As a natural peacemaker, my life and specialized training has focused on how to find resolutions, if not some form of reconciliation, in seemingly irreconcilable conflicts, whether between people (inter-personal) or within themselves (intra-personal).
With an undergrad in theology and a specialization in youth ministry, my early vocation involved encouraging people through various ministerial leadership and pastoral roles. Today, I carry those fifteen plus years as a balanced collaborator within diverse individual and relational circumstances. I continue to help individuals, couples, families and groups looking for a sense of peace identify and work through underlying needs and issues in a safe and accessible environment.
Respecting all walks of life, regardless of faith and identity, I operate out of the desire to support constructive conversations that aid adjustments, expand perspective and inspire growth through authentic connections, acceptance, and hope.
