I work with individuals of all ages. My specialties are relational healing, effective communication, and setting boundaries. I also help individuals in life transitions, teaching coping skills as they navigate through difficult times. I help women find their identities in a healthy, biblical manner.
MA - Psychology, Brandman University
I did lay counseling for 10 years. I was limited to how much I could help those I worked with. I wanted to offer hope for those who's hurts were deeper and needed professional help.
I love spending time with my grandchildren as much as I possibly can. I love to bake with them and have movie nights with them. I love being a part of my church family and attending a weekly bible study.
Every morning I spend at least half an hour meditating along with reading different scriptures from the Bible.
My favorite non-profit organization is Saga. This organization offers hope in the faith community giving a safe place for pastors and church staff, in addition to the congregation of churches to share their stories without judgment and offer hope with a biblical foundation and a psychological perspective.
I get a massage and/or pedicure.
