If you are a woman looking for help navigating the many roles, transitions, relationships and issues across our life span, or you are a couple who are looking for help surviving and thriving, I’d love to help. This is my passion.

If you are a woman and one of the 40,000,000 adults over the age of 18 suffering from anxiety, I’d like to help. Having experienced my own period of anxiety, I have a great deal of empathy and compassion along with research based therapeutic modalities to work with you to get back to that place of a sense of well being.

If you are a couple that is struggling, I would  like to work with you. In my 40 years of  marriage, there have been many times that exiting seemed the best option, but doing work and seeking empathic, professional help, gave hope, understanding, new perspective and tools to make some necessary changes that give depth and shared history that’s irreplaceable.

There can be many life issues that we face that come from trauma experienced just from living in this world. I’m trained in both EMDR and Brainspotting which are empirically based modalities that help process trauma and help individuals break free from its impact.

I see women of all ages facing the many challenges, roles, transition and relational issues across our life span. It seems we are continually saying good-bye to one stage of life, relationships, identities and expectations that each require adaptability that often feel too great to manage. While we celebrate new options for our lives, it can be daunting and at times isolating. Of course, if you are struggling spiritually, I’d love to hear about and provide a safe place to explore and question

I received my Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy from Western Seminary in San Jose, CA and my Bachelor of Science degree from Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas. I love therapeutic work, being part of and watching others grow and find wholeness as it calls for and challenges my own personal growth. I love being married and hanging with my kids and grandkids. I also love the sunshine, daily exercise, reading and the continuing transformational process of life.
