Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist | MFT, MA
I grew up on a farm in western Iowa and attended Christian colleges. After directing 2 large Christian preschools that lead to parenting classes, I felt directed to become a Christian counselor. I enrolled in Azusa Pacific University’s Christian Masters in Counseling.
Growing up in a family with addiction, I attended Adult Children of Alcoholics (ACA) and 12-Step meetings. I became aware that the Christian population was in deep need of the spiritual/emotional healing process that 12-Step program offers to those coming out of an array of dysfunctional homes. Without emotional healing, I don’t believe a Christian is fully able to receive all of God’s unconditional love.
With over 30 years of counseling experience, I integrate Biblical principles, including prayer, God’s Word and His ways, into the treatment process, along with a good understanding of all denominational backgrounds and affects of spiritual abuse. I counsel those in crisis, trauma, suffering grief and loss, marital and parenting issues and spiritual growth. I work with individuals, kids, teens and/or whole families and am on many insurance panels.
