I'm a therapist in private practice, a minister, a writer, and a grateful adopter of rescue animals.
I'm a firm believer in the ability of people to change what's not working in their lives, and to heal wounds both old and recent. My privilege is when I get to share that journey with you.
I'm creative, both in the books that I write and the ways that we work together to find how you work best in therapy. I can be stubborn, especially when it comes to believing that we have the power to write a new a story for our lives.
I've had the gift of training with and then working alongside Elisabeth Kubler-Ross' workshop staff. I still staff grief workshops. You can find out more here. It's work that's made me comfortable with strong emotions from all kinds of grief, whether grief for the person we lost or for the safe childhood we never had.
I'm a graduate of Furman University, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, and Wake Forest University. I've done a clinical residency in chaplaincy at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center as well as a yearlong intensive in the therapy of Virginia Satir.
