MA in Communication with Psychology minor from University of Oklahoma
Pursuing MA in Biblical Counseling from Dallas Theological Seminary
I spent 10 years working for Campus Crusade for Christ (Cru) with college students and young adults where I had the privilege of caring for needs, walking through suffering, and exploring how faith is a part of this journey. I have spent the past 11 years as a mom of three children where God has stretched my faith and dependence on Him. I have also had the opportunity to lead women's Bible studies, serve in children's ministry, and lead an afterschool ministry at my kid's elementary school. My ministry experience has given me many opportunities to come alongside people who are struggling in many life stages, and I think the counseling setting is a unique safe space to wrestle with pain, questions, anxiety, strongholds, conflicts, and anger.
My passion is to see restoration in the lives of God's image bearers through soul care that reorients people to God's redemptive purposes in their lives. We all experience the effects of brokenness in our world. Situations in life bring suffering and confusion. The choices of others impact us in hurtful ways, and our own weakness and failures can be overwhelming. There is hope and grace as God brings healing in multiple ways to us. God uses broken and imperfect people in this process, and my role is to hear and understand your struggle and to help you process in light of who God is.
My foundation for counseling is the gospel story. God made a beautiful world with humans as His image bearers to live in flourishing. This world was shattered through selfishness and rebellion against Him, and yet He promised a rescuer. This rescue came through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. We find true life and healing in Him, but it is often a difficult path. Counseling is a context for this healing to happen, and over time we make changes in our actions, thoughts, beliefs, and desires.
