Frequently Asked Questions
My Areas of Interest
  • Counseling with couples in various seasons of life, working attentively to help them repair what has been broken, heal from betrayal, restore trust, renew friendship, increase intimacy, and become allies in life.


  • Counseling with women, helping them cultivate emotional, relational, and spiritual balance and health. Drawing not only from my professional expertise, but also from 'just living life', I strive to understand women and all that accompanies them:  friendships, singleness, partners, kids, busyness and clutter, order and control, loss and heartache, and spiritual journey.  Through participating in ongoing training, and learning every day from those I counsel, I stay equipped to address the unique challenges of depression, anxiety, ADD, disordered eating, grief, past/current trauma, relationships, and spiritual formation.  



  • Delivering and facilitating the work of Dr. Brené Brown in counseling and thru workshops and groups for women, men, and couples.  The Daring Way™ is an organization that develops curriculum and resources based on the research and writing of Dr. Brené Brown, and extensively trains and certifies helping professionals to uniquely deliver this work.  As a Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator-Consultant (CDWF-C), I offer expertise in helping individuals and couples understand the operation of shame in their lives, and how to move thru it towards whole hearted living.  This work parallels my own convictions in the value of being ransomed from shame and living a brave and authentic life. 


  • Speaking and workshop/retreat facilitation on a variety of topics related to women, parenting, whole-hearted living, marriage, and spiritual growth is also a passion.   If you would be interested in having me speak at an event or facilitate a retreat or seminar, please contact me at and I'd love to discuss ideas with you.  


  • Consultation and professional development for helping professionals.  To learn more about this, please go to the Consultation and Professional Development Box.
