Our world is broken. The effects of this are seen in natural disasters, governments and unjust systems, relational conflicts, sickness & death, and even in our own hearts and minds.
No matter what caused your current struggle, the power of the Spirit, communion with Jesus, and the wisdom of Scripture pour out healing and transformation for a hurting heart.
At the intersection of spiritual formation and mental health is what we sometimes call Soul Care. There are lots of resources for our bodies and minds, but sometimes we forget our souls. Hard seasons of life can make us feel like we are lost in the wilderness. Yet, scripture tells us God draws near when his people suffer. When reality falls short of what you expected and hoped for, I am here to walk with you in that gap and help you find a way forward with God.
“The love of Christ for me will get last say. He is merciful to me for his name’s sake, for the sake of his own goodness, for the sake of his steadfast love and compassion (Psalm 25). When he thinks about me, he remembers what he is like, and that is my exceeding joy. My indestructible hope is that he has turned his face towards me, and he will never turn away.”
Like many people, I’ve walked through loss on multiple occasions. Through those experiences, I developed a passion for the foundational importance of clinging to the hope we have in Jesus when all else fails.
I live in the Cedar Hills area with my husband and our two daughters through adoption. We round our family out with Olaf, a fluffy schnoodle. In my oh-so-valued (I’m sure you can relate!) spare time I love reading, making music, pilates reformer, and (pre-COVID at least) brunching around Portland.
