About Us


Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor

It is a joy and a passion to help adults, adolescents, and couples have more fulfilling lives. I believe it is important to show people that you care by treating them with kindness and respect. I especially enjoy helping people who are survivors of trauma. I specialize in working with people suffering from depression, anxiety, the harmful effects of childhood neglect, emotional and sexual abuse. In addition, I am passionate about marriage and enjoy helping couples work through challenges in their relationship.

I am the founder of Speak Life Christian Counseling and Coaching, LLC, where our mission is to help you find hope, encouragement, and the strength to Begin to Live Again. I graduated with honors from Ashland Theological Seminary, with a Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling (MACMHC). I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor with Supervision Designation (LPCC-S), a National Certified Counselor (NCC), a Certified Clinical Mental Health Counselor (CCMHC) and a Chemical Dependency Counselor Assistant (CDCA) practicing in the State of Ohio. My memberships include the American Counseling Association (ACA), American Association of Christian Counselors (AACC) and Chi Sigma Iota (CSI) Counseling Academic & Professional Honor Society International.

My clinical experience includes working as an inpatient and intensive outpatient therapist at a mental health hospital where I counseled patients diagnosed with severe mood and anxiety disorders, substance use disorders, stress-related disorders, personality disorders and psychotic disorders. I taught inpatient and outpatient psychotherapy groups to help patients and their families to better understand their diagnosis, to help them identify and utilize healthy coping skills in order to reduce clinical symptoms and to improve their overall mental health. My experience in private practice as a mental health counselor includes the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of mood and anxiety disorders, personality and behavioral disorders, substance use disorders, stress-related disorders, and relationship issues for adults, adolescents, and couples. As a clinical supervisor, I train and mentor new counselors in best practices. I enjoy working with new clinicians to help them learn and implement professional behavior and competence, identify objectivity, consider ethical considerations in clinical care, and to implement and maintain good self-care.

I have over 20 years’ experience working in Christian church leadership. I have been the keynote speaker at various women's conferences and events. I have written and taught Bible studies for women, conducted leadership mentoring groups and training classes for diverse groups of people and served as a ministry leader and coach for single parents.
