“Embrace uncertainty. Some of the most beautiful chapters in our lives won’t have a title until much later” – Bob Goff

Philosophy and Therapeutic Approach

True, transformative change happened for me when I was able to integrate my story with God’s rich tapestry. My therapeutic approach springs forth from a place of deep assurance that God has a place for all of us and our stories within His artistry. 

Often in life, we function in survival mode. Especially when we feel broken, encounter difficulties, or confront challenges. We say things like “I am a survivor.” But is that enough? I believe that thriving within God’s beautiful plan for our lives is so much more than surviving. We quickly give grace to others, but we struggle at giving grace to ourselves. 

Self-compassion provides this foundation for grace, so we can develop our inner resilience and capacity for living the joyful and fulfilling life God has created for us. I utilize modalities and therapeutic tools that allow me to focus on you as an individual person. You are uniquely made, and my desire is that through counseling you are able to learn, identify, and discover who He created you to be. 

What to Expect in Therapy

It is my belief that individuals can live a more meaningful life once they have identified their purpose. My counseling approach explores your own story, to see how you see yourself in the world, and to provide you the opportunity to create a new narrative, as we are so much more than our stories. 

Therapy is a collaborative process, and the goal for every session is to make you feel comfortable to work through any current challenges and achieve the changes needed to move forward. 

Change takes time, and can be accomplished by nurturing your environment, helping facilitate your personal growth, strengthening your self-awareness, increasing your self-acceptance, and illuminating the gifts of diversity within yourself. Being a woman of color I am passionate about social advocacy and strive to conduct my practice through modern values of cultural sensitivity. 

Personal Qualifications and Experience

I am currently pursuing my Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Colorado Christian University. I have a Bachelors in Psychology and Criminal Justice as well, and I currently work for the judicial system providing accountability for individuals without hindering their growth or progress forward. I work with a variety of people from different walks of life, and understand everyone has different experiences, and living through these experiences is how we learn to operate in the world. 

I also work within my church and community providing resources and support for those in need, and volunteering within the youth ministry. I have a huge passion for women and children, families, teens, and young adults.

Personal Interests

I love to cook–for me, cooking is therapy! I enjoy a good 5K, and I have 4 children and I have 3 grandchildren who call me Mimi. I love traveling and experiencing different cultures. God created us to live in community with each other, and curiosity and exploration allows us to cultivate relationships outside of our little boxes. 

My favorite scripture is Jeremiah 29:11: “For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you hope and a future.”

Even when we don’t see it, having trust and faith is so important, and I’ve learned the truth of this verse in my own life. 

I am honored to walk with you, exploring your story, as we embark on a journey toward wellness and a life of thriving. 

The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion—to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair (Isaiah 61:1-3, NIV).
