We will work as a team to explore who you are and build on that to find what works for you.

My Therapy Style

Therapy is about finding what works for you. Do you hate deep breathing? That's fine! Meditation, is not your thing? Cool. Let's use that knowledge to find the tools that will work for you. We will work as a team to explore who you are and build on that to find what works for you. That might mean challenging your mindsets, talking out your experiences, increasing your communication skills, or stopping some of those thoughts that won't stop sticking in your mind. Whatever it takes to help you meet your goals, I have something in my toolbox that will be a good fit. And if I don't, I'll find it. There is no one-size-fits-all.

Get to Know Me

What are your interests outside of work?

When I'm not working, my focus is on my family. As a mother of six sons, there is always someone needing a shoulder to cry on, an ear to listen, a wound cleaned, or a form signed. Four of my children have special needs and my focus is on helping them to embrace their challenges AND their strengths while also seeing both in each other.

What is one thing you do daily that supports your well-being?

I laugh. Every single day I find something to laugh about. I practice what I preach and I strive to show my clients that sometimes laughter really is the best medicine.

What book have you read more than once?

With so many books to read why would you read any twice!? I am on my second or third time reading each of the books in the Hinges of History series by Thomas Cahill.

How do you recharge?

I believe everyone should have a guilty pleasure. I have two! I love celebrity gossip and look forward to ending my work week by curling up on my couch, popping open News Plus on my iPad, and reading the newest copy of People Magazine. My second guilty pleasure is reality TV. I love anything related to the 90 Day Finance universe (Big Ed is on my top 5 list of fantasy clients) and don't get me started on my feelings about each of The Real Housewives franchises.

Do you have any pets?

I have 4 wonderful fur babies. Coco is a Pomeranian/Chihuahua mix and Lucy is a Goldendoodle. We also recently added two kittens to our family, Felix and Curie.
