I am a counselor, but not immune to problems. Like so many, I have been disconnected from my spouse. I have experienced the devastation of miscarriage and infertility, followed by the ultimate joy, frustration, and inadequacy of being a parent. As a result, holding hope for my clients comes naturally because I personally understand the sweetness and contentment of reconnecting with my spouse, the joy and happiness that children provide, and the value and benefit of working on personal challenges.
I am a firsthand believer in the power of therapy, from both a counselor and client standpoint, and have worked hard throughout my life by engaging in individual, couples and family therapy. Empathy is anchored in my practice because I have faced many challenges throughout my life, and I understand that we are all trying to do our best.
For the past 10 years my professional experience has included counseling families, couples and individuals who have experienced trauma and childhood attachment wounds. I have advanced training in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and have spent the past four years honing my practice focus to couples and adult individuals.
I am an adoring mom of two boys, and I have been with my husband for over 18 years. In my free time I enjoy hiking, cooking, reading, spending time with my family, and binge watching the latest TV series with my husband (and always open to show recommendations).
