Masters of Counseling-Cornerstone University

My story has motivated and encouraged me to come alongside those who are in need of direction and healing. Our stories are ever-changing and though many of these stories include times of trial and heartache, I believe that healing is possible when we come together and write a new story. My desire is to become part of your team and be able to enter into the parts of your story that don't make sense and that need to be worked through. I believe that we can come to understand your story and move towards healing as well as getting to know how your story will unfold. When I'm not working with others on understanding and developing their stories, I enjoy watching movies, spending time with my husband, friends, family, and exploring the outdoors. In my spare time I love singing, practicing yoga, and running. I believe that self-care is essential for our wellbeing and therefore make it a priority.

My Approach

My counseling approach often depends on what is best for those I meet with to help them heal in the way that works for them. My primary approaches include: narrative therapy and person-centered therapy. I believe these approaches help acknowledge and emphasize your story to bring healing. I like to include Cognitive Behavioral therapy and I like to utilize mindfulness and relaxation skills. Initially, our time spent together will begin with the privilege of getting to hear your story and building into our therapeutic relationship. Then, we will move forward by utilizing various therapeutic approaches to help you understand how the future chapters of your story will be written.

What You Can Expect

It can certainly be intimidating to share your story with someone you haven't yet met but know that time will be taken to build trust and get to know each other. Your story is important and unique to you. When we work together, we will create a safe space where you will be treated with the utmost dignity and respect. It is important to me that you feel safe and comfortable while working together to make change and bring healing to your story.
