Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

As a wife, mother, step-mother and business owner, I am unique in my approach to marriage, families and divorced/step-families. I work with the county to help educate and support families experiencing divorce and can enhance the co-parenting experience.

Had a Negative Therapy Experience?

Many clients come to me with frustrating experiences in therapy. I'm pleased to say that not only do those clients express appreciaiton for my work with them, but I also have mental health professionals who seek my help for dating, marriage and parenting concerns. My goal is to have my clients trust me. Without that, there isn't a healthy working relationship.
