My Story

Some things need to be experienced to be truly understood, and life has gifted me with a plethora of perspectives. Years of extraordinary challenges took an increasing toll on my physical health and the effects became disabling. Being the only living parent to my young children, I embarked on a mission to reclaim my health and well-being. It was in this process that I discovered the reciprocal connection of mind and body, and the power of the human spirit. Reclaiming my health and rebuilding my life inspired the pursuit of another dream- helping others tap into their personal power, increase resiliency, and provide effective tools and support for navigating through their challenges.

 

Over fourteen years of volunteer peer support for the widowed community has offered deep insights into the unique needs of this underserved population. Covid gave me the extra nudge to finally take the leap and continue my education in Clinical Mental Health Counseling allowing me to make a difference on a deeper level with a wider reach. As a lifelong learner, I enjoy keeping up to date with the most effective methods of care while continuing to advance in my areas of specialization. What I've learned so far is there are many paths to healing, and everyone's path is uniquely their own. Let's discover yours together!
