Kintsugi is the Japanese art form of repairing pottery with gold, artfully piecing the shards together again and understanding that the piece is more beautiful for having been broken. In many ways, our lives reflect this delicate artistry. Each of us carries within us a unique story, one that has shaped us in profound ways.
Just as the art of Kintsugi reveals the beauty in broken pottery, I will strive to help you recognize your inner strength and the beauty that can emerge from your own life story. I seek to honor your courage in the counseling process by offering a safe and secure place where honesty and vulnerability can thrive. Instilling hope and fostering personal responsibility are vital aspects of this work, and it is my deepest privilege to walk alongside you as you pursue health and wellness in your life.
I received my Master of Arts in Counseling from Lincoln Christian University and am a trauma-informed therapist who is equipped to utilize a range of evidenced-based approaches. I love to collaborate with my clients and will tailor my methods to address your specific needs. I am also a lover of the arts and can utilize poetry/music/prose as a pathway for healing. By exploring one’s inner world through creative means, we can uncover insights, discover new perspectives, and foster deeper self-understanding.
You are made in the image of God and your story matters. Together we can navigate the pieces of your story as you move towards a more hopeful, fulfilling, and authentic life.
