Faith Statement

I am a Christian counselor with a psychology degree from Calvin College, and a master's degree in social work from Grand Valley State University. I have been serving in my home church for eight years, providing discipleship to adolescents while leading a small group of students. As a clinical therapist, I have been providing counseling services to adolescents, families, and adults for the last four and a half years.

Living out my faith is a key aspect of my life. Extending Christ's compassion and mercy, while turning to His truth is a main focus of how I encourage and assist other believers. I believe that there is healing, peace, restoration, and freedom in Christ. Knowing your identity in Christ, and having the everlasting assurance of His truth, peace, and grace can assist with breaking the hold that can be created through the brokenness of this world. I would love to help you understand who you are in Christ, how to let go of the hurt and pain caused by sin and the brokenness of this world, and understand the truth of Christ and His word. I believe that some of our difficulties and hardships occur because of the enemy, and renouncing him and letting go of his lies, while replacing the lies with the Truth and Holy Spirit can help bring restoration.

I would like to use prayer, scripture, discussion of your faith or struggles, and intercession as a way to assist with your healing journey, and allow you to experience freedom in Christ.
