I started my quest for a career at my local community college.  I took a ‘what do you want to be when you grow up’ kind of class.  One thing that has always stuck in my mind is something the professor told us.  She said that a job is something you do to pay your bills; a career is something you would do if you didn’t have to work.  She suggested that we volunteer our time somewhere, and if we liked it enough to do it for free, we’d most likely stick with it and enjoy it.
So that was my beginning in the counseling field.  I volunteered with children who had survived some type of abuse.  I heard stories of tremendous trauma and pain and saw that with hope and guidance, survival is possible.  It was working in this setting that I learned that healing and change can’t happen without a safe place to talk where there are no judgments.
At the domestic violence shelter, I worked with kids who were lucky enough to have one parent to rescue them from the abuse going on at home.  At my next place of employment, I began working with kids in the foster care system who had been taken away because no one protected them.  No one in their family said “enough is enough”.  I was dealing with kids who were taken from all that they knew to a new home, a new school and then were expected to make new friends and adjust, all because of something someone else did.  It was there that I really learned about resiliency.  I saw kids who, with a little help, were able to succeed even after their lives had been turned upside down.
After over 10 years of working with kids, and having two of my own, I decided to give adults a try.   I began seeing individuals and couples in a private practice setting.  The main issues that people seem to be encountering are depression, anxiety, communication problems within their relationship, and most recently, effects of economic hardship in their lives.   In my private practice, I incorporate the lessons of the past;  I strive to provide a safe place a person can go and be themselves, with no judgments.  I continue in my belief that resiliency resides in everyone.  I truly believe that change is possible and that everyone has room for improvement in their lives (including me).  It is a lifelong journey that I am honored to be able to help facilitate within the therapy process. SESSION FEES Are $75-$150 (depending on your income). Full time college students are $75 per session (please call for availability of student fee).
