Life is hard...

It is also full of joyful possibilities. There are times when our feelings get the best of us. We are sad, anxious, overwhelmed or feel stuck. Familiar patterns of emotional and thought responses can keep us from living our best life.

As a therapist…It is my greatest joy to walk with you as you uncover a new pathway through old emotions and behaviors in order to discover your strengths. With over 20 years of experience as a pastoral psychotherapist, I know that a fully lived life includes emotional, spiritual, physical and mental well-being. We will work together to create healing and wholeness. I welcome individuals, couples and families who seek a new way of understanding and living. I will work to explore strategies that can create your best life.  For those in relationship with someone struggling with addiction, I offer a safe supportive space for recovery.

As a coach… I look forward to working with you to identify your strengths, patterns of success and new behaviors that lead to greater accomplishments and satisfaction at work and in life. Career and employment are crucial components of our identity, self-esteem and sense of competency. There are times when we feel stuck, need new skills to manage a new position or to manage change. Through assessments and strengths based questions we will uncover your leadership potential, your creative energy and the inspiration to create your best life.
