COUNSELING


I’ll never forget the conversation.

I was in the admissions office at Olivet Nazarene University trying to decide on a major. Just pick what you want to do for the rest of your life… it’s so easy, right? I remember bouncing back and forth like most college students do. The admissions counselor said, “If you study psychology, you’ll most likely have to go to graduate school or maybe you could write a book or something.”

I remember bouncing back and forth like most college students do. The admissions counselor said, “If you study psychology, you’ll most likely have to go to graduate school or maybe you could write a book or something.”

Immediately, I switched my major to business. Practical. Dependable. Good jobs without graduate school requirements. Yes, please.

God’s so funny to me as I look back on my last ten years of life. I finished my business degree, got my practical job in business, and a few months later received a clear call into ministry. All of those things led me to (you guessed it) graduate school to study mental health counseling AND to write a book. God’s chuckling; I just know it.


I know counseling can be intimidating, but I always encourage people to just try it once. Find a reputable counselor, take a deep breath, and make the phone call.

As a counselor, I value incorporating God’s word into everyday life. Anxiety, depression, self-harm, trauma, and relationship issues are my main focuses of treatment. I enjoy helping my clients with the practicality of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, the depth of Psychoanalytic Therapy, and the awareness and experience of Gestalt Therapy. I’m Level 1 Certified in Gottman Therapy for couples and love to see marriages win.
