A LITTLE ABOUT ME:
If you hate humor, keep clicking. People tell me I’m warm, engaged, outgoing, and I have a lot to say when the time is right about exactly how to move through your challenges.
I’m a little sarcastic, because honestly? Life needs a little sarcasm. I get real in sessions, and sure, we might cry… but I can tell you right now that we’ll also laugh. (And PS: when you can laugh in therapy, that’s the hope coming back in, and it’s one of my happiest times as a counselor.)
Menopause… I get it. Enough said.
I came from a complicated family of origin. Maybe you did, too?
I’ve been through divorce, remarriage, and co-parenting, so if you’re struggling with any of those challenges, I’ve been right there in your shoes.
Like any good mom, I don’t let anyone go hungry. Inviting you into my office is like inviting you into my living room. There will always be coffee, snacks, and great conversation.
