“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 magical. Healing comes at the intersection of faith and your willingness to show up. Bravely desiring to pursue change in your life is the key to experiencing the Lord’s 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. Whether we are working through life transitions, processing the struggles of motherhood, or wrestling the strongholds of anxiety or depression, I love using emotion-focused therapy as a transformative counseling experience that helps clients uncover feelings of security and safety. I seek the Lord and ask Him to reveal the issue’s root. I aim to see the whole person and system, 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 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. I aim to seek the Lord in all areas of life, and my faith is integral to my story. Quality relationships and lightheartedness are also crucial to me. To remind myself regularly not to take myself so seriously and that I will always need a Savior, I hung a tongue-in-cheek sign in my home with a quote from the famous theologian Michael Scott from The Office, which states, “I am going to make this way harder than it needs to be.” A life motto that I tend to gravitate towards naturally. 

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.
