I came to Life Ministries as a client in the fall of 2009 looking for answers to a seasonal depression I had struggled with for many years. I found wisdom and understanding which led to tremendous freedom in my life. Since that time, I have partnered with Life Ministries serving on staff as a lay counselor for women. I have designed and lead Facing Forward, an 18-week recovery program for women impacted by sexual abuse. My passion for helping women stems from deep needs in my own life that have been overwhelmingly resolved through a close, trusting relationship with The Lord. My deepest desire as a counselor is to encourage women who struggle with living life in today’s world by educating and equipping them to live the abundant life God promises to us all.
