Associate Pastor of Counseling, Connection & Discipleship
"A heart at peace gives life to the body." Proverbs 14:30
I absolutely love watching the Lord heal His children. We all carry with us wounds from past experiences. I consider it an honor to journey with others in a sacred space to help them process truth, and make sense of their journey. Our story is never finished. We are always in the process of writing the next chapter. I get excited when a person or couple realizes there's a specific plan for their life and that the Lord wants to help them write it.
I am a Provisionally Licensed Professional Counselor (PLPC) with the State of Missouri; I am a Registered Nurse, and I currently hold a Lay Minister's License with the Nazarene Church. I use a variety of counseling models within the counseling process. However, I believe Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT) is ideal in connecting people and creating healthier relationships.
My experience includes: Advance Training in EFT, over 30 years of ministry experience, and more than 24 years as a Registered Nurse.
My Spiritual Journey
I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior at a young age. Grew up in the church, struggled and learned that God's love for me was never changing. My story, like everyone's, has it's own moments of pain. What I have found is that I believe that we all do better by walking with the Lord daily. It's about making one right God honoring decision at a time. My relationship with Jesus is the number one important relationship in my life. He is always faithful!
