Everyone has felt the pain of betrayal, guilt, shame, rejection, and discouragement. Life and family interactions present challenges. You and your family are unique; but the issues and challenges you face are shared by others. We're human. We need to feel loved and supported. We need to enjoy life! But sometimes, life gets in the way. I am here to help you and your family successfully manage and overcome life's challenges and seize life's opportunities. I believe that hope for the future, healing from the past and the ability to enjoy everyday life is possible and occurs in the context of healthy relationships.
I also believe that the success of our communities begins in the home of individual families. I possess 20 plus years experience assisting children, youth, families and older adults identify and achieve their vision of personal & family success. I utilize a holistic approach and a strength based, non-judgmental perspective to help you be the best you!
Your situation is not hopeless and what you are experiencing can be the motivator for positive change. I will help you identify your strengths, skills, resources and support systems that can enable you to achieve the vision you have for your life and your family. It is my goal to empower you with hope, healing and healthier relationships!

I work with women across the life span to help create a life she loves. As women our identities are often overwhelmed in our roles as caregivers to others; leaving little time or motivation to discover who we are, what we need and how to become the best version of ourselves. A typical treatment plan will help you discover meaning, fulfillment and a life you can embrace without guilt, or shame.
