My Philosophy

In today’s world life is difficult for adults and kids alike. It is my passion to join someone and walk with them through hard points in life. I enjoy working alongside individuals, ages 4 through young adult, implementing a cognitive-behavioral and strengths based approach. At the heart of me is the belief that each person is valued, gifted, and has potential to grow.  Sometimes allegorical rocks prevent growth from happening. It is at this point that I appreciate the chance to enter your or your child’s life, work with you to move these “rocks”, and help you grow to experience life more fully.  I offer play therapy for young children as well as individual psychotherapy.


During my college years, I followed a lifelong dream to work in orphanages in Central America.  I returned home eager to give young people tools to handle the hard things they face.  Life isn’t fair, but with someone believing in you, there is hope to grow, become stronger, and gain skills to handle adversity in life.  This is true for every person I’ve encountered.  I believe that when I am given the chance to walk closely with a person or family, through the vulnerable and difficult space, we can work together to find change and hope.

I graduated from Washington Bible College and received a M.A. in Professional Counseling from Liberty University. I have taken additional classes through Capital Bible Seminary and Rivier University. Prior to moving to NH, I worked with young people, their families and teachers in and around inner city Baltimore. My passion is coming alongside a person and walking with that individual towards growth.  I believe that change implemented when a person is younger has a lifelong positive impact. Together, we work to grow from the challenge, find hope in the process, and make lasting change.

When I’m not at the office, my time is filled with adventuring with my husband and two kids.  We recently added a puppy to our house, so we’re enjoying hours playing and teaching him.  We love ocean trips, mountain hikes, and putting an excessive amount of whipped topping and sprinkles on ice cream.
