Life is messy. That’s the motto I adopted a few years ago to remind myself that there is no such thing as perfect and rarely does everything go according to plan. My journey has taken me through a variety of messes…divorce, single parenting , job changes, remarriage and the blending of families, just to name a few. Although this isn’t the path that I planned to take, I am thankful for each step because of the healing and growth that accompanied it and ultimately led me to pursue my master’s degree in family and marriage therapy.

I'm a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor with extensive training and experience with relationship issues, depression, domestic problems, child & adolescent behavior problems, & parenting issues.
Our world has changed radically in a very short time. The pandemic has created new problems and magnified existing ones. Our interactions with others, even within our families, have changed out of necessity. We live with uncertainty, fear, and anxiety. The "normal" that we knew before, has changed. Stress has taken on bigger proportions. Our mental health, our sense of security may be severely taxed. For this reason, I provide telehealth sessions through Zoom No need to come to an office for counseling when we can still "meet" face-to-face. Call to set up an appointment. I look forward to hearing from you!

While I am skilled in working with a wide variety of clients, I most enjoy working with children, teens and adults who struggle with authority figures and themselves. I enjoy helping clients learn to know they are loved and heard. They often feel like they do not have a voice and they rebel because it has been more successful then being respectful to authority figures. The goals for the client would be learning to manage and express their feelings while learning to be respectful to one self and then respectful to others. The child's parents would learn and use positive parenting skills to help instill child's goals.

Rooted in a Family Systems approach, I have experience with depression, anxiety, loss/grief, life changes, infidelity, relational distress, blended families, co- parenting and stress management.
At any time in our lives, we may experience distance between where we are and where we'd like to be. Obstacles can sometimes stand in our way, and prevent us from achieving and living the life that we long for. I work with individuals and couples in a collaborative process to explore these obstacles, and to challenge old patterns and beliefs that may no longer be necessary, while finding new ways of thinking and living. With much compassion and understanding, I work with clients to facilitate healing and growth, grounded in a desire to empower others to achieve their goals, and to be brave, while deeply-rooted in hope.
