About Me

Welcome. I'm so grateful you're here. Our paths are crossing at this critical point in your life. Life is messy, and filled with challenges. If you feel like your past is prohibiting you in any way, this is the right place for you. A place to grow, heal and be hopeful again. My desire as a therapist is for you to discover your value and worth. My warmth and compassion will provide you a safe place to explore...the hurt, anxiety, stress, loss, pain and shame you have experienced. You are brave enough to start the process. I'm mindful of the vulnerability that it takes to step into the process of therapy. My approach is holistic, meaning we connect the mind, body and spirit in the healing journey. I would love to join you, right where you are. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and have offered a wide range of counseling and psychological services since entering the counseling field in 2003. My passion is helping achievement-driven women and healers in Florida and Michigan who want to process and heal from past trauma. Trauma can be anything that is too much for too long, too little for too long, or too much in a short period of time. Before my work as a therapist, I worked in the corporate world for 20+ years. At some point, I realized I was looking for more meaning and purpose for my life. It became clear that people are what matter most. Our families, friends and neighbors. I am passionate about the work I do. It's my calling.
