Counseling Interns

In partnership with A New Life Christian Counseling . . .

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.

Everyone’s life journey has mountains, valleys, creeks, and oceans to traverse and it can sometimes be overwhelming! We experience joy, sadness, triumph, loss, and the complete gamut of emotions on our travels. While no two people’s life journey is exactly the same, there are people who can help you along the way through understanding, caring empathy, and educated guidance. My belief as a counselor is to be here to help you follow or seek a change to your path, to make it the most direct and smooth course it can be. 

Each time we pick up our foot, extend it in front of us, and then put it down again is one more step to moving “ever forward.”

Social work is based upon the understanding that every person, family, and group possesses within themselves the unique strengths and abilities they need in order to overcome the issues that confront them. My job as a social worker is to support you in realizing your potential and overcoming the barriers that stand in the way of you becoming your most actualized self. I place an emphasis on overall well-being, and view each individual and family as a piece of a larger system within which they experience life. I will work with you to identify the underlying issues that may be getting in the way of your well-being and growth and together we will work to address these issues.
