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. 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 found that God is still good even when everything else isn’t. Jesus is my hope when all else fails and he has never let me down. My own experiences with loss and struggles shape my work and I come alongside you as one who can relate.
I live in the Cedar Mill area of Portland with my husband and teenaged daughters. Most days you’ll find me squeezing in time to read on my back patio or in front of the fireplace next to our fluffy schnoodle, Olaf. I also enjoy making music, brunching around Portland, and navigating my ever-evolving relationship with working out.
