It’s so cliche to say that life doesn’t always turn out like you want. We all know that. Yet there’s a part of us that still believes that if we put in the right kind of effort, it will at least look a little bit closer to our ideal. But, that’s not true either, because there are a million variables of which we have absolutely no control, even if we think we do! The variable that is probably the most complicated is that other thinking, feeling, autonomous person you are connected to. Add their brokenness to your brokenness, and the mess can get so out of control, you forgot what you were aiming for.
If you are looking at my site, I can pretty safely conclude you are fighting heartbreak in one of those relationships. You are discouraged, angry, tired of getting used or walk upon, lonely, scared, confused, unsure of your own gut instincts anymore, and maybe a little insane. You may be flailing desperately, or simply need better grounding. Possibly, even the people you’ve counted on to help have let you down, like your church. And you’re having a hard time finding somewhere solid and safe to turn to. Let me help. I’ve been there… in many ways I’m still there… and I know how to see a bigger picture and put one foot in front of the other.

Every season of life becomes a two-minute story you tell someday.
No matter how long and unbearable it might have felt at the time, you still boil your experiences down to a few sentences. Like a snapshot that speaks a thousand words.
Think about it! Tell me about your childhood. See, just a paragraph. What about college? Another paragraph. How about your first relationships or early marriage? You rattle off three or four more sentences.
This season you’re in right now might feel interminable. You don’t see an end. Every day is limbo in an abyss. Your heart won’t stop hurting, you wake up in panic, and hope is more elusive than your cat when she knows she’s getting a bath. You are afraid, feel worthless, don’t trust your own gut, and probably feel a little insane. You certainly wonder if you’re really as stupid as he says, as ugly as you feel, and as unlovable as he treats you.
But, I am living proof that even a season like that can become a five minute story in which you not only survive, you learn to thrive no matter what the resolution. (You can read more of my own personal story here to see what I mean.) And my mission now is to help you write a good ending to the story you’re in — to add emotional sobriety, stability, perspective and clarity, and healthy depth to your relationships in general. I help you create space to grow in your own giftedness and passions, recognizing your own value and ability to think (regardless of what anybody says!!). And I work hard to be a strong voice of encouragement to speak hope into your day.
All you need to do is ask!
