Since 2002, my life’s purpose has centered on helping others. I have found tremendous purpose and fulfillment in connecting with individuals, through my work as a child, teen, and adult teacher, yoga instructor, school counselor, and most recently a marriage family therapist intern. In addition, I bring my life experience of being a mother of 3 and a wife for almost 15 years, into the counseling office. My clients and students say that I am warm, engaging, compassionate, accepting, creative, present…and from my pre-teens and teens, “REAL.” This quest for authenticity or “BEING REAL,” is what I venture to bring out in my clients. It drives my work and inspires me to help others in their journeys toward healing, self-discovery, truth, and change. I have worked with a varied and diverse clientele, but especially enjoy working with pre-teens, teens, families, couples and parents. Trauma, anxiety, grief, depression, relationship issues, spirituality, and behavioral and school issues, are all areas that I can help with. These struggles are what get in the way of uncovering our truth and living a life of fulfillment with ourselves and others. It is my hope, that you will allow me to guide and help you navigate your way through these hardships to a more authentic self.
