Christian Women Seeking Change
Did you enter marriage with a desire to be a biblically submissive wife and now find yourself feeling lonely in your marriage, more like a roommate than a wife? Do you feel like you’re alone in parenting your children? Did your relationship with a desire to be cherished and intimately understood by your husband, but now feels disconnected and lonely? Can you even remember the hopeful woman you used to be? You don’t have to continue living this way.
As a pastor and a licensed marriage and family therapist, I can help you to explore your current circumstances, examine your values, and begin to make changes that encourage better communication and boundaries with your husband and others. In sessions alone or with your husband, we can identify and implement changes that help move your relationship from feeling lonely to connected and fulfilling. Call me at (480) 648-8183 to schedule your appointment.

Couples/Families Facing Medical Concerns
Have you or a loved one been given a diagnosis that has rocked your world? Is your family struggling to make sense of the changes that are necessary to accommodate the needs of an ill family member? Are you questioning your faith and God’s goodness in the face of despair, possible death or disability? Are you rebelling against the labels that come with a diagnosis?
My family and I have fought through the changes associated with a devastating diagnosis and worsening symptoms. As a wheelchair user, I know what it’s like to look different and be treated as less competent or unable. I can assist your family to discuss the impact of the diagnosis, really hear one another, and see your situation from each other’s perspective. We can strategize how best to minimize the destructive impact of a medical diagnosis and maximize your strengths. Call me at (480) 648-8183 for a free 15 minute consultation.
