Grief and Loss
Grief can feel very confusing, as it usually includes a mix of several emotions that for some change daily and others even more rapidly. This can be frustrating and cause us to feel isolated and flustered. We all grieve differently, and finding someone to talk to and provide support regarding grief and loss is very important.
Having personally experienced major losses in my life, I understand the heavy cloud you may be feeling. You may have days when you feel the cloud will never lift. I want you to know that there is hope. Navigating through the thoughts, memories, and feelings can seem debilitating. In our sessions, I will help you find healthy coping skills and peace. God wants you to be able to grow from what you are experiencing, but sometimes we need help to see the growth opportunities or need to ask the hard “why” questions in a safe space. I would be honored to provide the space for you to heal.
If you are feeling depleted or are questioning your Christian experience, I would like to support you in that journey. We all need a place to share freely and explore in a supportive and safe environment, one where we can search biblical answers rather than just the opinions of others.
Maybe you’ve been afraid to confront some of your deepest thoughts due to feeling judged and not having a safe space to share them. Perhaps you are trying to understand your life’s purpose or trying to determine which direction to take for an important decision. God has a plan for you, and He wants you to also be empowered to make the best choices that will glorify and honor Him.
Perhaps the gloom of depression has snuck up on you and now you are feeling low, gloomy, or lacking energy, to name a few common symptoms of depression. If you have feelings of sadness, are lacking energy, have difficulty getting up in the morning, cry often, notice changes in appetite, or feel more irritable toward people around you, then you have come to the right place. Depression can be a dark place where you feel alone and stuck. I am here to support you and help you understand your thoughts, change them if needed, and consider new choices that will positively impact your mood.
I have seen the most success with motivated individuals who want to get out of the hole they’ve been experiencing and desire to include biblical tools in their healing. Sometimes this means exploring what God wants us to be thinking, learning to think about our thoughts, and determining which ones are useful and which ones are not. If you are seeking a therapist because you or someone you love is feeling sad or struggling with depression, I’m glad to help.
Professional Development, Career Coaching, and Personal Development
We spend more hours of the week engaged in our profession/career than we spend doing almost anything else. Therefore, it is very important to feel content with what we are doing. Some people feel more content when they have chosen a career that aligns with their values and meets certain criteria. I can help you organize your priorities and needs, whether you are trying to decide which profession to start, whether to make a change, or how to thrive in the environment you’re already in.
Talking with a professional can help you keep all the pieces together in order to make the best choice for yourself. No matter the profession, we can honor God in what we are doing. Reframing your approach to your current position or understanding how to frame your new position is important, and God wants to be a part of it.
Perhaps for you, professional development includes learning better communication and people skills. Not only will this help you with day-to-day operations, but it will likely also help you to be more successful.
Many women in today’s confusing society are struggling with who God has created us to be. You’re not alone in this struggle. When you find out more about what God has for you as a spiritually, sexually, psychologically, relationally, and emotionally healthy woman, you will find more strength and purpose in what you do.
Finding this place may include us talking about a variety of topics, such as your family, body image, self-worth, self-talk, expectations, understanding your misbeliefs, what it means to be a parent, or boundaries.
I understand the challenges women have to face and the importance of recognizing our value as human beings. I hope to be a safe place for you to explore where you are coming from and where you want to go to be a balanced woman.
