About Me

I'm a therapist who enjoys helping others with concerns and issues they face, but I'm also a person who enjoys life, love, and the pursuit of happiness. May sound a little cliché-ish, but it's the truth. I live for being a happier, more fulfilled person; and want the same for my clients. Life gets messy and hard sometimes! So remembering that things get better with time, and self healing is so important; and helps to get you through many of those humps and dreary days. I'm here to help you learn new ways of finding you!  Channeling in to that amazing part of yourself you want to be, or used to be. Life is always changing, that's the only thing that's consistent. I’m ready for the journey, are you?!

Qualifications

Experience

I've helped individuals and family's in the field for about 20 years. I started out as an advocate for women primarily, but also men and children who had been sexually and emotionally abused, then in research (just trying to understand it all from a different perspective), then the plunge into therapy. I've enjoyed each aspect. Each step has shaped me as a person, and my understanding of the dynamics of people, their environment, and how we interact and relate to one another. This portion of the journey is by far my greatest enjoyment. Helping others learn not only about themselves, but how they want to take the next steps toward the life they are seeking.
