“It is hard to be happy in your life when you are unhappy in your relationship. Couples therapy brings you closer to your partner but it is also an investment in your own happiness.”
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Candidate with over twenty years of using my counseling experience in counseling, government, corporate America, and education. After receiving my Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology in 1992, I started my career counseling individuals, couples, families, and groups. My former husband of 26 years and I have four teenage children and one tween. With my varied background, pursuits, and experiences, I am passionate about working with couples, individuals, and families to enhance their life experience and ‘go deeper’.
What happens in therapy?
I work heavily with couples to ‘go deeper’. Whether you’re coming in because you feel like more like roommates than a married couple or you just can’t seem to get past the same fight, I will work with you to go deeper in your relationship. I help you and your partner to find out what the heart of the matter is and help you to overcome it. I also help you find new depths in your relationship so you can find a richer, more rewarding relationship.
I have a warm, balanced, and adaptable approach. If there is anything that you are uncomfortable talking about in therapy, there is no pressure or judgment from me. Therapy is for you and it is meant to accomplish what you want. I enjoy working with clients to identify solutions and reach resolution in a therapeutic setting that is people, learning, and meaning oriented.

Most of my professional counseling experience is working with clients facing major life changes, depression, trauma, anxiety, and relationship difficulties. I have also worked with at-risk group and their families in a school-based environment
I have used my counseling skills across industries, working for a US Senator, lobbying for environmentally clean fuels for a major energy corporation, and in education teaching children of varying ages from grade school to high school. Me and my former husband of 26 years have four teenagers and one tween. With my background, pursuits, and life experience I’m able to offer you a rich and unique perspective in counseling. I am passionate about my work with couples, individuals and families and look forward to helping you enhance your life experiences and deepen your important relationships.
What do you do for fun?
