Registered Nurse
Licensed Professional Counselor
Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Nationally Certified Counselor

"I enjoy working with a variety of clients. My training as a marriage and family therapist has prepared me to work with individuals, couples, children, and family groups. In combination with my background in nursing, I recognize the relationship between physical health and emotional well being. I have always been fascinated by the unique differences in people and enjoy assisting individuals and families to discover their own strengths and resources. Challenging times are often what brings someone into therapy and it is at these times we are most motivated to look deeply into ourselves and are able to find our undiscovered strengths."
