Life is hard. We all, everyone of us, need help along the way. Perhaps you need help understanding and managing your emotions; overcoming anxiety or depression; building and maintaining healthy boundaries and relationships; healing from past hurts or traumas; dealing with feelings of inadequacy, shame or rejection; forgiving yourself and others. Perhaps you are a parent in need of help understanding and supporting a struggling child; communicating with your teenager or young adult; learning and using skills and tools to navigate these relationships.

Often our pain is an invitation to a new way, a better way. Anxiety can be crippling, depression debilitating, struggling with your partner painful and lonely, being a teenager or the parent of a teenager overwhelming, and struggling living out your spiritual belief and values confusing. I am here to help you find hope and change.

I am a straightforward, trustworthy, hopeful and, above all, loving person. I care deeply about each of my clients. I want what is best for you! In our work together, you will learn and benefit from my integrated approach, which will: 1) Focus on solutions to meet your most immediate needs; 2) Uncover impacts of your family of origin so that you can heal from them and develop new, healthy dynamics in your current and future relationships; 3) Identify the emotions subconsciously driving your choices and behaviors, often negatively; and 4) Integrate spirituality and/or faith in the process for those who desire to do so.

At painful times in my life I have sought individual, couple and family counseling and have benefitted immensely. I am grateful for my husband and our 28 years of marriage. We have changed and grown so much. We have two beautiful young adult sons and one wonderful dog named Marley. I love being outside: hiking the mountains of Oregon where we used to live; walking the beaches where we live now; swimming; walking anywhere; and biking. 

I earned my Master’s Degree in Counseling - Marriage, Couple and Family from Messiah University. I also earned a Master’s Degree in Health and Fitness Management from American University. 

Now is the time for a new beginning! Please contact me for a free 15-minute consultation.
