Counseling Interns

In partnership with A New Life Christian Counselors . . .

Please note that while the worldview of each our interns is founded on Christian values, we also respect differing views of faith and spirituality and respect the choice of not including religious preferences during our time together. As professionals, we are able to offer helpful, supportive, insightful, and meaningful therapy to all who are willing to work towards their personal goals.

Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, PTSD, Abuse, Children, Teens, and Women

Changes in life can be tough and difficult to navigate alone, yet provide great opportunities for personal growth and renewal. I see health as a harmony of body, mind, and spirit. I provide a safe and accepting space for you to explore and process your thoughts and feelings to enable healing, clarity, and insight. I will journey alongside you, to inspire and support you, and to help you rediscover your own unique potential and empowerment for lasting change.

My special interests include Lifespan Integration Therapy, Play Therapy, and the use of expressive and somatic therapy models. I look forward to meeting you and journeying with you toward well-being.

Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, mental & emotional health, individuals, couples and families.

I entered the counseling field because of a life-long passion to see people live out their full purpose in life. With a listening heart, I see myself to be an instrumental agent others’ search for emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual healing. As a counselor, I consider it a sacred honor to facilitate the process of a client solving their own problems while demonstrating a genuine concern and compassion for their dilemmas.

Central to my life’s calling is a desire to see people live a more abundant life. I strive to do this in the counseling process by coming alongside you through healing, change, and growth as we address the pain and challenges of life. My hope is that by working together through these challenges, you discover and develop a holistic set of personal insights and tools (spiritual, mental, emotional, relational, and physical) that help you live life to your fullest potential. During this process I utilize a Narrative therapy approach that draws on CBT and mindfulness techniques.
