A LITTLE ABOUT ME


I realize that it can be uncomfortable at times to meet with a counselor. I know, because I am a private person, and I have needed the guidance of a counselor a few times in my life. It was hard to search for the right one, to make the appointment, to sit in the office, and to talk about myself and my struggle. Sometimes the counselor was a good fit, sometime not. But when I found the right person, the relief and help that I experienced was worth it all. I wouldn’t trade what I learned for anything in the world. I would like to be that person for you in your time of need.


I've always been fascinated with why people are they way they are, and do the things they do. That's why I've loved studying psychology so much. I've earned an AA and BA and Psychology, and a Master's in Marriage and Family Therapy. These programs helped me learn to understand not only the individual, but also how couples and families function together. My professional experience includes providing inpatient and outpatient mental health services to individuals, couples, children, and families for almost 20 years.


I've had some difficulties in my childhood and adult life that have taught me a lot too. And I have some unique experiences that have added breadth and depth to me as a person and a counselor. I have worked with gifted and special needs children and adults, and their families; and with the elderly (including Alzheimer’s) and their families. I have also worked with those with chronic mental illness, various addictions (substance and behavioral), chronic anxiety, and also trauma and PTSD with great success. My hope is that I can share with you what I’ve learned, provide genuine understanding, and professional guidance and counsel.


My training in Christian universities has helped me with providing bible-based counseling also (available upon request).


I hope to hear from you soon!
