Counseling for Women

“Come to me all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest for your soul.” These words from Jesus have been very comforting to me most of my life.  Pain and suffering are natural experiences of being human because Jesus also said, “You will have trouble in this world but take heart, I have overcome the world…”.  Frequently I can experience the pain and suffering while too often being too weary and heavy burdened to lean into Jesus, connect authentically to myself, and be vulnerable with the safe people in my life.

And yet even in my vulnerability and hurt, I experience hope and still seek help. 

I invite you to contact me if you are heavy burdened, overwhelmed, anxious, feeling depressed, and lonely. 

I invite you to contact me if your relationship struggles can no longer be ignored. 

I invite you to contact me if you are with an abusive partner and you are living in an unsafe home. 

Healing can happen and rest and peace are still possible.  There is still hope. There is still help.  Let’s begin your healing journey together.

Creating Community with Women

Sometimes I have described therapy and trauma work as having surgery without anesthesia.  It was like that for me when I began my healing journey over 30 years ago.

What enabled me to commit to doing my hard and painful trauma work was not just my therapist but my safe community of women who listened, encouraged, challenged, and supported me, especially when I wanted to give up and go back to my dysfunctional ways of relating to others.

As your therapist, I will also encourage you to notice who are the safe people in your life so you can build your own connecting community.

“How can I know if someone is safe?” you may ask.

“There are no safe people in my life.” you may say.

“What do I do if I don’t trust anyone enough to even know if they could be safe?” you may wonder.

I had these questions too, and sometimes still do!  But God has wired all of us for connective, safe community.  And while I understand that it’s scary  being vulnerable, not just with me but also with others, I also know this risk of authentically sharing your pain in a safe therapeutic relationship AND a safe supportive community is needed to sustain you on your healing journey.

Collaboratively Caring for Women

Some women who need Professional Christian Counseling are regular attendees or members of a faith community that have benevolence funds to help pay for professional therapy services.

I’ve collaborated with various local churches and together we utilize my Church Partnership Program where you pay a portion of my fee and I invoice the church for the balance they have agreed to pay.  If you want to explore this payment option, then please…
