Attending Colorado Christian University was an exceptional experience. I gained insight into my own spiritual walk as well as expanding my knowledge and understanding of the spiritual life. This understanding permitted me to ask myself, “How do I honor the person I am created to be?” Joyful Soul Counseling was my answer. Therapy is also my passion. My personal journey, like many of you, has been a mixed series of challenges and profound blessings. It has required me to evaluate myself and search out who I am. I had to ask and answer, the tough questions, “Am I being genuine within my own walk?” “Am I doing everything I can to be the best me I can be? I strive to be a person of integrity while setting and obtaining necessary and desirable goals. I practice compassion and completely understand progress takes time.
I desire to provide you the opportunity to build a therapeutic relationship that nurtures growth, healing and hope while learning to experience true joy. True joy is essential to our well-being as human beings. And, being an essential, therefore is attainable.
Joy is not dependent on our circumstances. It is deeper and a more multifaceted essential to our well-being as human beings. Joy moves past our emotions and births the seed of joy deep within us. Allow yourselves to move through the emotions and connect with the source of true joy, it will remain and shine in the darkest hours.
A Genuine and Compassionate Experience.
Offering appropriate counseling for those places in life that are unknown, painful, unmanageable or full of fear, is a priority for me. Targeting a diversity of addictions with both men and women is the foundation of Joyful Soul Counseling. It has given me the privileged opportunity to witness first-hand, true growth and constructive change that enables people to develop into the cherished individuals God created them to be.
- Discover trigger points and circumstances that manifest anxiety, depression, and addictions,
- Improve mental health, traumatic memories, and control issues.
- Special needs parenting. Having a child with special needs I have learned to manage my self-care in new ways and find methods to seek joy rather than be consumed by the struggles that are faced daily. The overwhelming sense of not being able to take away a child's challenges has taught me let go of the control I never really had.
