After serving for thirteen years as a missionary with a worldwide organization, I felt a strong call to learn how to better care for those who feel broken and stuck in life. This experience, combined with an MA in Clinical Psychology, drives my integrative approach to psychology with a biblically informed worldview.
I work primarily with adults and specialize in the treatment of anxiety, depression, grief, adjustments to life stages, and trauma. I view my role in the therapeutic relationship as one who walks alongside individuals and couples, giving them a place to rest and process their struggles, while also fostering a perspective of hope.
Furthermore, my previous career in full-time ministry provides insight into the particular needs of those who work in this field. I am grateful for the opportunity to now serve this segment of the population through therapy.
I am married and enjoy spending time with my family, including playing with my two small children, reading, cooking, and—whenever I get the chance—downhill skiing.
