More information :



I believe that the process of healing begins through authentic and vulnerable connection with another. My counseling orientation is informed by attachment theory and the relational psychodynamic therapeutic model which looks at patterns of relating from early life up to the present. I offer genuine involvement where there is an ongoing invitation to explore deep issues and concerns. In order to grow one’s ability to engage distress and discord within oneself and with other people, I believe that a relational model offers direction in entering resistant places for the potential of personal healing and development. 

I named my practice Soul Sunrise Counseling because I believe that taking the risk to enter our pain in the name of healing can lead to a reawakening of our spirit and re-engagement of relationships in a new way.

Additionally, my Christian beliefs influence the manner in which I view the therapeutic profession. I am impacted by the worth which God ascribes to each individual, and my interactions with clients hopefully will demonstrate that they are valuable and loved. I believe that counseling can be an incredibly supportive tool where there is hope for change and greater love.
