Having been married for 31+ years and raising two children, I have experienced the joys and grief of parenthood. The teen years can be both difficult and challenging and I am passionate about my work with these young people. I also realize what a privilege it is to have parents entrust their child to me. The responsibility is huge, and I take it very seriously. I have found by offering young people a safe and secure environment where they can be totally transparent with no fear of being judged is the foundation where healing begins.

While I find working with teens to be rewarding, I am equally passionate about working with individuals, couples and families facing a diagnosis of cancer. As a cancer survivor, I can empathize with the emotions that come with a diagnosis of cancer as well as the mental and physical devastation.

Although I specialize in working with teens and cancer survivors, I have a vast amount of experience in working with individuals from all walks of life in areas including but not limited to anxiety, depression and abuse.
