Hello and welcome to my website! I'm so glad you are here. I am a married mother of two young adults about to journey on to their next destination. I have spent a number of years at home raising my kids and learning all about the developmental stages children go through on their way to adulthood. I love engaging with young people, especially teens and young adults and love helping parents navigate through the developmental joys and challenges. I love listening to others and helping guide them to living their best life. People find me easy to engage with and enjoy my humorous spin on things. People say I’m down to earth, reliable, and trustworthy and I think that comes through in my sessions with my clients.
I received my Master’s Degree in Social Work in the ‘90’s, and have been a lifelong learner since that time. I am known for referring my friends to great parenting books, articles or Ted talks. I have taken many classes and trainings over the years on topics such as parenting, trauma and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), specifically CBT for people with anxiety. My past work experiences include but are not limited to, working with victims of abuse and trauma; working with people who struggle with substances such as alcohol or opioids, and navigating mental health systems.
I look forward to meeting you!
