I’ve known since entering adulthood that my calling in this life was to care for people.
I graduated from Western Kentucky University in 2001 with a Bachelor of Science in Social Work and again in 2005 with a Masters in Social Work. After moving to Arkansas, I began a counseling career at Ozark Guidance working with adolescents and families affected by abuse, trauma and mental illness.
In 2010, our family relocated to Southern California where my husband joined the staff of Saddleback Church. We had the sweet opportunity to learn from one of the best churches in the world in the areas of recovery, mental health and the church, and loving the “least of these.”
A year later, we were sent by Saddleback to Northwest Arkansas to plant Grace Hills Church. I joined the Ozark Guidance team once again, providing therapy to foster children and foster families.
Currently, I serve part-time on staff at Grace Hills overseeing recovery ministries and women’s discipleship. While I provide individual, marriage, and family counseling, I have developed a passion and a special desire to help women who are battling fear, trauma, and depression. I have had the opportunity to walk alongside many women and help give them the tools to become unstuck in their journey and to not just move forward, but to flourish.
I have specialized training in the areas of recovery and trauma. My husband and I reside in Northwest Arkansas with our three kiddos, about whom we are crazy! My greatest desire as a therapist is to give you the space to tell your story, help you identify your struggles, and then move forward toward healing.
