Announcement icon I am providing HIPAA compliant video and phone conferencing sessions only during this time.
Let's rediscover your happiness - or redefine it. Let's evolve stale relationships; generate meaningful experiences at work; introduce more peace and control at home. Wherever you are struggling, I help you create a new lense through which you will gain insight into your thought patterns and behaviors and ultimately feel better. I earned my Masters degree in both clinical/community and school counseling, and a Masters degree in secondary education. I taught for 11 years, incorporating much adolescent, group, and family counseling during that time. I have expanded to counseling individuals and couples of all ages, including families.
Learning what makes you unique - what lights up your eyes and brings you joy - and helping you become the best version of yourself in ALL areas of your life is one of my greatest passions. I'm thankful my passion is also my reality as an empathic, solutions-focused counselor and experienced teacher. Insight. Growth. Harmony. Healing. Strength. Are you ready?
Together, we will learn your strengths, become mindful of and make sense of your emotions - you are feeling them for a reason - what are they trying to tell you? You hold the answers within you. I look forward to working with you. Morning and early afternoon appointments available. Welcome!
