Why did you choose a career in counseling? I have a passion for walking my clients through their healing and growing processes. I chose to follow God at a young age, but God keeps pushing and growing me to love and trust him more everyday. I am so thankful that in this world we do not have to walk alone, he is always by our side. 


What do you like best about counseling?

I love the connection between the psychological and the spiritual. I chose to work with Abide to help people all around the world that want to grow. One of my favorite parts about Abide is that I can use my passion for God and helping others together. I am so thankful to work for a Christian network. 


How do you recharge on your day off? 

I currently am a pastors wife and enjoy spending time outdoors with my husband and our Australian shepherd Magnolia. I love walking, hiking and running thru God’s amazing creation.


What are your three favorite things?

Here’s more than three: Exploring, kayaking, yummy baked goods, family, and the smell and color of Fall months in Michigan.
