Counseling for Adults and Teens
I specialize in one-on-one individual pastoral counseling for adults and teens. I also specialize in working with members of the LGBTQ+ community—especially those struggling to reconcile their sexual orientation and their faith. If you grew up in a home, church, or community that was not affirming of who you are, it can be isolating and cause a lot of internal conflict. I want to help create a safe, sacred place where you can explore questions and concerns that you feel you were not allowed to express or explore in the past. In no way do I provide counseling that seeks to change a person's sexual orientation or identity.
I seek to be nonjudgmental and unshockable as a counselor. I am comfortable discussing difficult topics and have a passion to help others through the angst, struggle, and confusion that comes with life. I have a desire to help others after going through my own spiritual journey of healing and transformation.
Though my background and approach is centered on integrating spirituality with overall wellbeing, I welcome people of all faiths or non-faith. I want you to feel comfortable opening up about anything you are going through. I plan on sharing some insight and wisdom so you can find strength for today and hope for tomorrow.
I'm excited to be on this journey and am passionate about helping you weave a transformative story of your own. Counseling can empower you to work through life challenges, discover who you are called to be, and find strength for the journey ahead. I provide counseling at my office in Peoria or online. Send me a message—I look forward to meeting you and hearing your story.
