Are you being led by your spirit or your wound?

I'll help you unpack the burdens you are carrying.

We are all wounded, each and every one of us. Our wounds affect us in many different ways, often causing us suffering and distress, but this does not have to be the end. God designed us to walk with one another and find healing through relationship, He designed us to lead one another into the light of Truth and find the peace and clarity that can only come from being led by the Spirit. This is the beautiful gift that I hope to bring you through mentorship.

“Love is our true destiny. We do not find the meaning of life by ourselves alone – we find it with another.” - Thomas Merton

For nearly 10 years I have walked with people in the depths of their woundedness, whether that be through homelessness, old age, childhood trauma, marital discord, or simply the difficulty of just being human. During this time, I learned a lot as a therapist, mother, friend, and daughter, but there is one thing I learned for certain– we cannot heal if we separate ourselves from our true design and destiny. Through mentorship, I will see you as God created you - body, mind, and soul. With the help of God’s grace I will walk with you as you work toward restoring and deepening your relationship with God, self, and others, finding the peace and clarity He desires for you through a healing relationship.

the world needs a catholic standard of mental health

“Everyone, in fact, especially those who have heeded the divine call to follow Christ closely, needs to be accompanied personally by a guide reliable in doctrine and expert in the things of God”

~Pope Benedict XVI

what we do here...


Integrated Mentorship

We know how God made you, why you're stuck, and how to get you unstuck

The mentorship model I provide allows me to walk with you in full view of your whole humanity- your body, mind, and SPIRIT. We are trained by the CatholicPsych Model to understand you through the lens of Faith, Reason, and Science. This is the ONLY way to really know you, and how to help you.

A Daily Model

Accompaniment modeled after Christ should meet you in the context of your daily life, just like He does.

We help you understand and experience the work of God in your life. And even if you struggle with, or don't even believe in God, we can help you to experience how Goodness, Truth, and Beauty are pursuing you in the context of your lived life. You don't have to compartmentalize your "self-care" away from the rest of your life - I'll be with you every day, to walk with you as you are making your way through whatever real challenges are presented to you.



Covering all the bases

If you're having a human experience, I can help you

Whether you are struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, addiction, or other typical mental health related issues, are looking for support and clarity in vocation-related struggles or discernment, are simply feeling burned out where you're at in life, or want to go deeper and reach further along your path to holiness and happiness, the Catholic model I practice from will help you.

What are your qualifications? 

I am CPMAP Certified through the CatholicPsych Institute and was part of the inaugural class of their mentorship program. The CPMAP model integrates current psychological studies (such as Internal Family Systems (IFS)) and is grounded on solid Catholic anthropology to fully understand the human person.

Additionally, I have received a Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and have worked in a variety of mental health settings. I have advanced training in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) to work with couples and have been further trained in the models of Internal Family Systems (IFS) and Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP). 

Although I hold a license to practice therapy, mentorship is not therapy and does not include diagnosis, nor does it take the place of medical advice or sacramental care. Nevertheless, I am eager to walk with you as you find healing and freedom from all that is hindering you from being who God created you to be.  

What exactly is Mentorship?

Mentorship (technically called Integrated Daily Dialogic Mentorship, or IDDM) is neither traditional counseling nor spiritual direction, but occupies a unique space in between those two fields. Mentorship is daily accompaniment, looking at you and your story as an integrated whole, examined at your pace, with the goal of finding happiness and holiness in your life.
