Life is hard. Relationships are complicated. Sometimes, it does feel like God gives us more than we can handle! My mission is to walk with you through these times of darkness and show you that there is hope! God wastes nothing in your life. While we live in a fallen world, He wants healing and hope in the times of your hurts and your heartaches. He is at work for good in the middle of life’s greatest challenges.  But sometimes it’s hard to wait for His timing. We want peace now! Remember, when you are walking through the valley, He is with you, even if you do not feel it, wanting healing and peace for your suffering. I tell you this, because I know what it is like to walk through the valley. The valley can be scary, lonely and exhausting. However, it was through the valley that I found my own calling to become a therapist. I would be honored to walk with you through the valley and on the journey to your mountain top!


Isaiah 61:3

To all who mourn in Israel he will give: beauty for ashes; joy instead of mourning; praise instead of heaviness. For God has planted them like strong and graceful oaks for his own glory.
