I always knew I wanted to get into a career path that would make a difference in people’s lives. This interest led me to earn a bachelor’s degree in nursing. After graduating from Wichita State University with a bachelor’s in science in Nursing, I moved to Denver, Colorado to work as an RN on a medical/surgical unit at The Children’s Hospital. I lead psycho/social rounds with nurses, doctors, and staff to help them process their job’s emotional strain. I became more interested in psychology at that time and pursued getting my counseling degree.
After graduating with a master’s degree in counseling from Denver Seminary, I began my counseling career atSouthwest Counseling in Littleton, Colorado. In 1998, I moved to Northwest Arkansas to be closer to my family and began working at John Brown University in their counseling department and teaching master’s level relationship classes. I realized my passion to start my own private practice. I wanted a place where people can experience understanding and empathy, but also learn tools to courageously grow. So, in 2005 I founded Grace Counseling Service LLC in Fayetteville, Arkansas and is now expanding to a second location in Estes Park, Colorado.
