Providing mental health services in the Chattanooga area since 1999
Graduate Pastoral Counseling Intern
Bryan College, B.A. in Biblical Studies, B.A in Mathematics
The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, M.Div in Biblical Counseling
Upon graduation, I plan to pursue certification to counsel through the Association of Certified Biblical Counselors.
My counseling philosophy is both holistic and relational. I seek to understand not only the problems, but also how relationships, physical health, family of origin, and spiritual health are shaping the current struggles. My goal is to reframe problems into opportunities to grow personally, relationally, and spiritually.
Spiritual formation, trauma, childhood sexual abuse, relationship/interpersonal issues, depression, anxiety, OCD, infidelity, self-harm, self-esteem/identity, family of origin issues, grief and loss
I work with adult individuals and couples.
My journey starts with a calling. As a chaplain candidate and someone who relies on my relationships to help me in difficult times, I understand that life does not always go as planned. As someone who has benefitted from the counseling, I know firsthand how important the first step can be in the healing process. I look forward to helping those in my community build strong bonds.
