I have experience in many areas, including depression, anxiety, coping skills, life coaching, anger and stress management, trauma, parenting, behavior problems, caregiver issues, and many others. I enjoy working with individuals of all ages, enjoying the challenges all ages bring. I strive to provide the client an eclectic range of therapeutic modes, to assist them in achieving their goals in an accepting, compassionate, culturally sensitive environment.

I love to travel! I have been lucky to travel to many places in the world, stopped only by Covid! I love to cook and bake and enjoy gardening, music, and art.
I love reading and have too many favorite books to list, but I will read anything by Barbara Kingsolver more than once!
I enjoy spending time with family and friends enjoying good food, games, and scintillating conversation.
I love all animals and currently have a dog, Lester, and a cat, Betsy. They were both rescues and have lived with me for five years.
