About Your Practice
I had personal counselors throughout childhood and into adult life. Having gone through two divorces and living with an alcoholic, I learned so much about the importance of maintaining mental health and self-discovery. My son became addicted to opioids and the journey to sobriety with him was really where I made the decision that my gifts in guiding people toward healing were my calling. I am a counselor because I know feelings of hopelessness, loss, and despair, as well as those of faith and hope. I want to share that with others.
