As a Pastoral Counselor and Life Coach at Grace River Christian Counseling, I offer individual counseling for both adolescents and adults.  Sessions are 50 minutes long and are scheduled with varying frequency based on need. Our sessions will be a time to focus entirely on you. I aim to offer a calm, comfortable, and safe environment where you can speak freely. My approach to counseling seeks genuine relationship and confident trust when working with my clients. The topic of faith in our sessions is determined completely by you. I am a person of deep faith but respectfully allow my clients to decide when and if we discuss their own personal belief system. My passion is to accept people exactly where they are without judgement and to offer hope, encouragement, and healing. My goal is to always leave you feeling better, stronger, and more hopeful in whatever lies ahead. Together we will create new goals and embrace positive changes.

I am an ordained minister licensed in the State of Oklahoma since 2010. I have years of experience as a Corporate Chaplain serving the OKC Metro as well as leading the team as an Area Manager. I have been in private practice for over 5 years as both a Pastoral Counselor and a Life Coach. I am a Certified Biblical Counselor, a Board-Certified Advanced Life Coach, and a Life Coach Specialist designation, recognized as a Board-Certified Marriage and Family Life Coach. I am working toward licensure as an LMFT.
