A Few Words About Me
I am a mother of two beautiful daughters, and 8 grandchildren. I love to enjoy the outdoors, whether it be walking in the rain, stomping through mud puddles, listening to the sound of the ocean, or feeling the warmth of sunshine beaming down on my face. In fact, when I grew up, my backyard was the woods. I also love to dance and spend time with family and friends.
I live life to the fullest, and believe anything can be accomplished, if the desire is there.
I have been in the counseling field since 1974 when I changed my 20 year career as a computer operator. I decided I wanted to work with people and not computers, so I went back to college, started in the counseling field and have never looked back.
I love helping others get “unstuck” in their lives and guide them to move forward to become the person they are meant to be, and find balance in their lives. I help people recognize how their ineffective behaviors are hurtful to themselves and others. A primary goal of my therapeutic style is allowing people to speak up from themselves, to remind them that they know what they need and how that helps them step into their own personal power!
“Follow your heart, but be quiet for awhile first.
Ask questions, then feel the answer. Learn to trust your heart.”
My hope is to guide people, allowing them to learn to trust themselves and to ask for what they need and want. To learn how to make healthy choices and to empower themselves to have healthier relationships with themselves and others.
Being a client-centered counselor, I create a safe, collaborative and respectful relationship. I want people to achieve sensitivity and an awareness of themselves and others, and to become aware of their potential and make healthy choices both personally and professionally. I want people to have a whole and healthy existence.
I welcome you to explore and bring in new awareness’s into your life. I strongly encourage you to take an active part in your changes and growth in your life!
