Background

In my life I have been, and continue to be, a daughter, sister, sister-in-law, mom-in-law, aunt, cousin, Girl Scout, wife, mom, grandmom, public and private school teacher, church youth director, national and regional speaker, workshop and retreat facilitator, counselor, PTO president, volunteer mom, homeroom mom, field trip chaperon, and ... I'm sure I've worn a wide variety of other hats too! 

All of these "hats" have given me a wide range of experiences & insights in working with children, adolescents, couples, & adults.

I believe very strongly that healthy community and interpersonal interactions throughout life give us strength and provide us with the tools to live our lives to their fullest potential.  While most of us are blessed to have that community through our family, friends, schools, churches, and neighbors all of us can encounter a time when we need someone else who can provide assistance, insight, and guidance to make our lives easier and more fulfilling.  As a counselor, it is my hope to help each client find ways to make their life more productive and more fulfilling allowing them to reach their potential.
 
In my free time I love to travel, read, write, & cook for family & friends. I'm very blessed to have a wonderful life with my husband, our three fabulous children, our daughter-in-law, our granddaughter, a very sweet black lab, a very entertaining puppy, and a slightly deranged (but lovable) cat.
