"As a retired school counselor with extensive background in dealing with substance abuse issues, I am best positioned to assist clients with difficulties related to social, academic or behavioral issues. I am particularly attuned to the ways in which parenting styles impact upon the functioning of children and to the most efficient ways of creating change to promote the likeliness of a person's or family's success and happiness. At times, these are most effectively addressed through an examination and fostering of an individual's goal-setting and motivation and how these may encumber his or her movement on the path to future satisfaction."

"When I show up with a client, I bring empathy, wholeheartedness, and a commitment to build a safe and trusting relationship. What I love most about my work is helping folks feel in order to heal. My goal for my clients is to help them live a life of value and to feel they have the tools and skills they need to “live a life worth living,” as DBT founder Marsha Linahan says. I want my clients to know their worth, their value, and that they’re brave, so they can live lives full of love, belonging, and acceptance. I want to give them the skills to explore, the heals to heal, and the confidence to be. "
