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. At the time, I was an active Christian counselor working with clients and felt a sense of shame in admitting I needed personal help myself. At Life Ministries Today, I found a safe place to breath, be honest, and admit my needs. I spent several years exploring and uncovering age old struggles that were hindering me from living my life to the fullest. The Godly wisdom I received during this time was priceless, and the freedom I learned to be myself and love myself are a permanent part of who I am today.
I now serve on staff with Life Ministries Today as a lay counselor specifically for women. As a counselor, I feel my calling is to help encourage and equip women to live their most authentic lives in today’s world by supporting them in their ever-growing relationship with God.
I currently enjoy facilitating the Facing Forward small group program, as well as working with clients one-on-one dealing with the impact of abuse in their lives.
