With over 35 years in the trenches of marriage, raising a large family, and working, I have a vast array of experience in almost every age and every stage of life. From toddlers to teenagers, young adults to aging parents, I understand that life can be hard, relationships can be painful, and stress can be overwhelming. Sometimes all we need is for someone to be our “bridge over troubled water.” I will be that bridge for you.

As you choose to take a realistic look at where you’ve been, where you are now, and where you want to be, you can begin making the changes, one day at a time, that will take you closer to realizing your full potential. I will be on your side helping you discover all the ways you were meant to shine. Together we can make peace with your past, find joy in the present, and bring clarity to your future. Hope and healing are at the heart of what I do.

As a newly licensed resident in counseling, strength-based and person-centered therapy is my focus. My professional experience has included working with survivors of interpersonal and sexual violence as well as trauma, anxiety and depression.
