She believes that counseling is a practice of wellness. Whether life has been kind to you or has thrown you more curve balls than Nolan Ryan, counseling is a place where you can discover your inner strength to meet the challenges of life.

She has seen firsthand how beneficial counseling is for every person who has the courage to ask for help through the therapeutic process.
When she is not working, she enjoys spending time with her husband, her children, and her cats. If she’s not on a long run, she’s probably backstage helping her daughter with costume changes at her ballet recitals, calling out encouraging words to her twins at a swim meet, or cheering on her son at a cross country or track meet.
She has experience with ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy), Narrative Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. She is trained in the Gottman Method of marriage therapy and is a trained Prepare/Enrich facilitator.
