Let Me Introduce Myself

I am a Marriage and Family Therapist licensed in Indiana and Kentucky.  I have a Bachelor's Degree from Johnson University in Knoxville, TN and a Master's Degree from Indiana Wesleyan University.  I am grateful for the training and passion that both of these schools instilled.  I have a passion for finding ways that my faith and my training intercede and am passionate about sharing this with those who struggle to trust either the mental health field or the faith community.

As a lot of us are experiencing, my faith and my practice have drastically changed in the past few years.  I have found myself disoriented by the injustices in our systems and in the difficulty that I am having to find faith leaders in the evangelical world who are fighting for the people that I believe Jesus would be fighting for.  I spent several years in Owensboro, KY working with the International Center to help resettle and provide mental health support for Refugees who have found safety from their country of origin.  It changed my world view, more than any missionary work I have ever been a part of.  I participated in what I believed to be a civil duty to have a confederate statue removed from the courthouse in Owensboro, KY because of my belief that racism is still present and our society is being organizing under.  I was shocked at the hate I observed and it has changed me.

As with many of us, this disorientation has left me with more questions that not only have I ever had, but have ever been free and brave enough to ask out loud.  I do not have answers, and I am skeptical of anyone who claims to have all of them.  But I have found freedom in allowing myself to ask, seek, doubt, and redefine what my faith looks like.  I invite anyone who is looking for a place to ask, seek, doubt and redefine to meet with me.  You will find safety, support, and warmth that will hopefully help you seek and heal.

I have spent nearly 20 years working with families who need support to improve their marriages, their parenting, and their view of self.  I invite anyone who needs a safe place to share struggles and find ways to empower their family to meet with me.  You will find evidence-based work in a warm and safe atmosphere to meet your goals in ways that feel authentic to you.

I have also spent nearly 20 years working with children, teens and adults who have experienced trauma.  I have seen the ways these memories and experiences have affected relationships, mental health, view of self and others.  I am inviting anyone who is ready to address that trauma to meet with me.  You will find respect, power, and safety to move at a pace that you feel appropriate using evidence based work.
