About me

Thanks for taking peek at my bio! My approach is wholistic--meaning I draw upon a variety of clinical theories. My first task to to provide deep listening in an effort to understand. I try and look at the whole picture and how the pieces all fit together for you and your context. I am direct, candid, and solution focused with kindness, curiosity and gratitude as my foundation.

A little about me: I have three advanced degrees in divinity, social work and media studies and I have worked in a wide variety of settings across 13 states. I also have five grown daughters. Wanderlust is in my blood--I have been fortunate to have travelled to over 80 countries, and always hoping there is more on the horizon. Additionally, I am a certified Laughing Yoga instructor--Ho, Ho, Ho, Ha, Ha. Innovation and creativity are in my wheelhouse. All these diverse experiences and education inform all that I do and who I am.

I would love to learn about you and talk about your journey.

Dr. Lovaas has been a friend and guide through the most challenging period of my life. He strikes a fine balance between shooting straight and compassionate understanding. He’s also solution oriented instead of talking in circles endlessly which has helped me process my emotions.

Can’t think of, or say enough good things about Dr Lovaas. He’s helped me by just listening intently, understanding my issues, making wise suggestions, and helping me see for myself some truths about my life. All of this has been very helpful and I’ve recently started feeling hopeful again. What more could you ask for?
