I deeply enjoy connecting with adolescents and children. I have 7 younger siblings whose ages currently range from early adolescence to adulthood. From the time my parents divorced several years ago, I have become a mentor for several of my siblings and remain closely connected to them. In addition to my clinical training, my sibling relationships have given me years of personal experience working with children and adolescents and their varying personalities and responses as they experienced hard things.

I believe in the words of Eckhart Tolle, "If you get the inside right, the outside will fall into place." We all have stories and backgrounds that shape us and our perspectives on the world. We also have innate abilities within us to overcome obstacles to experience transformation, self-actualization and growth. What an honor it is to walk alongside my clients as they nurture and empower this inner strength by identifying and addressing the roots, by gaining acceptance and awareness, and by changing core beliefs and behavior, ultimately leading to a life filled with sustainable serenity, purpose and meaning.

It's nice to meet you! As a Licensed Professional Counselor at Gilbert Counselors LLC, I draw equally from my professional training and the insights I've gained throughout my 30+ year marriage and experiences raising two now-grown children. I think most of us would agree that we're living in challenging times. Many of us feel anxious and pessimistic about the future. We may feel unable to draw pleasure and comfort from our most important relationships or stuck in destructive patterns we believe we're powerless to change. Some of us are facing difficult life transitions or overpowering feelings of loneliness and isolation.
