“Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.” – Philippians 4:8

Philosophy and Therapeutic Approach

Sometimes, it’s hard to lay our burdens at the feet of Jesus. Wherever you are, whatever you are going through, that is precisely where I would like to meet you. My greatest desire is to be a conduit for the Lord and for you to experience healing, restoration, and peace. I want you to know that you don’t have to go it alone–I am in your corner.

Therapy in and of itself is not anything magical. Your willingness to show up and do the hard work is the magic of the therapeutic process. You bravely desiring to pursue change in your life is the key to unlocking your healing. I am constantly striving to awaken authenticity through the counseling process. While in the counseling setting, I take a non-pathological stance and look at the issue through an attachment theory and interpersonal neurobiological viewpoint. I aim to see the whole person, not the labels. It is always an honor to walk alongside my clients to help facilitate the process of growth, healing, and transformation.

What to Expect in Therapy

Sometimes, filling out the forms and scheduling your first appointment is the hardest part of beginning therapy. But I believe you can do hard things, and I’m so glad you’re here!

My goal is to create a safe space to process what you are going through and be your biggest champion. Your first session with me is a time to get to know each other and ensure we’re a good match. We will go through the therapeutic process’s practical parts and talk about your goals and what you’d like to get out of therapy. I will listen empathetically and ensure you feel heard. From there, we will be fellow sojourners on this voyage, adapting and attuning to the needs of the process as we go and according to the treatment goals.

What therapy looks like for you might look different than it does for someone else. Sometimes, you need a space to process or someone who can keep you accountable for your goals. Sometimes, you need tools for behavior modification or strategies for communication. Sometimes, you need support as you work through a hard season of life. Whatever you are coming to counseling for, my goal is to make sure you feel seen and understood so that we can move toward the outcomes you desire.

Personal Qualifications and Experience

I am a licensed professional counselor candidate. I have a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs and a master’s in clinical mental health counseling from Liberty University. Before pursuing my master’s degree in counseling, I spent many years as a stay-at-home mom. I have a heart for parenthood and everything that goes into raising these people that God has entrusted us to steward. 

In addition to Cornerstone Christian Counseling, I have worked at a residential treatment facility for children in complex situations. I have training in synergetic play therapy and have experience supporting educators of high schoolers with severe behavioral needs. At Cornerstone, I work with families, couples, teens/children, and men and women struggling with life transitions/adjustments, parenthood, anxiety, and depression.

Personal Interests

I have lived in Castle Rock for most of my life. My husband and I have three kids and a dog. As of this year, I have joined the homeschool community and will see where the Lord takes us in that endeavor. I am both excited and nervous to try something new. Someone once said, “Do it scared,” that is precisely where I find myself. I have decided that if I cannot try to have fun doing it, it’s not going to end well for me, so I have put up a sign in my homeschool space with a quote from the famous theologian Michael Scott from The Office, which says “I am going to make this way harder than it needs to be.” A life motto that I tend to gravitate towards naturally.

My favorite activity (and the key to my heart) is laughter. It does not discriminate, and you can do it anywhere with anybody. When I have the type of laugh that makes my stomach hurt, and tears roll down my cheeks, I always think to myself, “I hope this is what heaven is like.” If you have made it this far reading my bio, thank you. I hope we can cross paths and be humans together.

Until I learned to trust, 

I never learned to pray; 

I never learned to fully trust 

‘Till sorrows came my way. 

Until I felt my weakness, 

His strength I never knew— 

Nor dreamed ’till I was stricken 

That He would see me through. 

Who deepest drinks of sorrow, 

Drinks deepest, too, of grace; 

He sends the storm, so He Himself 

Can be our hiding place. 

His heart that seeks our highest good, 

Knows well when things annoy; 

We would not long for heaven 

If earth held only joy.
