I am very passionate working alongside individuals, couples, and adolescences with life’s challenges, family issues, and personal struggles. Through my life experience of being married for over 36 years, raising a blended family, and experiencing life’s trials, I am able to empathize, encourage and empower my clients to reach their maximum potential of who they are to be.
My experience working 25 years in a school district setting, allowed me the opportunity to assist students (K-12), parents and teachers who faced challenges with disabilities. I have also had experience working with addictions, anxiety, depression, mental illness and trauma while working with the homeless population.
