You

Beautiful and Fearfully Made Woman

Are you a single woman, wife or mother who feels stressed, overwhelmed and frustrated?

Do you feel like running away?

Are you a digital nomad or living abroad struggling to adjust being away from family and the nomad lifestyle has taken a toll on you?

Are you struggling with parenting a child with emotional and behavior problems at home and school?

Are you taking care of an aging parent and feel emotionally exhausted, and you don’t know what to do?

Are you having difficulties communicating with your spouse?

Are you recently divorced or an empty nester and wondering what to do with your life?

Are you in your 50’s struggling with the changes in your body and in your life or are you a millennial trying to figure out adult life?

Are you distanced from God and need some spiritual guidance to reconnect with your first love?

Are you looking for a safe place to share your feelings, gain insight and find solutions in life challenges? 

​Today, you are one step closer to a new “YOU” where you feel empowered, strong in the Lord and on a positive and faith filled path to growth, peace, and well-being.  If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation, or you need someone to talk to, I look forward to supporting you and working with you to achieve your goals.

As a Christian Psychotherapist, my goal is to help to help you navigate through life transitions, overcome feelings of depression, anxiety, and unbelief, build up your faith and Christ confidence and to forgive yourself and others. I also will help to you uncover your true potential in Yeshua (Jesus) so that you can live a life that is worth celebrating and giving Him the glory. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life.

By applying Distinctively Christian Counseling with valid psychotherapy intervention such as Supportive Counseling, Solution Focused Brief Therapy and Evidence Based Psychotherapy, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, I will teach you how to overcome long-standing behavior patterns, limited beliefs and negative perceptions that may be holding you back from seeing yourself the way God does, achieving your God given purpose or experiencing a more fulfilling life as the Daughter of King.

What To Expect At Your Visit

Learn About My Methods

During your initial visit, we welcome you, start with prayer and conduct an Initial Mental Health Assessment that consist of asking you a series of questions about the reason for your visit, current symptoms that you are experiencing, your life history from childhood to now, (including family, mental, educational, employment, medical and spiritual history) and your thoughts, feelings and behaviors. Following the assessment, we will identify and agree on your goals and create a treatment plan that is designed based on yours needs and goals. Before the session ends, we will agree on weekly or biweekly time schedule appointments.  A homework assignment is given after the Initial Mental Health Evaluation and every session. At the beginning of the each therapy session we will invite Jesus, the Wonderful Counselor in prayer and follow His guidance by the power of His Holy Spirit in the sessions.  Each session will end with 15 minutes Christian meditation.
