Her desire is to create and encourage a safe, empathic, and professional environment where healing and growth can occur.

“I desire to work with those individuals who are searching for comfort, peace and healing. I believe that one of the most important things that a counselor can do is to help someone discover and live with hope in their life. Many times this is hard to see in light of circumstances and situations. As believers, we are promised that ‘hope does not disappoint us.’ This is at the heart of my work and passion. This Hope is what enables us to live our daily life and overcome our struggles.”
