Provider Bio

I have been working in the mental health field for 7 years in group therapy, individual therapy, managing a supportive home for severely autistic individuals, and as a residential treatment counselor for children who have been neglected, abused and experienced trauma. The counseling relationship is a reflection of one of our deepest needs: to be connected with those around us. Just as Christ invites us to be in relationship with him to find healing, hope and assurance, we can utilize His guidance in the therapeutic relationship to do the same.

Reece and I have been married for 5 of the 10 years that we have been together and we have two cats that provide humor and love daily! We are currently taking the steps to grow our family through adoption. We love to get outdoors and mountain bike, run, and hike. I enjoy traveling to spend time with friends and family who live all over the United States. In my free time, I enjoy scrapbooking, crocheting, sewing, reading and completing home improvement projects.
