I began my professional career in public accounting, and corporate management at various companies. Over the last 25 years I have worked with business owners and employees to help them reach their personal and professional goals. During this work, I discovered my compassion and talent for empowering change and inspiring growth. This experience coupled with raising two children and maintaining a loving partnership with my husband of 25 years, inspired me to pursue a second career in counseling.
PHILOSOPHY AND THERAPEUTIC APPROACH
My approach is collaborative and client centered, rooted in systems theory. Life is a series of transitions. From a teen struggling with school, to going off to college, then marriage and children to watching your children graduate from college, these transition present challenges. I provide a safe and compassionate place to talk through these challenges. Working with individuals, couples and families, I treat anxiety, depression, parenting issues, relational distress and trauma. I also provide coaching in career transitioning. My work is informed by family systems theory, solution focused brief therapy, CBT, DBT, and experiential therapies. I have also been trained in using Gottman and EFT techniques for marriage counseling.
EDUCATION, LICENSE AND PROFESSIONAL MEMBERSHIPS
