Since graduating from Denver Seminary with a masters degree in Counseling, I have been working in the field of trauma. During this time, I have studied numerous methods, read countless books and articles, attended multiple workshops and seminars, and worked with hundreds of client to heal trauma. I have also worked towards including clinical and Christian principles to create the greatest potential for healing.
