Has your family suffered a trauma, loss, change, or heartache? Do you feel depressed after a major life event?   Has your marriage hit a hard patch?  Is your child or teenager struggling? Are you in professional ministry facing challenges? I look forward to helping you find hope during life’s storms. 

Individuals. Helping individuals who have experienced trauma, sexual abuse, grief and loss to process the pain and begin healing is very important to me. 

CouplesEven the best of couples need time and attention. The stress of daily life and difficult circumstances challenge our sense of unity and affection for one another. I enjoy helping couples resolve issues and renew their commitment to one another, finding relief and thriving again.

Children/Teens.  When helping children, play is their therapeutic language. Art and sand table play can be a very non-threatening environment to deal with issues. Teens need an emotionally safe person with whom to address their feelings, fears and behaviors. 

Ministry and Medical.  I have specific experience working with individuals and couples in ministry and know first hand the unique challenges. I’ve also work in the medical field and am able to offer insight and support to those facing health concerns.                                                                

Don’t hesitate to contact me if I can help.

Piled on the couch with these jokers after their first day of 10th and 8th grade. I had to BREATHE LIFE into them with homemade calzones (me) and banana bread (Sydney). I just said to both: “Just try to stay awake until 9:00.” They haven’t accomplished a 9:00pm-6:30am sleep cycle since the last day of school. Recycling this from 2017 because it is the truest thing I have ever said:

By the end of your cherubs' first week of school, they are:


Listen to me: do not go to "celebration dinner" Friday night, do not go to the late football game, do not decide to run errands, do not make big plans, do not ask one million questions, do not force them to talk about everything, do not attempt to execute ANYTHING AT ALL in which your expectations include children who are pleasant.

They are like overfilled balloons. Should you accidentally push them too hard by, for example, asking them to chew with their mouths closed or making suggestions for dinner or any other unreasonable pressure, they will violently burst and ruin the thing you were dumbly considering as a Fun Family Situation.

Your Friday night plans after the first week of school need to involve a couch, some blankets, a pizza, and a movie. That is it. That is all anyone can handle. Your kid will make it past the first twenty minutes tops. They are all goners. Do not put them in the car and try to go somewhere, because they will turn your car into the Crazy Train.

Your mission should you choose to accept it because you are a Smart Person is to do & plan nothing the first weekend after school starts. Let their little bodies catch up. They are exhausted after their summer of being sloth children who now have to think and pay attention for 7 hours a day.

Plus, first week of school emotions. Plus, change. Plus, new scenarios and teachers & students & schedules. Plus, that one mean girl. Plus, figuring out where to sit at lunch. Plus, all the new rules. Plus, recess politics. Plus, homework. Plus, did their clothes/shoes/hair/backpack fit in right. Plus, the bus. Plus, they learned the F word on the playground & everything feels weird.

Trust your friend Jen: couch, blanket, pizza, movie. That's your weekend. You’re welcome. Tag your friends who NEED TO KNOW 👇🏼
