So when you cower before this Me, I may talk softly to you, I might even whisper in your ear tenderly. So long as you are an obedient slave, I am a happy Goddess.
For the last thirteen years, I’ve had the privilege of walking with people through the difficult places in their life.
I’m passionate about doing good therapy, offering both genuine care and gentle challenge. When I’m not counseling, my joys include spending time with my husband, Pete, my son, Nathan, and my daughter Abby. A quick stop at Covenant Theological Seminary led to studies in beautiful, downtown Saint Louis University where I earned two degrees, a Masters degree in Educational Counseling, and a Ph. A.), and grew a non-profit organization called Cross Roads Christian Counseling, the business that thinks like a mission.
I’m also a sucker for animals, especially ones with kissable faces. You can find the paperwork you need to fill out initially here. Twenty-seven years in this chair, but the journey feels fresh, this desire to be more.
In addition to my individual work with adults, children, and teens, I facilitate Wounded Heart groups at our South City office, where I serve as team leader. You can find the paperwork you need to fill out initially here.
My passion for helping others has grown out of my own journey to find laughter and love in the midst of pain and brokenness.
I will only consider applicants who have a sincere desire to please, intelligent, enthusiastic and open minded. The image you built, the social status you try so hard to maintain, doesn't mean anything to Me.
I take pleasure in reminding you of who you are, and you thank Me.
Recently, Cross Roads invited me to put together a therapeutic playroom, giving children the tools they need to communicate their inner world. While I take great satisfaction in my work, my greatest thrill is sharing life with my husband, Mike, and nurturing our three lively daughters, Zoe, Mia, and Evi.Chesterfield Presbyterian (PCA) is our church home.I specialize in marital issues, extreme marital issues, family dilemmas, parenting teens, leadership & problem-solving, sexual abuse, Asperger’s in adults, and working with church workers. Louis, not-St.-Louis (using Skype), and occasionally travel overseas to assist missionaries.This allowed me to begin to understand both the glory and the brokenness in my story. I have been working full time as the Director of Middle School ministry at Central Presbyterian Church for the past 7 years and have a combined total of 13 years in the field. in the USMC for 8 years enlisting right after high school and eventually went on to also obtain a MA in Counseling from Covenant Theological Seminary in 2008.I developed a passion for youth ministry and went on to get a B.
