About Me


My interest in helping others actually began at 10 yrs. old. I accidentally received a phone call at home from my father's client since he was a counselor.  Somehow, this client desperately found our home number. I explained to him that my father was not home, yet the client continued to share his pain with me. I felt a tug at my heart and my natural response was to comfort him. In retrospect, I believe the seeds of my present career were actually planted during that experience.

Studies have shown that success in therapy has been related to an individuals’ level of comfort and connection with a therapist. I strive to bring lively interest, compassion, perception and appropriate guidance to motivate individuals and couples. As a result, some clients shift from despair to hope. 

I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist specializing in individuals, couples and family therapy. I have a wide range of experience in the mental health field and have dedicated 20 years which include: outpatient mental health clinics/case management, domestic violence shelters, school systems, developmentally disabled programs for Autistic children and supporting couples.

I have special interest/training which includes relationships, recovering from affairs and depression. I also address stress management, building self-esteem, codependency, separation, divorce and life transitions.
