My husband and I love raising our two elementary school age kids in the Vail Valley. During the warmer months, our lives revolve around the rivers, and during the cold ones, the ski slopes. (We secretly love the quiet of the shoulder season too.) I feel most alive when I am outside exploring and adventuring with people that I love.
My experience over the past fifteen years includes Christian Counseling, International Adoption, Women’s Ministry, and Community Mental Health. I have had the chance to use who I am as a counselor in some amazing places around the world including China, Chile, Croatia, Turkey, and for the past ten years, the Vail Valley.

Whether I am working with kids, parents, or individuals, I believe that each person has a good story to live. It is a privilege to be trusted with parts of people’s stories, to help hold painful and confusing pieces, and to see redemption and restoration happen in living life more authentically and fully. Life is a gift, change is possible, and hope exists.
