“The Lord will guide you always and satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame; you will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail” Isaiah 58:11
I count it a great privilege to share in the lives of others and walk with them as they contend with the trials and challenges that come their way. I understand the value of sound Biblical wisdom and the priceless guidance found in truths of the Word. My hope is that I may be a vessel used to help others find their way to peace and problem resolution, experiencing greater joy and becoming better equipped to cope with the ups and downs of life.

I’ve been married to my husband for 30 years, we are parents of four adult children and our two grandchildren bring us much joy! We enjoy spending time with family, reading, hiking, bicycling many outdoor activities. I find being in the great outdoors very therapeutic; a time where I can contemplate the Great Creator…who He is and how He is working in my life.
Areas of interest:
I especially enjoy working with new mothers experiencing post partum emotional concerns. I enjoy working with children and parents of any age children. I understand the challenges of depression and anxiety in a culture of ever increasing demands and expectations.
