Focus on the Family's Christian Counselors Network

I specialize in providing quality therapeutic services for teenagers, parents, and families. From the moment you place your eyes on your little one, existence as you know it is forever changed. Kids have this uncanny way of nuzzling into your heart, creating room for deeper emotional connection within yourself. Often times, they produce a mixture of emotions that range from love and laughter to anger and tears. As time goes on, challenges may present themselves in unexpected ways. If you notice your child is not living up to their full potential, gets easily angry or teary, is sad or anxious, or does not want to do the activities they once enjoyed, assistance may be needed. I am able to help your child name and identify their emotions, teach them positive habits to cope with intense emotions, and help them have a stronger sense of self. Every parent needs to take care of themselves. Self-Care looks different for everyone but is essential because of the daily sacrifices you make to give your child a good future. Together we will also discuss how you can nurture yourself as you faithfully care for your child.

Embracing the qualities of compassion and kindness are important in our daily lives regardless of how big or small your current obstacles are. Together we will explore how God created your unique self, discover your strengths, and reflect on the areas of life where you desire change. Therapy is an amazing journey of empowerment, connection, and feeling stronger in weathered areas of life.

I received my M.A. in Counseling from Covenant Theological Seminary in 2006 and have been a licensed professional counselor since 2010. I have a B.A. in Art and Minors in Art History and History from University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Before becoming a therapist, I worked as a campus minister with the Navigators in Lincoln, NE and spent 4 summers in Colorado working for this ministry while in college. Additionally, I am a Christian, wife, mom of two girls, and friend.
