Education & Work Experience

Before pursuing my career as a Christian counselor, I received my Bachelors of Science and Nursing from the University of Kansas in 1990 and spent several years as a registered nurse, working in critical care, dialysis, and long-term care. Following my call to Christian counseling, I completed my Masters of Arts in Clinical Psychology at Argosy University; after graduating, I continued to earn my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology, also from Argosy. I completed my pre-doctoral internship through the Everett Clinic at Providence Regional Cancer Partnership, and have been counseling professionally since 2008. I am a certified group leader in the Stanford Model of Living Well with Chronic Conditions, and Living Well with Diabetes, and am completing a Certificate in Primary Care Behavioral Health through the University of Massachusetts.
 

My Call to Christian Counseling

In my previous work as a nurse, I spent many years helping people as they struggled to make sense of life’s greatest obstacles and disappointments. After these experiences of helping persons in extreme circumstances of life, I realized that God was calling me to use my training and energy in the ministry of Christian counseling. The transition from nursing to counseling has been very natural, and for the past several years I have been privileged to come alongside those who are wounded and broken and to encourage them toward restoration in Jesus.
 

More About Me

I am a busy mother of two wonderful teenagers. Our family has chosen to keep life simple, and while we enjoy work and school, on weekends we spend our time together through our shared passion for extra-curricular activities, including a competitive robotics league, gardening, hiking, reading, painting and drawing.
