Biography

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and have been in the community mental health field for over 25 years. I have spent my professional career focused on trauma with children, adolescents, adults, and families in various areas of life including hospice, grief/loss, child abuse/neglect, substance abuse, parental alienation/termination of parental rights/family reintegration, juvenile justice, and sexual trauma. One of the things that I enjoy most about my work is being witness to my clients learning how to undo years of negative experiences and finding their hopeful path forward. I love hearing from previous clients when they reach out to share that our counseling journey has changed their life.

I recently relocated to this coastal area after spending my life in the midwest. I believe that happiness is a way of life and is created by the choices we make each day. I find that sand and water, along with sunshine, lift everyone’s spirit and I have fully embraced my access to these since moving to the area. I draw strength from practicing mindfulness and finding positives each day. I enjoy spending time with my amazing daughter and our loved ones, traveling, exploring new adventures, reading great books, and finding new opportunities for happiness. I’m looking forward to embracing this new life journey.
