Hello! You’ve come to the right place. I realize that asking for help can be intimidating, shameful and frightening. My goal is to make the process simple, safe and without judgement. Give me a call to find hope and healing.
Spirit of Hope Counseling Center has helped countless individuals, couples and families bring peace and connection into their lives.
As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist I’ve been working in private practice for 19 years, so I’ve been around for a while! I have provided hope and healing to many individuals struggling with codependency or losing oneself, abuse, trauma, anxiety and depression. I also offer help for couples to find their way back to one another and have a truly meaningful and more connected relationship.
My book, “Reclaiming a Lost Soul: Codependency Revealed and Recovered” offers help for those who love others with addictions and who have lost their own souls for the sake of loved ones.
I have specialized certification in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). This is a powerful treatment strategy for anxiety, depression, trauma, abuse and other troubling concerns.
If you’re struggling to decide if you stay in your marriage, consider Discernment Counseling as a therapy approach to help you sort out the confusion.
I believe we all have the right answers for our situation within us and we only need a little help to access those answers. I collaborate with clients so they can find their true selves and learn to be the person God intended them to be . . . to be authentic. With help you can alleviate negative core messages, address relationship problems, build self-esteem and learn new ways to live without internal turmoil.
“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
I Believe True Healing Comes from God
I’m doing this work because I believe it’s God’s desire for my life to help others. I do, however, know that not everyone shares the same viewpoint. I’m here to help anyone, no matter your values or religious beliefs. I honor where everyone is at in their spiritual journey.
We can’t help people spiritually when there is emotional pain that needs to be attended to first.” – Rev. Christopher B. Enstad
