Passionate about being a Marriage & Family Therapist:
We do because we care.
I work with both individual adults and couples. We will laugh, we might cry, we might get angry, we will celebrate and we will mourn; whatever the situation calls for. Because this is life – not rocket science. And hopefully, it will be more fun than rocket science. 🙂 It will be work, but it will be worth it when you get to your goals.
My specialties: listening, looking for strengths, & helping you figure out what you want.
My life experiences & training give the best of both worlds, recent info plus perspective for overcoming and coming alongside during difficulties.
I have a long history of helping people in many forms. And have been the “go to” person all of my life for others who were hurting, looking for direction or just needing a sounding board. About 14 years ago I finally made the move to “go pro” and get further education in counseling and coaching. I can help you make the changes you want in your life too, by coaching you to “go pro” in living the life you want.
Along the way in life, I have had to walk through lots of experiences that were fun and lots that weren’t, which helps me to be compassionate about what you’re going through. The short list is that I have walked through over 20 years of marriage, raising children, been on both ends of caretaking for serious health issues. I have been a stay-at-home mom, a widow, a single mom, an employee and a business owner/entrepreneur. I may not know exactly how you’re feeling but I can empathize. And did I mention, I am a Really Good Listener? 🙂
I love all kinds of music, comedies and action movies/TV shows, Dr Who, Star Trek, Iron Man and Big Bang Theory. But most of all, I love helping hurting people and people trying to reach for the life they desire to build. Let’s Thrive!
