Inspired by wholehearted living and amazing grace; I understand how shame and fear barricade us from living life more fully and when we experience stressors, it's not uncommon to feel as though life is unraveling. We can lose our way with marriages, interpersonal relationships or professional focus. My passion is to bring support and help people to recalibrate, navigate or find that place of acceptance and belonging.
Special Areas of Interest:
- Peer Relationships
- Life Transitions
- Family Conflict
- Marital and Pre-Marital
Other Areas of Service:
- Pregnancy, Prenatal, Postpartum
- Caregivers; Alzheimer's + Ministerial Professionals
We explore thoughts, emotions and core beliefs and address how they impact everyday life, including our relationships. We identify the roadblocks and work toward reconciling and healing the places that are impacted. I assist clients to create secure attachments, address primary emotional needs, improve their internal thought world and create interactional patterns that are healthy, and not hurtful.
A Quiet Place
A therapist-facilitated peer support and consultation group to provide a safe and engaging place for female clergy and ministry leaders to discuss professional and personal concerns and enhance skills as spiritual and community leaders.
Where you can show up with all of your vulnerabilities, inspirations, expirations and everything-in-between and find acceptance, belonging, time to reflect and find support. A confidential, nurturing environment, where it is safe to have real life conversations.

I work in two distinct contextual environments - clinical and pastoral. Inspired by wholehearted living and amazing grace; as a therapist, I help clients explore thoughts, emotions and core beliefs and address how they impact everyday life, including our relationships. As a pastor, I help individuals explore the existential questions of life, offer pastoral insights for spiritual formation and comfort in times of distress. I have been married for 26 years to my spouse, who is also a pastor, and I am the mother of two teenage sons. I enjoy hiking, canoeing, reading, coffee sipping, hammocking, meaningful conversations and traveling.
