I am a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, a friend, and a follower of Jesus. In addition to these roles, I have the distinct privilege of sitting with others as they journey towards healing. I have been a licensed therapist since 2000 and am honored to be invited into some of the deepest scars of some seriously brave individuals. My journey as a therapist continues to transform the way I see the world in front of me. I am an observer and I am a storyteller. Sometimes I tell my own story and sometimes I tell the story of how I am transformed by your courage to share yours. Through this journey of life, I am more and more convinced that while our stories are composed of unique details, they somehow bring us back to a place of being more alike than we are different. My ongoing prayer is that we would walk together and grow in our desire to extend compassion to one another. I believe that this increase in demonstrating compassion is fueled by truly seeing one another. I hope that this blog will be a part of that fuel.
