Choose hope…
Taking even a small step in that direction…
Will open the door to great possibilities.


For some time we have been in the midst of very uncertain circumstances and the effects of it continue to impact us. The COVID-19 pandemic caused many of us to be unsure about our job situations, our finances, and our health. Many faced illness and far too many even lost their lives. Working and schooling from home have also taken a toll, as we have greatly altered our previous lifestyles with social distancing and other precautionary measures.

The stress of all these changes and the insecurity they brought about have affected all of us personally and relationally. Individuals, marriages, and families have been struggling in the aftermath. The stress and insecurity don’t just go away once we can begin to resume our more “normal” activities and ways of doing things.

It is important to remember that we can always reach out for help through the struggle and even learn how to grow through it. Challenges like these can offer us great opportunity for growth if we make that our choice.

Welcome!  I am here to help. 

Life is challenging.  It is full of both hurt, misunderstanding, betrayal and loss, and full of hope, healing, growth and joy.  Every difficulty in our lives brings with it the opportunity to either grow stronger and find the fulfillment we all long for or remain in a hole that leads us further into hurt and pain.  I love helping people CHOOSE HOPE and find how to OVERCOME and FLOURISH, regardless of circumstances around us. 

As a professional counselor, I have walked alongside people on their journeys to healing and wholeness since 1981.  I have seen the triumph and beauty in the human spirit as it heals from trauma and loss and is restored to a vibrancy that creates life possibilities they never before dreamed they could have.

I have had extensive experience working with adolescents, adults, singles, couples and families, and specialize in helping people discover hope and freedom from the challenges of:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Panic disorders
  • Childhood abuse in many forms
  • Chemical abuse
  • Addictions
  • Infidelity
  • Post-traumatic stress (PTSD)
  • Eating disorders
  • Parenting issues
  • Relational conflict 

This wide range of experience allows me to effectively assess needs, develop and apply strategies for addressing them with a brief, solution-focused emphasis.

Emotional, physical, and spiritual health are vital to truly enjoy the life we are meant to live, and I love helping people discover a more satisfying and nurturing life experience.

I use a blended style of counseling, with an emphasis on cognitive-behavioral techniques that help bring understanding to how we think and its impact on our life choices and behaviors. We all need effective and healthy communication and relational tools for life, and I work to bring hope to people as they gain and improve those important skills.

Are you ready to CHOOSE HOPE & DISCOVER what you need to help you on your life journey?  I am here to help.
