I just need to be heard.

Sometimes we just need to be heard. We want to just have a conversation about things in life without judgement. Talking with friends and family seems to overwhelm them, and honestly, it is a struggle to know what to say.

Stop holding back.

We all struggle to find personal motivation because our behaviors and beliefs hold us back. Fears are our enemy and keep us from the freedom in life that we desire.

Mental health counseling is just a conversation.

I believe that together, collaboratively, in a compassionate and accepting atmosphere, we can begin the crucial conversations needed for change.

We will work to strengthen your personal motivation for change. Then we will focus on your ability to formulate and select goals, construct plans, and act freely in the implementation of the change.

A guide to a healthier future

As a mental health therapist, my job isn’t to direct or educate but to be your guide to the answers within.

The focus, momentum, and content will be in the direction of change.

The goal is to build your capabilities and strengths that are already a part of your life story.

Areas of focus

Over the last 25 years, my career has been focused on creating better communities by helping those who struggle.

As a juvenile probation officer, I discovered that working with adolescents meant that you work with their entire family as a unit. I transitioned into adult probation and have been able to help many families make positive changes that impacted generations.

In recent years I have been focused on private practice and therapeutic intervention groups for teens and adults.

Who I am out of the office

In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, reading, barbecuing, painting, and spoiling my only daughter and my four cats.
