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.

Counseling doesn’t have to be so uptight, am I right? I approach therapy in an informal, nonthreatening way. I’m happy to inspire a laugh—or to just lend an ear. I accept my clients as they are, but I also help them find the courage to transform into who they want to be. Life is too short to be anything but authentic. I spent 23 years as a newspaper feature writer before changing careers. I fully recognize that I’m no longer the author of someone else’s story. Rather, I want my clients to look at the narrative of their lives and decide, for themselves, the direction their own story takes. I only hope to facilitate the process.

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 people who are at some kind of crossroads in their lives. There's a problem to be resolved, a decision to make, a change that needs to happen. Sometimes we all need a compassionate listener and an honest, candid guide on the path to making our next move in life. I prefer a collaborative approach, working together to reach resolution.

I place a large emphasis on understanding an individual's relationships and view the therapy relationship as the primary vehicle for change. I believe that through the therapy relationship individuals can work through difficult emotions, learn adaptive information/skills, and increase self-knowledge in order to achieve positive change in their life.

You do you! As a therapist I utilize expressive arts and experiential therapies to help you examine and work through the issues you are having, and in a way that works for you as an individual. Anxiety and depression often respond well to experiential therapies. Let's dig in and get our hands dirty. I'll be right beside you! I provide counseling to individuals, families and group therapy. I offer school based services for students, and can also provide family therapy.
