Foundations Family Resource Center's goal is to provide counseling and resources to families on the Kenai Peninsula.
Foundations believes their role is to help facilitate growth in individuals, couples, and families by drawing on their strengths, resources, and past experiences. The process of growth and health in individuals incorporates identifying and understanding the different relational variables, past or present, that are affecting their lives. This process acknowledges people's individual spiritual resources as a strength in which to handle their difficult circumstances.

Thanks for taking the time to learn more about me. I received my High School diploma from Cook Inlet Academy. I graduated Valedictorian in 2000. In High School I was active in Cross Country running, Basketball, and Track & Field. Sports were instrumental in teaching me core principles that helped propel me in life and in business.
I attended the University of Alaska Anchorage as a UA Scholar. I graduated in 2005 with a B.A. in Psychology. Afterwards I applied and was accepted to George Fox University's graduate program in Marriage and Family Therapy. I graduated in 2008 with a M.A. in Marriage and Family Therapy. While in graduate school I interned at the Domestic Violence Resource Center in Hillsboro, Oregon. At DVRC I received extensive training and experience in working with survivors of domestic violence. In the fall of 2008 I opened Foundations Family Resource Center in Soldotna, Alaska. Foundations' goal is to provide support for individuals, couples, and families through resources, counseling, and seminars. I named Foundations with the desire to see families provided with "foundational" principles to help support and empower them to raise future generations. When families have the necessary tools, they are better capable of raising conscientious and active citizens who will benefit the entire community, as well as, their own homes.
