Personal statements:

Too often people feel alone in life, and my greatest honor as a therapist is to be invited to walk alongside a client for a season so that they can know they are not alone. Together we can sort through life’s challenges and talk about how lament, forgiveness, grace and truth fit into the mix.

Many of my favorite Scripture passages are in the Psalms. The end of Psalm 85:6 is one of them, “Will you not revive us again, that your people may rejoice in you? Show us your unfailing love, Lord, and grant us your salvation.”
