About Me

Welcome!
It takes courage to reach out for help and I am glad you are here.
There are many facets of life that influence personal well-being. These may include the many experiences we have in life, both positive and negative. How we respond to these experiences can help unlock a deeper understanding of ourselves, as well as provide an opportunity for change. This includes clarity around Christian values of purpose and focus, understanding of personal values and goals as well as exploring spiritual, financial and relational domains that influence decision-making.
My approach in counseling is one of unconditional positive regard. I believe that the best opportunity for change occurs when we feel comfortable and accepted in a non-judgmental environment. I utilize attachment theory with an understanding of the impact of early life events across the lifespan. I also see the benefit of incorporating strong problem-solving skills in the step-by-step process of attaining personal goals.
I have over 30 years of counseling experience across the lifespan. It is my hope that engaging in counseling will give you the freedom and peace you desire, help you gain control over unhelpful thoughts, learn patience with yourself and others with the ultimate goal of living a fulfilling and happy life.

She’s very helpful so far. Grateful for a listening ear, but also is giving practical steps to help me identify and move forward.
