I have come to understand that I am very interested in hearing the personal stories of peoples lives. I have a deep desire for people to experience hope and find understanding especially in the difficult places in which they find themselves.
My first degree was centered around vocal performance in music. I still enjoy singing very much, but my passion now is in helping others. That’s why I decided to go back to school for my master’s in professional counseling.
My counseling desire is to create a warm, trusting, and hopeful environment where you and I can grow as individuals. I incorporate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution-focused Therapy, Mindfulness, and psycho-education to work with individuals dealing with anxiety, grief, and depression. I also offer counseling for couples interested in marital counseling. In addition, I am certified in Prepare and Enrich for premarital/marital assessment.
I have been married for 37 years to a wonderful man and we have 3 adult children, one grandchild, and an elderly cat. In my pastime, I enjoy being with family, playing games, gardening, walking/hiking, and reading.
