I have been part of the NWF Panhandle community since 1988. As a result, much of my work has been with people struggling with the anxiety and depression brought on by adjusting to everyday changes, including military life and sudden, unforeseen weather disasters. I work with couples trying to navigate through communication problems, parents raising young adolescents and teenagers leaving the nest. As an Army "Brat" and an (Ret.) Air Force Wife, I have a personal understanding of the difficulties this population faces.

I work from the Cognitive Behavioral Theory. Events occur around us. We can't control external events. They generate our thoughts. It's your self-talk that forms your feelings. You have power over what you say to yourself. Therapy is about learning coping skills to reframe that self-talk.

I am a provider for most insurance companies. My practice at St. Simon's allows me to see insurance clients, as well as offer sliding scale and scholarship opportunity to others. The office is located on Miracle Strip Parkway SW (Hwy 98), convenient to Navarre, Destin, Niceville and Crestview.
