Who Am I?

I am a proud Mama to a son who has been the most wonderful thing to ever happen to me.  He was born prematurely and weighed just 2 small pounds.  Currently he is healthy and a normal kid in every way.  My husband and I have 3 dogs (it's true), 2 cats, and several fish.  We all love animals so our house could practically be called a zoo.  We love going to the pool, playing games and spending time together as a family.  My wish is to get in better shape and be more healthy.  I would love to travel more and see the world. 
I received my master's degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Friends University in Lenexa, KS.  I embarked on this professional path because I wanted to be of service to others.  After many years in the business world, I wanted to engage in work with meaning and heart.  After I had my son, I saw the world differently, from a new lens.  I searched for a career where I could use my various experiences, interests and skills to help people.  My hope is to help my clients clarify and understand where they have been, who and where they are now, and where they would like to go.  This journey and what I am learning from it is ongoing.    My qualifications include training in several techniques including EMDR (eye movement desensitization reprocessing), Prepare/Enrich, Love and Logic and sand tray therapy. EMDR is a cutting edge technique used to treat victims of trauma either recent or long past. With Prepare/Enrich I am able to provide a customized couples assessment completed online then walk through the couples strength and growth areas with them.  Love and Logic Training for parents helps give you the building blocks you need to raise children who grow up to be responsible, successful teens and adults.  Sand tray therapy can be used with all ages to process through life's past or current challenges.

I am a member of the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy, EMDR International Association, and Delta Kappa International Marriage and Family Therapy Honor Society.
