Do you want help to improve your relationships or personal life and not have it take forever? I don't know anyone who wants to be in therapy or life coaching for many months and years. I tell clients that I'm trying to work myself out of a job :-). In our sessions we will collaborate together to improve your life satisfaction, find peace, and discard behaviors and roadblocks holding you back from achieving your best hopes. Contact me if you are ready to see progress and make your goals happen! Ask about a free 20-minute consultation.

I combine client-centered and solution-focused therapy. These approaches empower you to realize your abilities, skills, and resources to reach your goals. You'll be amazed at what you can accomplish! I want to help you and get out of the way. :-) This approach tends to foster quicker outcomes.

I hope my passion and enthusiasm for helping you shines through in our sessions. I love what I do! Please contact me to ask a question or clarify something I have said here. I am available for day and evening appointments during the week.

More detail if you’re interested . . .
One of my favorite types of clients are young adult professional women in their 20's, 30s, and early 40s. Are you a young adult woman who struggles with how to be a leader of your own life? Are there things you want to accomplish in your personal or professional life where you feel a bit stuck? Has the speed of life and the chaos of relationships sparked increased anxiety that has taken you by surprise? Life can feel like it has knocked us down through depression, worry, anger, or having no emotion at all. You don't want to continue to live this way, but all of the ways you have sought help have not seemed to work.

I never promise to be the silver-bullet counselor or coach. If any counselor or life coach does promise you that...RUN! But I will tell you that I absolutely love what I do. I delight in people and their stories. I want you to have a shame-free, edit-free zone. I also want you to find the best counselor to fit your needs. If that's me, then great! If that means helping you find another counselor, then that's great too!

I'm a life coach and a licensed Christian counselor. For me that means that while I have training and skills in individual, marriage, and family counseling, I'm ultimately dependent on God and the Holy Spirit to bring out about deep and lasting life change in others. I often tell friends that I would be a neurotic counselor without Jesus, as I would feel the pressure to ultimately change and help people.

I've been coming alongside of young adult professional women as either a mentor, coach, or counselor for 20+ years. I lived and worked in Philadelphia, PA and recently moved to Michigan. I'm an East Coast transplant, but I'm enjoying Michigan a lot.

I'd be happy to connect with you for a free 20-minute consultation so we can start to get to know each other and see if we're a fit. Finding someone you can unplug with and tell your story to is not easy; and deciding to contact a counselor or coach to begin the journey can feel like a lead-weight. But kudos to you for even seeking out potential help.

Once you are ready, give me a ring.



[ Note: My counseling and life coaching practice is strictly private pay, so I do not take insurance. If you enter into counseling (not coaching) and there is a struggle you are having that an insurance company would view as a diagnosable problem, I'd be happy to provide you with an itemized receipt that you can submit to your insurance company. But this is no guarantee that you will be reimbursed. ]
