Profile
“I love people, enjoy my work, and enjoy giving my clients homework so they can continue their path of growth outside of our time together.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I was previously a learning specialist in the public school system. I was enjoying my work with families and became a family therapist. I began to see how big and little traumas affect our lives today. I went on to study trauma and how our bodies handle stress. I was fascinated by my continued learnings and how stress often presents as anxiety and depression.
What should someone know about working with you?
My specialties are marriage counseling, trauma, anxiety, depression, and family issues. I have a master’s degree in education as well as a master’s in family therapy. I am certified in hypnotherapy as well as EMDR. I do hypnotherapy around weight issues, self-esteem, performance anxiety, and pain release. I am the mother of three grown daughters. I was married for 40 years and my husband recently died after a long illness. I love people, enjoy my work, and enjoy giving my clients homework so they can continue their path of growth outside of our time together.
Have you done any research-based work that you found particularly exciting? How does it inform your practice today?
I studied Chinese Medicine for two years. It was very insightful and I incorporate my learnings into my practice today. I am very interested in natural healing methods and I support my clients in natural healing pursuits. Overall, I enjoy different cultures and love continued learning.
