Searching for help is a courageous first step to change. You may be feeling anxious or depressed. Are you looking for support in changing addictive behaviors from a non-judgmental approach? Perhaps you have experienced traumatic events that have left you feeling "stuck." Or maybe you have relationship issues and aren't sure where to go from here. Many of my clients have experienced grief and loss and simply need support working through the stages of grief. I have also served children and families. Whatever your needs, there IS hope.

I enjoy working with families and children and have done so in one capacity or another for 25 years. It was while I was working in the field of addictions that I realized how the family system influences and shapes us. I joined the American Association of Christian Counselors in 1998 and like to incorporate my faith in the counseling process. I am a foster and adoptive parent, which lead to my interest in attachment and trauma issues. I provide therapy for anxiety, depression, co-dependency, sexual abuse and addictions, as well as play therapy for children with behavior problems.

We all experience bumps and bruises throughout our lives. When those bumps and bruises become too much to handle it can be very difficult to reach out for comfort and help, not knowing where to turn. It can make you feel defeated, helpless, and isolated. You don't deserve to walk through life just surviving day-to-day. I believe in meeting my clients where they are at in life, wherever that may be, and helping them to learn how heal and grow so they no longer are just surviving, but able to fully live their lives. I work from an open-minded, non-judgmental framework and believe in a true therapeutic partnership with my clients.
