After retiring as a 30 year high school exceptional education teacher, I leveraged my mental health counseling education, wealth of experience in the classroom and became licensed as a professional counselor in 2018. Prior to becoming a licensed professional counselor I was a superivised associate professional counselor. I have worked and continue to work with clients with a wide range of challenges-anxiety, depression aging, ADHD, Aspergers, HIV, and substance abuse. I will attempt to guide, support and provide each client with the tool that will help to educate, encourage and empower them.
My goal is to provide a safe place to help you rewrite your current narrative, because I fee that change is inevitable, change can be challenging, but most of all, change can be beautiful.
