My Story

When I was in high school I began to explore my past experiences of brokenness, abuse, anger, and rejection. It wasn't until my junior year in college that I made the commitment to the field of psychology. Admittedly, I pursued my degree in part to better understand my own experiences. I found that trauma was at the heart of my experience as well as many others. Through the years I have noticed the gap between trauma and theology. I decided to pursue a biblical degree to contribute to the research in a meaningful way.
