Thank you for visiting our website and learning more about the services we offer. I'd like to introduce myself by sharing a little about my education, work experience, and reasons for choosing this career.

Many years ago I was blessed with the opportunity to volunteer at a crisis pregnancy center. My role was to be a big sister to young girls who had made the brave choice to have their babies and either parent or work on an adoption plan. As I got to know these girls and walked along side them on this journey, God gave me a passion for walking through difficult circumstances with people and gave me a glimpse of what a career in counseling might look like.

Several years later in 2001 I finished my Masters of Arts degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Bethel Seminary. I am grateful for my education and all the amazing instructors who devoted so much time and their talents to the students. At Bethel I learned how to look at challenging life struggles through the lense of God's word and help people to know and trust Jesus as their savior and source of help in their circumstances.

After finishing school I worked for 2 years helping children and teens in the foster care system. In late 2002 my husband completed his career in the US Navy, we return to Fort Collins. I continued my goal of building a counseling practice focusing on helping families; in particular children, adolescents and individual women.

I have been licensed in the State of Colorado since 2007 and started Eleos Christian Couseling Services in 2010. I am networked with several insurance companies and many employee assistance programs.
