About Me

I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Management and a Master's Degree in Counseling, both from Whitworth University.  I am a fully Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the State of Washington and a Nationally Certified Counselor.  Additional training includes Life Coaching through the American Association of Christian Counselors.

I am 50 years old, married to my loving and best friend Lance, and have two adult children.  In my leasure time I love to hike and explore nature with my husband and friends.  I also love to flower garden and enjoy taking pictures of my flowers and the birds, bees, and butterflies that visit my garden.  



I have been working with individuals and groups in various settings since 1999. It is my passion in life to assist women in overcoming difficulties and grow to walk in victory.


Most importantly though, I passionately love the Lord Jesus and the Word of God.  He is my life, my rightousness, and my first love above all else.  Being a therapist and life coach is not just a job for me, it is my calling in life and I have found nothing more satisfying than to glorify Him through helping His beloved Bride.

Isaiah 61 is one of my favorite chapters in the Bible.  It describes what Jesus came here to do and I've strongly felt God's call on my life to be a part of.  He came here to bind up the broken hearted and to restore, renew and rebuild. 


Isaiah 61

The Year of the LORD’s Favor
 

 

 1 The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me,
   because the LORD has anointed me
   to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
   to proclaim freedom for the captives

 

   and release from darkness for the prisoners,

 

2 to proclaim the year of the LORD’s favor
   and the day of vengeance of our God,
to comfort all who mourn,
 3 and provide for those who grieve in Zion—
to bestow on them a crown of beauty
   instead of ashes,
the oil of joy
   instead of mourning,
and a garment of praise
   instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called oaks of righteousness,
   a planting of the LORD
   for the display of his splendor.

 

 4 They will rebuild the ancient ruins
   and restore the places long devastated;
they will renew the ruined cities
   that have been devastated for generations.
5 Strangers will shepherd your flocks;
   foreigners will work your fields and vineyards.
6 And you will be called priests of the LORD,
   you will be named ministers of our God.
You will feed on the wealth of nations,
   and in their riches you will boast.

 

 7 Instead of your shame
   you will receive a double portion,
and instead of disgrace
   you will rejoice in your inheritance.
And so you will inherit a double portion in your land,
   and everlasting joy will be yours.

 

 8 “For I, the LORD, love justice;
   I hate robbery and wrongdoing.
In my faithfulness I will reward my people
   and make an everlasting covenant with them.
9 Their descendants will be known among the nations
   and their offspring among the peoples.
All who see them will acknowledge
   that they are a people the LORD has blessed.”

 

 10 I delight greatly in the LORD;
   my soul rejoices in my God.
For he has clothed me with garments of salvation
   and arrayed me in a robe of his righteousness,
as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest,
   and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
11 For as the soil makes the sprout come up
   and a garden causes seeds to grow,
so the Sovereign LORD will make righteousness
   and praise spring up before all nations.
