, I am trained in a number of different modalities to help couples, individuals, and families. I specialize in empowering women, marital/couples work, sex and intimacy, parent-child relational concerns, as well as other mental health concerns such as depression and anxiety.
My educational background includes a MS in Marriage and Family Therapy from Friends University in Kansas City in collaboration with Christ First Counseling Center in Topeka, as well as a BA in Psychology from Washburn University in Topeka.
I believe that everyone has a story to tell. A story that is unique to you, one that may be filled with pain, suffering, and sorrow. That story deserves to be heard and cared for with dignity, tenderness, and compassion. It is my hope that this is your experience with me as we travel together towards peace and freedom. As your therapist, it will never be my place to judge or place blame, not is it to be an advice giver. My role is to walk with you on your journey, care for you, and help you find your path toward peace and restoration.
I appreciate your consideration in having me be your therapist. I would be honored to walk with you in this hard place. Let’s work together to not just put a bandage over the hurt places in your life, but uncover the reasons for the pain and repair the damage that has been done
