I am a former special education teacher, a retired homeschooler, mother of two teen sons, and a wife of 23 years. My goal as a counselor is to connect with clients where they are today and help them pursue their goals for wholeness and wellness. My approach emphasizes the interaction among thoughts, feelings, and actions as well as the connection of mind, body, and spirit. My experience as an educator and homeschooler has equipped and inspired me to work with children, adolescents, and their families who are facing a variety of life’s challenges. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate, a National Certified Counselor, a member of the American Counselor Association and the American Association for Christian Counselors.
