Life can be hard. Sure there are seasons of smooth sailing and calm waters but sometimes we can find ourselves sinking in a boat full of holes in the middle of a storm. Often, we don’t know what caused the holes, how to fix them, or how long the storm will go on. All we do know in those places is that we are going down. It is in times like these where we need not be alone, we need a fellow journeyer, a listening ear, a helping hand, a creative solution. This is why I love counseling.
I am passionate about coming alongside individuals and marriages to locate the holes, to understand what caused them, to repair and prevent them in the future.
I am also passionate about connecting the dots in order to help you gain understanding. Do you ever wonder why you snap at your spouse over something small? Have you ever thought to yourself, “Wow. That reaction was a bit strong?” I deeply desire to help people make the connection between those strong reactions and their source. Often, we know we want to stop certain behaviors but aren’t sure when or why they began in the first place. Making these connections allows for true freedom…. and seeing freedom in another soul is the goal. I’d love to offer you an listening ear and be a fellow journeyer with you.
