I have extensive experience with individual therapy, working for substance use treatment centers, and working at various psychiatric hospitals. I have worked in roles including Behavioral Health Tech, Case Management, Primary Therapist, and Clinical Supervisor. I have worked with age groups ranging from young children to geriatrics. I prefer to work with adults of all ages with all types of substance use histories/mental health issues. I firmly believe that in order to help someone, you have to understand them. In order to understand someone, you require personal life experience to truly understand where they are coming from. I am very passionate about what I do. People have asked me previously if I enjoy what I do. I inform them that in my perspective, this is what I "designed" to be. There is no "taking off the therapy hat" for me - this is simply who I am and my purpose. You will learn very quickly how dedicated I am to serving people. I have I near eidetic memory and am well-versed in both DSM-IV and DSM-5 (the manuals used to diagnose someone). I have dedicated approximately 29 years of my life to this. Many clients throughout the years told me in their words that I am the "best therapist" they ever had. I encourage you to hire me and judge for yourself. I was entered into two international honor societies (top 15% of students in the field across the span of 8 countries with a flawless 4.0 GPA).

I am a professional characterized by her humanism and vocation for service who firmly believes that the good life is a process, not a state of being, it is a direction, not a destination. Therapy is a path to self-knowledge. Therapy helps to redefine problems and see them as opportunities, learning. You need to be brave to enter the path of therapy, you need commitment and willingness, only then will you see results.

Have you had enough yet? I can help you identify ways to improve your confidence as you struggle through coping with family, career, anxiety, depression, or identity issues. I have worked in teens and adults in three different states over the past 30 years. Identifying small steps to take in order to achieve larger goals, identifying what is important to focus on today versus letting go of the past or waiting until the future are also areas I can assist. I believe the only way to truly achieve change is through consistent small steps overtime. I am a LMHC, wife, stepmom, mother-in-law, sister, daughter, friend, supervisor, and Beagle mom. I could be your next therapist, that choice is up to you.

Welcome! As many of us know the modern world can be a frantic place, one where demands are constant, and space is limited. In therapy you have a chance to pause and take stock, to become more aware of our feelings and to re-examine the choices we are making in a reflective and constructive way. I aim to provide a supportive relationship within which my clients can safely explore and better understand themselves and their relationships. I take an active role in helping people investigate a broader range of options than at first may appear and invite them to expand the limits of their imagination. I wish to encourage confidence and resilience in managing feelings of doubt or despair, and to help find a positive and affirming way ahead. My clients consist of children, adolescents and young adults experiencing roadblocks from emotional turmoil to family stressors and communication issues affecting that satisfaction and joy we all strive for. Like most people, we want to lead a life of significance and balance, and we know we are meant for more. You don't have to experience this alone with the right support you will learn that happiness is not a mysterious force it is the result of a set of skills that anyone can learn. Working together we will improve on positive emotional well-being and getting to your comfort zone.
