I am a professional counselor trained and licensed as a Marriage & Family Therapist. I have worked in a variety of settings including private practice and as Clinical Director at an outpatient mental health clinic. I have offered a variety of seminars and workshops in my community covering a range of marriage and family topics, depression, anxieties, trauma, and bereavement. I have expertise in counseling couples in all stages of relationship and families in all stages including parenting, blended families, and divorce.
With a background as a Registered Nurse, I have a deep understanding of issues concerning chronic illness, end-of-life issues, and caregiver stresses. I am a certified EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Processing) clinician for treating PTSD and trauma related difficulties. As a Certified Spiritual Director, I am able to utilize the spiritual disciplines as a component of my practice for those clients that desire to incorporate them into their therapy process.
